Respectful, thorough, scholarly probing of the forces that shaped George Washington's character, morality, integrity, leadership, and commitment to limited government. Made me ache for men like this to be fostered and in power today....... Julie Bartlett recommended this to me long ago. I see why. Also, a very good example of the profound, nation-changing impact of a boy day-in, day-out time with his father, being proactively shaped by him, as opposed to the boys of today who are shaped by the forces that have most of their time: school and culture.
