Publisher's Summary

George Washington-a man of honor, bravery and leadership. He is known as America's first president, a great general, and a humble gentleman, but how did he become this man of stature?

The Education of George Washington answers this question with a new discovery about his past and the surprising book that shaped him. Who better to unearth them than George Washington's great-nephew, Austin Washington? Most Washington fans have heard of The Rules of Civility and learned that this guided our first president. But that's not the book that truly made George Washington who he was. In The Education of George Washington, Austin Washington reveals the secret that he discovered about Washington's past that explains his true model for conduct, honor, and leadership - an example that we could all use.

    "Not the same old biography"
    If you could sum up The Education of George Washington in three words, what would they be?

    This biography of George Washington is not a mere telling of his life story. It explains how he became the George Washington we all know. Rather than boring the listener with unimportant facts about his life, the book explains what was behind the important decisions in his life and ultimately the important decisions for our country. The narrator keeps the story interesting. I have listened to many biography audiobooks, and the majority of the narrators almost put me to sleep. Anyone interested in history would really enjoy this.
