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.
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.
This book reminds you of the courage and integrity that real leaders are supposed to possess.
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.
