The Real George Washington: The True Story of America s Most Indispensable Man.
"There is properly no history, only biography," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. If that is true of the general run of mankind, it is particularly true of George Washington. The story of his life is the story of the founding of America. His was the dominant personality in three of the most critical events in that founding: the Revolutionary War, the Constitutional Convention, and the first national administration. Had he not served as America's leader in those three events, all would likely have failed -- and America, as we know it today, would not exist.
Why, after two centuries, does George Washington remain one of the most beloved figures in our history? The Real George Washington answers that question by giving us a close look at this man who became the father of our country and the first American President. But rather than focus on the interpretations of historians, much of his exciting story is told in his own words. The second part of this 928-page book brings together the most important and insightful passages from Washington's writings, conveniently arranged by subject.
Published by the National Center for Constitutional Studies, a nonprofit educational foundation dedicated to restoring Constitutional principles in the tradition of America's Founding Fathers.
"The National Center for Constitutional Studies...is doing a fine public service in educating Americans about the principles of the Constitution." -- Ronald Reagan, President of the United States

Mr Beck introduced this book THE REAL GEORGE WASHINGTON on his show a couple months ago as well as a couple other history pieces of our founding fathers.
It sounded like a good summer read and am finding it to be a very good summer read. In these times of "Change" we need to know what we are changing from and
changing to. While what we are changing to is open to debate, this is a good
start to where we came from.
The book itself is well written, easy to read, well researched and documented,
with ledgable print and good illustrations. I have found no political leanings,
right or left. Just a clear concise portrait of the man and his times and in doing so a true picture of where we came from.
The books layout is the usual table of contents, Preface, Acknowledgements, followed by 613 pages of narrative and illastration, then 2 appendix - Personal views of Washington Thomas Jefferson and John Bernard. from there on is
part II - Timeless treasures of George Washington. then Notes and selected Bibliograph. The Real Thomas Jefferson and the Real Benjamin Franklin are laid
out in a symalar fashion and can easily be used as a reference guide as well as
a good read. The Real George Washington (American Classic Series)The Real Thomas Jefferson (American Classic Series)The Real Benjamin Franklin (American Classic Series)
thank you, I hope this is of some benefit. GV
It's a large volume, over 900 pgs. (The last 300pgs or so are texts and excerpts written by Washington himself) but the book isn't unwieldy. It's thick, but not the dictionary-size I thought it would be, it's about 8 x5 inches, a perfect size for easy reading. The text is on the large side and there are paintings, maps and letters scattered throughout. It ended up being a very quick read.
If you want to get a wonderful picture of this truely excellent human being, George Washington, you must get this book. I have not been very interested in the Founders as much as right now, for very obvious reasons. This book is perfect for these times. I see that it is now backordered. Buy it, it's worth the wait.
Get the Ben Franlin and Thomas Jefferson editions in the series, too. You will not be dissappointed. Very, very good reading and very, very timely.
