From the Inside Flap

This is the best-selling classic regularly featured by Glenn Beck to Fox TV viewers!

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

This book was well written.. and it is very easy to read... even for kids. George Washington was a man of character. He is a great example to follow. This book will help you understand why he did what he did... why he refused to be King George... why he got involved in the revolutionary war. And after reading this book, you will gain a tremendous love and respect for the founding father of our country. And you will understand why they called him "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen".

I recently took this book with me to read on a trip to South Africa. The book is outstanding in every way. I will recommend this book to every reader that I know. Washington was one of the great men of U.S. and world history. The book does a great job of bringing George Washington to life for the reader.

The authors have gone to great effort to include and document quotations from original documents including personal communications. In a very readable style, they cover Washington's life, the historical events taking place during his life and his role in them. I found it to be enjoyable reading as well as an excellent research source.

This book is one of the greatest worthwhile books I have ever read. Leaning about the real George Washington brought tears to my eyes in several of the chapters. How much this man was respected and how much he was loved by the people of this country and how much of his personal life he gave to his country is a standard that none of our recent presidents could even come close to. Should be a required reading for every highschool student.

I highly recommend this book about the life and times of George Washington. The book is detailed (drawing upon historical documents) and gives a clear picture of his entire life. A rather long book. But, well worth the time to read. By reading this book one can easily see how Washington's personal code of ethics and value system started and matured.

The Real George Washington (American Classic Series)
This book should be required reading in every high school. It should replace history text books about the American Revolution. I was very disappointed that the public library did not have one single copy. So much is in this book that connects to what we are or need to be today.

I just got done with this book. WOW - I couldn't leave it alone. This book consumed my thoughts and drew me in to the life of an unappreciated (in these times) GREAT MAN. George was HERO in every way. Without him, our country would not BE. This coming Washington's Birthday and every one from now on will have new meaning for me. My hat goes off to one of America's Best Men. This book is a story that should be required reading for every child in school. Well written and easy to absorb. Highly Recommended.

This book is experiencing a rebirth among readers these days. I think that our growing concerns about America's current political and economic course are motivating many of us to learn more about our country's roots. And George is a great place to start.

The last I heard much about George Washington was in elementary school. I remember the cherry tree story, but my knowledge of this gentleman was pretty sketchy beyond that. I had the impression that he was a good and honorable man, but again, I had few specifics.

This book took care of that. This amazing man makes all of our contemporary Presidents pale in comparison. His interests were in strengthening our country and helping it to grow, PERIOD. He lead our country honorably and with little self-interest, or so it seems.

This book should be required reading for every US Presidential candidate.
