George Washington on Leadership creates a picture of the great patriarch undeveloped by previous historians.

We have become so used to the accomplishments of America’s greatest general that we have never seen his amazing three-dimensional capabilities - that is, until now. He built a real army out of a ragtag bunch of former aristocrats and craftsmen, an army that managed to defeat the British. Even more astonishing was his gift, which sometimes seems like a curse, of the office of President of the United States. Since Washington, many have tried - and most failed, to one degree or the other - to live up to his sterling example.

Brookhiser’s book weaves together the triple strands of Washington’s gifts to the nation: military prowess, leadership of our country and being a business titan before “The Donald” was a duckling.

The author has a deft touch when describing historical anecdotes. His attention to detail can only come from exhaustive research. This skill keeps George Washington on Leadership gliding smoothly along while keeping readers intrigued.
