In this superb, nuanced portrait we see George Washington hi full both as a man of his time and a man ahead of his time.
"This work of stylish scholarship and genealogical investigation makes Washington an even greater and more human figure than he has seemed before." (Publishers Weekly)
"This gripping story of moral reform adds greatly to our understanding of this most remote of Founders." (The Wall Street Journal)

Excellent handling of one part of Wahington's life
Focuses heavily on Washington and slavery, and to a much less extent on other aspects of his life. If this is your first biography of Washington, you would probably also benefit from a more conventional bio of him. But if you have already read other biographies of Washington, you still need to read this book for a fascinating and balanced look at the complexities of slavery, blacks serving (with distinction) in the Continental Army, and the idealism (or lack thereof) of many of our founding fathers.

All around great book
I really enjoyed this book. The author does a great job of creating a portrait of our first President with intimate and historical details. The author seemed credible and un-bias.
The narrator has great inflection in his voice and did a fanstastic job narrating this book.
