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.

Ulysses S. Grant's life has typically been misunderstood. All too often he is caricatured as a chronic loser and an inept businessman or as the triumphant but brutal Union general of the Civil War. But these stereotypes don't come close to capturing him, as Chernow sows in his masterful biography, the first to provide a complete understanding of the general and president whose fortunes rose and fell with dizzying speed and frequency.

On May 21, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day.

Truly spectacular, I really needed to hear this message. Directly applies to my life in the private sector and I have listened to it more than once, it was fantastic listening to Admiral McRaven present the book in his own voice. You don't expect the candor or to hear of his failures-----MUST MUST Read/listen you won't regret the purchase!

What could Zig Ziglar have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

stop screaming at me

Would you be willing to try another one of Zig Ziglar’s performances?

no

What character would you cut from The Born to Win Seminar?

the zig ziglar singers
