There is no arguing that Brands is an engaging writer and that much of Jackson s story is captivating The book is at it s best when showing his rise from relative obscurity to nation wide fame While Brands is clearly a fan of Jackson he shows the man s faults even if he excuses much of them by arguing that he was a man of his times and little could be expected I found this approach to be significantly harder to accept once Brands reached Jackson s presidency The debate over the bank system gets far attention than issues of eual if not greater importance like Jackson s policy towards Native Americans I found it hard to accept that actions that led to the infamous Trail of Tears could be dealt with in a way that left Jackson seeming as little than a man of consistent and pragmatic views towards these people Not that I want to see Jackson cast as a villain exactly I just felt like Brands rushed past these difficult moments because they got in the way of a positive depiction of a complicated and fascinating man I d recommend the book overall mostly because of Brands s engaging style I would do so however with the suggestion that readers seek out other Jackson biographies to get a broader sense of the man
