I don't think so
Not looked at Washington from a 2000 perspective. It is wrong to judge someone two hundred years later.
This book was very thoroughly researched with innumerable references to the personal and official letters of our first President. I whole heartedly believe that this book should be read or listened to by every American. Many concerns raised by President Washington when the country was being founded are still major issues to this very day, especially politicians placing themselves and their parties before the Good of the Citizenry and the Country!
I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking an accurate history not provided by our history books and childhood stories. It was a perfect snapshot of our American beginnings without an apparent bias.
Ron Chernow is a brilliant writer, and this is just another example of his genius. I came to this book after reading his biography of Hamilton which is just as good. Scott Brick is a fabulous reader as well, so I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in Washington's life or American history in general.
I like excellent novels or history. Non fiction is the most interesting to me.
Gave me insights into who he was as a person with all his strengths and flaws!
