    Acclaimed author Joseph J. Ellis penned the National Book Award-winning American Sphinx and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Founding Brothers, a fixture on The New York Times best seller list for an entire year, and one of the most popular history books of all time. Now this master historian turns his attention to the most exalted American hero, Founding Father and first President George Washington.

    Overall

    This book was incredibly enjoyable. One of my favorite audio books because of the objective approach and interesting aspects of Washington that are presented. It's very detailed but not overly so. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this man. I had never known much about the "primus inter pares" of the revolution before but now I see why so many people were willing to follow him. The author does a great job in his writing and Washington seems like such an interesting subject in his hands that you can't help but enjoy the ride.

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book for anyone that likes fantasy, and the work of Brandon Sanderson. It's well made and something nice to listen to while we all wait for the last WOT book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the mystery in the plot. I kept wondering how things were going to go and there are plenty of twists and turns, really nice and suspenseful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to listen to it all in one sitting, but I have work and other things going on.


    Any additional comments?

    You might be turned off by how the magic system works in this book at first, although once you get into the meat of the book it all starts to make a lot more sense and it feels less gimmicky.

    Guys: imagine you're out somewhere alone or maybe with a friend or two...you see an attractive woman you'd like to meet...you really want to go over and start a conversation with her...but something stops you...you keep glancing at her, and you keep thinking that you should approach her...but something stops you and you don't.

    Overall

    I'm not an expert so I can't be sure of the quality of the advice... but it is unnecessarily wordy and repetitive. It's an interesting approach but it should be cheaper and it should probably be a little less annoying in its use of repetition. I can't say I highly recommend it but it is not complete trash either. It's also more of a program than a book so be prepared to spend 24 days minimum doing all of the exercises.
