He fought for Washington, served with Lincoln, witnessed Bunker Hill, and sounded the clarion against slavery on the eve of the Civil War. He negotiated an end to the War of 1812, engineered the annexation of Florida, and won the Supreme Court decision that freed the African captives of La Amistad. He served his nation as minister to six countries, secretary of state, senator, congressman, and president. John Quincy Adams was all of these things and more. In this biography, Harlow Giles Unger reveals Adams to be a towering figure in the nation's formative years and one of the most courageous figures in American history.

John Quincy’s life in the last disc is fantastic. Get this, and if you do nothing else, listen to the last disc (which is less than an hour).

The first half of the book is more about his father, John Adams, than John Quincy. I will admit, kinda hard to write the life story of John Quincy without mentioning his dad, but it seemed to me that it was way too much about his though the author was trying to stretch the story out. Thus, the second half was much better.
