If I had to sum up his main point and reason for writing the book I would say it was to state his belief that Thomas Paine's Common Sense may have been the single most powerful catalyst for turning American hearts and minds towards the great task of independence from Great Britain at the particular time in which it did; not that.

I first read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, the 46 Pages referred to in the title of Scott Liell’s book, a few years ago and I could not understand why every student in the United States is not.

Selling more than 100,000 copies in its first three months of publication, 46 Pages has received enthusiastic praise from David McCullough, Joseph J. Ellis, and other historians.

In this book Scott Liell examines the impact that Thomas Paine's pamphlet "Common Sense" had on American sentiment and the move toward independence. Liell argues, and does so quite persuasively, that Common Sense is what finally tipped the balance in favor of those who wanted to break from Britain, and that the work was largely responsible for the enormous shift in sentiment that occurred between the Continental Congress's Olive Branch petition in 1775 and the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

About the Author: Scott Liell is a member of the Thomas Paine National Historical Association in Boston. He lives in Madison, Connecticut.

Thomas Paine, a native of Thetford, England, arrived in America's colonies with little in the way of money, reputation, or prospects, though he did have a letter of recommendation in his pocket from Benjamin Franklin. Paine also had a passion for liberty in all its forms, and an abiding hatred of tyranny. His forceful, direct expression of those principles found voice in a pamphlet he wrote entitled Common Sense, which proved to be the most influential political work of the time. Ultimately, Paine's treatise provided inspiration to the second Continental Congress for the drafting of the Declaration of Independence. 46 Pages is a dramatic look at a pivotal moment in our country's formation, a scholar's meticulous recreation of the turbulent years leading up to the Revolutionary War, retold with excitement and new insight.

A real page turner...I had to read the book in one sitting.

Before I purchased "46 Pages", Thomas Jefferson represented, to me, the voice of American independence. After reading this book, I see that I am wrong. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington would never have been able to persuade the "average colonial American" to break free from England. That required a man who could talk in the language of the street corner radical, who could burst the myth of American's attachment to the crown. That required Thomas Paine. Buy this book and discovery why so.

Full of additional information surrounding the writing of “Common Sense.” If you are a history buff it’s a very enjoyable read.
Nothing personal
I purchased this book to add to my collection of historical references in my home library. I am a graduate student and am researching the American Revolution. I have found this book to be essential in my research. I would highly recommend this book. While it includes Common Sense it also includes a great introduction and analysis.

Good background from Liell and Paine's Common Sense requires no extra praise from me.

This was a great book. A quick read about a pamphlet that led a 13 mere colonies to go to war against an Empire.

I purchased this book for my granddaughter who is a history major in college. She has enjoyed it and has recommended it to friends.

okay
Very well-written book. The inclusion of "Common Sense" at the end is especially valuable. The content is solid and interesting but leans a little too much collation of existing info and there isn't so much new research on Paine. You will particularly enjoy the description of Paine's time in England prior to his emigration to the US. Definitely belongs on your bookshelf.
