I always knew that George Washington was a great man, who lead the county through vary hard times, I did Not know, however, what a great speaker he was, In this book, you will see the greatness of his mind, and his speech patterns, It is no wonder he is so admired to quote one of my favorite quotations "It is better to offer no excuse, than a bad one" This book is a must read for anyone interested in one of the great founding Fathers

We often forget that Washington was a man of many words, but he used them ONLY when they were needed. It is no wonder he was often called upon to settle disputes and to lift morale. Reading this boosted my morale. Short, yes, because Washington had so much more to say, but those words may very well be lost. A great read!
