Simply that this man stood on conviction and you nailed it.
The real George Washington.
I think that the hamilton and jefferson blow ups were very enlightening about our founding fathers.
I feel that the descriptions of the battles and the battles within the continental congress meetings were great depictions of the truth that our country faces even today. However, today we have more blotheating fools in our congress.
George Washington was a good and loyal man. It was exciting to be in battle with him and learn about him. Thank you for a wonderful experience..
Absolutely..... I already have!
Nothing in my experience compares......
I have not.
Some of it made me tear up, the sacrifices our early countrymen made for this great country! The faith that Washington demonstrated was so reassuring as to the principles that our country and consititution were based upon.
You will not regret taking the time to read or listen to this book. It is a fascinating portal into a time we should all know more about........our history!
I have read much about the revolutionary war, the founding fathers of our country, etc. This book added elements other authors did not add in their books. For example, I have known for a long time that the weather played a big part in the outcome of the revolutionary war, but I didn't know as much about it as I would have liked. Glen Beck gives a lot of detail about it. It was fun and inspiring to learn these things.
1776 by David McCullough. That also had lots of interesting detail and is a very good book. It also helped me understand George Washington better.
He read it with the same enthusiasm that I feel Glenn Beck wrote it with. It was enjoyable to listen to!
I was thrilled with what I was learning!
I was very inspired by this book.
I was specifically pleased about how the book was like a novel with historical significance and yet you were moved by the character that was brought out about George Washington.
Yes I would listen again. It is not just a great book about a great man. It makes me want to be a better person, period.
Heroism, honor, and sacrifice. What it takes to be a real-life super hero!
I like the
The best among the biographies I've read.
Beck decided to tell the story in a entertaining narrative, using Washington's person moral codes as the thematic backdrop for the telling. And as Washington believed God's hand guided the events of his life, Beck told the story in a way that shared that same beliefl. Excellent!
Not familiar with the narrarator, but I thought he did well.
Many. I loved Washington's impassioned plea to his troops to fight for liberty, even when it seems Congress was unable to care for them or compensate them.
Honestly, I don't follow Glenn Beck very closely, and was a bit skeptical about the book. But as a great admirer or Washington and curious about the idea of telling his story in a more novelesque fashion, I bought it. It exceeded my expectation and kept me riveted.
This book is irritating with all the references to god. At other times I was exasperated by his insistence on how George Washington and the americans showed the world the way of freedom. If that is so, why is there no mention anywhere of John Locke whose writings were so influential to the Declaration of Independence. Also references to the French Revolution do not seem to take any note that the French Revolution was more like a civil war as the enemy was within. The American revolution was a much cleaner affair as the enemy was a foreign power. As we know, the Americans did eventually have their own bloody civil war. This book is annoying.
Not if it is like this one.
Far too contrived. Too much acting.
Typical Glenn Beck with is occasional tongue in cheek comments. I could have done without those.
George Washington's life of service to his country and the way he lived his entire life is a model for all American's to follow. The stories of the battles, the relationships, and the betrayals are told in a way that should be used in every school.
