Presidential Reading: George Washington

I have started a huge undertaking. I will be reading one book about each of the Presidents of the United States. I will be blogging about my reading adventure. I will be keeping all blog post about the book in a single blog post. Updating the post as I go along.

For our first President George Washington I choose.


Amazon Link: Washington: A Life

Amazon Description

Celebrated biographer Ron Chernow provides a richly nuanced portrait of the father of our nation and the first president of the United States. With a breadth and depth matched by no other one volume biography of George Washington, this crisply paced narrative carries the reader through his adventurous early years, his heroic exploits with the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, his presiding over the Constitutional Convention, and his magnificent performance as America’s first president. In this groundbreaking work, based on massive research, Chernow shatters forever the stereotype of George Washington as a stolid, unemotional figure and brings to vivid life a dashing, passionate man of fiery opinions and many moods.

I will be providing updates on twitter and on Goodreads.
