'American Founding Son'
At times, I find his blogging a bit shallow, but Gerard Magliocca generally is fair and has an evenhanded mind about things, even if he self-represents as leaning somewhat right. I enjoyed his past books and his John Bingham bio is pretty good. Still, at under two hundred pages (lots of notes), he could have added more detail at times. Bingham btw doesn't do originalism that much favors. He's rather opaque at times, others having changing, at times idiosyncratic views. He also is a flawed character when it comes to liberty. Perhaps, this human quality (politician too) appeals in the long run.
