The book does quite a bit of editorializing without providing more than a line to substantiate its claims.
As a person who references the 1828 daily, its my opinion that while Kendall obviously admires Webster, he has little idea of the value of what Webster produced.
While this particular rendition of Webster's life seemed well researched, it wasn't fun - at all. It was dry and too hung up on minutia that didn't drive the narrative. I listened to the first 5 chapters then skipped to the last one for some closure.
If you are a diehard historian and are keen to learn more on the early days of America, you'll probably love this book though.
