A regular guest on Morning Joe, he is known as a skilled raconteur with a depth of knowledge about politics, religion and current affairs.

Meacham's latest Presidential biography, "Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush," debuted at #1 on the New York

His #1 New York Times bestseller, "Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power," was hailed as "masterful and intimate" by Fortune magazine. His other national bestsellers include "Franklin and Winston," "American Gospel" and "American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House," which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009.
