Exemplary…so far as any real information is concerned [this] is the only biography we have of Henry Adams.—Alfred Kazin, The New York Review of Books

To penetrate [the Adams] concealments and disguises requires the art of the historian and the skill of the psychiatrist. Mr. Samuels, Professor of English at Northwestern, has both the art and the skill, and he has combined them effectively.—Henry Steele Commager, The New York Times Book Review
