i drive a truck full of produce,and have tons of time to listen
not just a book of dates & deeds, this book uses large amounts of his personal correspondence to give you a feel for how he thought .just try to find a book telling of his relationship with his family more complete than this
john adams, you get to know them as people
find out why we call him the father of our country
It took me from November to March to finish this long, detailed account of a Washington's life. A very thorough book it, would have been improved by less detail for every portrait for which he posed.
Great narrating from Scott Brick really went by fast for 41 hrs a lot of great new information pros and cons about general Washington but what a fantastic president and great patriot of America would highly recommend to all!
This book brought Washington alive, giving new meaning to who he was and his impact. Even though this book on average was 5 times longer than what I normally listen too, it seemed as though it was shorter. I was sad to see it end!
Not a dull moment in the book! I thought I understood Washington but this book really opened my eyes. I am still amazed at the depth, research, and analysis of his life.
I appreciated reading about washington's life through his letters. His young years when he tried to get credentials in the British Army but found that he was not taken seriously because he was a colonial was fascinating.
I enjoyed learning about others, like Jefferson, from Washington's perspective.
He has always been at once bigger than life, but without the "personality" that goes with the general description of other founding fathers. So, I enjoyed learning more about Washington, the man.
This is an exhaustive look at the life of Washington as a teacher of history I loved this look at our first president. At over 40 hours it is not for the faint of heart to undertake.
