This fast-paced, intriguing biography transforms George Washington from a stone-faced enigma perched atop Mt. Rushmore into an intriguing, approachable historical character. In the hands of award-winning biographer Ron Chernow, Washington's life emerges in sharp focus and reveals a complex persona -- a man who was at once charming and morally upright, yet also politically astute and masterly at concealing deep emotion. Meticulously researched and elegantly written, this work is destined to serve as this generation's standard. -- Maggie McIntire, Books on the Common, Ridgefield, CT
