    Joseph Patrick Kennedy - whose life spanned the First World War, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, and the Cold War - was the patriarch of America’s greatest political dynasty. The father of President John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert and Edward Kennedy, 'Joe' Kennedy was an indomitable and elusive figure whose dreams of advancement for his nine children were matched only by his extraordinary personal ambition and shrewd financial skills.

    Robert says: "Wonderfully entertaining and engaging"
    "A "Must Read" for Irish Americans"

    Story

    In Washington: A Life celebrated biographer Ron Chernow provides a richly nuanced portrait of the father of our nation. This crisply paced narrative carries the reader through his troubled boyhood, his precocious feats in the French and Indian War, his creation of Mount Vernon, his heroic exploits with the Continental Army, his presiding over the Constitutional Convention, and his magnificent performance as America's first president.

    Story

    This book is an informative overview of the life of George Washington. It is not an "exciting novelization" of his life but rather a thoughtful telling of the story, The narrator got the style right, too - a quiet, powerful reading. I enjoyed listening to this book for an hour or two at a time - in tasty bites. My favorite feature may be the intersection between Washington and the other founding fathers, their different personalities and political perspectives. Martha, too - it is interesting how she compared to Dolly Madison! A very worthwhile book if you enjoy history -- and want to polish up your knowledge about the first president and his time.
