To be honest, I haven't read anything by David McCullough. I've actually been wanting to read John Adams
for quite some time but never got around to reading it. I've heard a lot of people say that it's one of the best biographies they've ever read. So I'm extremely interested and will definitely be reading it sometime.

Another good one is Six Frigates: The Epic History of the Founding of the U.S. Navy by Ian W. Toll.
