    If you think you know George Washington, think again. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It's a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.

    Dell says: "My hero has been brought back. Thanks Glenn."
    "Inspiring and enlightening"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Being George Washington the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Being George Washington to and why?

    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.


    What does Ron McLarty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He read it with the same enthusiasm that I feel Glenn Beck wrote it with. It was enjoyable to listen to!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was thrilled with what I was learning!


    Any additional comments?

    I was very inspired by this book.

    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....
