My fault, I should have read the reviews before I bought it. Great idea and concept but it turned into a right wing conservative blabbering, and I am a republican.

BTW, to the authors please find me where GW uses the name Jesus anywhere in his writings. Also figure out how wireless communications work befroe explaining them to George.

My husband recommended this book after hearing the authors speak on the radio. He thought it would be a good fit as I'm a high school history teacher with an Alexander Hamilton obsession. My one big complaint: not enough Alexander Hamilton. That being said, it was an interesting book. The book's premise of bringing back the Founding Fathers to handle the problems of today was intriguing. It wasn't quite what I expected as I anticipated the REAL Founding Fathers coming back from the grave.

This was a pretty quick read. It started rather slow, but picked up when you meet GW. I had a hard time reading the dialogue between the characters. This could be because I've been reading dense biographies and am no longer used to fiction. Regardless, much of the early dialogue felt artificial and difficult to digest. I'm also not overly conservative, so some of the political discussions were too idealistic for my taste.

Overall, I'm glad a read the book. The concept of bringing back the Founding Fathers did generate some lesson ideas that I might be able to use with my students.

I found this book very interesting at first, although not super-well written. But when it turned into a Tea Party tract, it turned me off. Maybe it was different by the end, but I was long gone by that point.

Intriguing concept of what our Founding Father would do to build a platform to put our country back on a constitutional footing if he were to come back to life today and run for POTUS. Far fetched? Maybe. But for those who believe that the only path to restoring America's greatness must begin with a President who will dutifully carryout his oath of office and champion constitutional rule then this book is for you.

This trip into our founding documents applied is a imperative for any and all who recognize a need to up-date their knowledge of the creation of our proven government system. Facing today's challenges of socialism, our inner strenght of conviction needs this most excellent reminder of our historical strengths!

The New Founders is an innovative approach to bring the ideas of the Founding Fathers to bear on the political world of 2012 America. The plot revolves around "Divine Providence" permitting George Washington to leave the grave and mount a modern campaign for the White House against President Obama. Washington reemerges in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, and meets a group of individuals who "embody" the beliefs of Founders such as John Adams, Sam Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. It is never made explicitly clear whether they are the Founders reincarnated OR echoes of the Founders. The implication is that they are the reincarnated Founders.

The strength of the book is the way in which the ideas of the Founders are brought to bear on 2012 problems. At one point during an interview, George Washington (using an assumed identity is asked how the ideas of the 18th century are relevant to the 21st. He responds that a good idea is timeless.

I heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the Founders and their thinking. I have begun to recommend this to my students as a way to heighten their study of the Founders.

Although I am not a huge fan of American history, this book captured my attention and made me want to learn more about our country and its founding fathers. I definitely learned more about our country's history than I did in a classroom. The characters were well developed and the book was a fun read. I've never read a book written by two authors who truly had one voice. As for those who criticized the ending, I completely disagree. There were twists and turns and an unexpected ending. The authors left you wanting to read more and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book. I'd love to see how this would turn out in a movie.
