Format: Hardcover
This book was a great, easy read. Nothing is off limits in this biography of Washington that explores everything from his love life to the challenges of his presidency. The authors are even sarcastic and funny at times. I also like that half the book is full of documents. I found myself reading the book and when i wanted more information, flipping to the back of the chapter and looking at the documents which included washington's list of slaves, a love letter he wrote to a girlfirend in addition to the usual documents one might suspect like his inaugural address. Everything was great about this except the price. I found it in a local library to read for free but I dont think I would shell out that much for a book.
