Reviews

"When one examines systematically and scientifically a summary of, arguments for Strong Thomas Jefferson Hypothesis (or even HTJW) and arguments against Strong Thomas Jefferson Hypothesis —and that is how this book differs from other books arguing against Jefferson’s paternity—one sees clearly that the case for pro-paternity thesis is frangible. There is too little evidence for it and that evidence is flimsy, and there are four key eyewitness testimonies either against it or that suggest caution."
