Glenn Beck does an great job of bringing George Washing to life not just in the book but in our hearts and everyday lives as well. It is written beautifully, painting our beloved first president as a humble man, believing in God and trusting that with patience and prayer even the most impossible task is possible.
I am, however disappointed there is no mention of George Washington being a Freemason. Freemasonry was an extremely large part of his and other Founding Father's lives that this had to be a blatant mission. This is surprising since Mr. Beck himself states,and I am paraphrasing here, that history books published after 1950 are mostly written by liberals with an agenda, filled with half truths. I agree with Mr. Beck on this but I do feel a bit slighted by his lack of honesty in the telling of Mr. Washington's life. I find it confusing that he felt the need to write about Mr. Washington joining the Sons of the Revolution which, although a very worthy organization, holds most of the same ideals of Freemasonry which are mentioned in the book, yet Freemasonry was not mentioned at all.
Overall this book is a great listen. You will learn a lot form Mr. Beck on the man we have been told was larger than life itself. You will find yourself looking at situations differently and thinking, what would George Washington do? You will see parallels in past situations in your live verses Mr. Washington's. Dont be surprised if this book actually changes your way of thinking about and taking on situations.
