In Karsner's profile of Jackson, he weaves together historical facts using dialogue, vivid settings, and a distinctive voice, to bring his characters to life. Within the book he stresses that his goal is to concern "himself with the single task of telling Andrew Jackson's story; or, perhaps, what is more accurate, letting Jackson's story tell itself." In doing so, he relies upon numerous historical documents, original manuscripts and letters, and an extensive bibliography that appears at the end of the text.
