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.

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.

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.

To imagine George Washington back in these times experiencing everything the modern world has to offer and still able to offer a better future for all Americans. Great concept; gripping writing style.

In this book George Washington appears out of the past to run for President in the twenty first century. This book talks a great deal about how our founders saw various issues. For those who are not familiar with the facts, George Washington served two terms, but never ran for the office. He was asked to volunteer for President and stayed for two terms. The principles that concerned our founders when this country was formed are the same principles we debate and fight over today.

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.

A great story that inspires and raises hope that America will, with the help of leaders yet to be identified, find its way back to its roots. I must say I had great hopes after reading this. The use of contemporary personalities for the main characters is great, and if you are a talk radio person you'll have little difficulty connecting the dots. If you are an American history buff, you'll appreciate the depiction of the main character. A very entertaining read.

I loved this book! The Authors did a masterful job in resurrecting the Father of our country and allowing him get the message of all the Founders out, something that our country so badly needs to hear. I would highly recommend it to be put on the reading list not only for high school government classes but for college Political Science classes as well. Patriotism is not dead but the fires need fanning such that as Lincoln said, we might have a "new birth of freedom" so that this natiopn "of the people, by the people and for the people might not perish from the earth."
