Not the same old biography

If you could sum up The Education of George Washington in three words, what would they be?

This biography of George Washington is not a mere telling of his life story. It explains how he became the George Washington we all know. Rather than boring the listener with unimportant facts about his life, the book explains what was behind the important decisions in his life and ultimately the important decisions for our country. The narrator keeps the story interesting. I have listened to many biography audiobooks, and the majority of the narrators almost put me to sleep. Anyone interested in history would really enjoy this.
