I loved His Excellency and would gladly recommend it to others. I don't know what the other reviewers were complaining about, I thought the narration was fine and kept me engaged. Washington truly was a man for the ages. He won two major battles out of the whole revolutionary war and went on to lead the country as a "national hero" that even Jefferson dared not defame until later in his career. I found the book evenhanded and quite thurough. I am a conservative and had no issues with Ellis' take on the President and recommend it to history buffs like me.
