Read from February 02 to 06, 2012

This was a painful book to read, I finally quit about 75% of the way through. Beck synthesizes a narrative that is a terrible combination of inspiration, speculation, political opinion, and religious zeal. The pattern of the book is (1) chronological story sprinkled with tongue-in-cheek political remarks, (2) description of how amazing Washington is compared to his contemporaries, (3) attempt to relate Washington's triumphs to those of our own, (4) and an awe-stricken sense of how much God was on his side; lather, rinse, repeat.
