Ron Chernow on George Washington

Friday, November 26, 2010

Although George Washington inspires reverence, he remains lifeless and one-dimensional for many Americans. National Book Award winner Ron Chernow breaks the stereotype of Washington and paints a portrait of him as a canny political genius who knew how to inspire people in Washington: A Life; a groundbreaking work based on massive research.

JILL from Freeport IL

FYI, I live in the house that William Avery Rockefeller lived in Freeport IL. My Dad and myself rehabed the house. It was not fit to live in. It is beautiful now. I have been reading "Titan" to get more information of my house. Very interesting life "Big Bill" lived. Thanks!
