Washington: A Life - Ron Chernow - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Washington: A Life

Great biography of America's first president.

My favorite George Washington quote from the book:

"Errors, once discovered, are more than half amended."

Questions to ponder while reading Washington: A Life

What makes a war hero?

Can a good man act badly?

My thoughts about Washington: A Life

George is one of my heroes.

I love the "Rules of Civility".

Sometimes, all it takes is doing your best.
