This author is engaging.

The pace is quick and only hits on major points still described very well. I was finished with the book and now I want to learn more about Washington, not Washington DC man. lol

George Washington.

This book indeed well written and quite interesting for American citizen especially. I wish it were longer and more detailed. I love the author for a log time and my digital library is almost full of its books.

I recommend this book highly.

For those who are looking to gain a good understanding of Washington’s life, this audible is an excellent resource. It provides adequate detail to give you a firm, basic understanding. It is not wordy or overly academic.

Well presented.....

This biography does a great job of touching on the high points o Washington's life but it doesn't really get to the guts of it. I guess I should have picked one of the longer, more in depth biographies to learn more about our first President as I was craving more insight into his views and policies.

An Interesting audible.

The book makes him come alive. Seeing him as real person makes him seem like a real hero. A good history of our founders with true insight of a future America.

Easy read, Learn a few facts

This book does have some details of the live of George Washington that I was not aware of prior to reading this book, so overall, I was pleased. The book is poorly edited, however. Unfortunately, it was not uncommon to see a word that didn't fit into the meaning of the sentence, but it was easy enough to figure out what the word should have been. This was a distraction, though.

Just reminded me of few hidden points.

Not great as well as not terrible one. I learned a few new tidbits about this great man and how he lived his life.
