In an interesting and compelling format, the author has woven a history of the American Revolution with principles of leadership. The leadership maxims used are quotations from various founders. George Washington is most frequently quoted and the author's esteem for this giant in American History is apparent. I found this book enjoyable and will again listen to the book to better glean the timeless gems of wisdom.

A must read for all americans.

I believe this book should be a mandatory read for all high school students, and most certainly all elected officials. The historical perspective and insight into the founding fathers is tremendous. Too many people in this country have never learned of the courage and sacrifice of the founding fathers and it is my opinion that this book is an excellent recourse for that information.
