Reviewer: David Waldstreicher, (Boston Globe)

"Some of Stoll's best passages come when he matches the events to Adams's surviving newspaper writing, revealing the canny journalist behind the icon. Sam Adams failed as a tax man but found his vocation denouncing them. To watch Adams come into his own is to see the beginnings of American journalism and politics."

"This account might sustain a renewed interest in Adams as the founder of a distinctly American spirit."

Reviewer: Jay Freeman, (Booklist)

"Stoll effectively conveys both the virtues and defects of a somewhat neglected but very essential figure in our Revolutionary struggle."
