Confession: I am a shameless George Washington admirer and I try to read as much on him as I can find. I burned through this book in about four days, thanks largely to Beck's conversational yet erudite writing. Beck puts the events of Washington's life into not only the context of his own time period, but also draws parallels applicable for today. Lest anyone think this is a mere glossy "Hollywoodized" tome, Washington's faults are also analyzed without being justified or dismissed. Of particular interest is the fascinating subplot involving the traitor Benedict Arnold and Washington's role in that. An excellent choice for anyone wanting to know more about one of the truly great figures of the early years of the United States.
