ABSTRACT
This article presents information regarding the book "The Jefferson Reader," edited by Francis Coleman Rosenberger. This book is a pleasant addition to the growing list of books on the great Virginian. For those who have little time to plough through the vast literature on Jefferson that is now available, it furnishes a quick and easy guide to the many facets of Jefferson's life, his insatiable pursuit of learning, his great skills and contributions in so many arts and sciences, his role as an aristocrat in the evolution of democracy in the U.S., above all his faith in the people.
