This is the history of George Washington who was a president, a general, and a Founding Father of a new nation. But, most of all, it is the story of George Washington the man.

This is my first biography of George Washington, and it reads very well, with a lot of personal and historical insight. I imagined reading this story out loud to a middle school or High School History class with very good results. This is the kind of material that can really bring history to life without forcing the reader to get dragged into too much scholarly speculation or endless questioning.

Unlike many other ancient peoples, the culture and beliefs of the Israelites exist in modern society. They managed to survive through wars, persecution, and numerous revisions and adaptations caused by new invaders or internal rebellions. Because of their significance in contemporary society, it’s important to learn more about the Israelites in order to fully understand how they developed and managed to contribute so heavily to the current culture of the Western world.

3 hrs and 19 mins, but super fluid stuff. I love that each chapter is specific, so even when I'm tired, I can usually finish a chapter. If I'm having trouble falling asleep, I can finish a few chapters. This book does not seem to have too much depth, but that is expel yes with such a broad swath of material covered.

They can be used to manipulate people or turn an argument sour, derailing it from the get-go. This audiobook will give you the tools to fight logical fallacies and make your arguments completely bulletproof logically. Moreover, if you want to be a great debater, it will help you learn all the ins and outs of logical fallacies so you can laugh (inside) as your opponent gets stuck in them.

Simone Jacobs teaches a different mindset in that I am breaking my food addiction cycle and replacing the reliance on comfort foods with a reliance on a relationship with God. Once that happened, I was able to eat foods that my body needed to function within the eating window and incorporate intermittent fasting to strengthen my relationship with God.
