Being George Washington Glenn Beck Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
The #1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host offers a unique spin on the life and legacy of founding father George Washington.
IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW GEORGE WASHINGTON, THINK AGAIN.
This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever.
His life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Spies and double-agents. And while we celebrate his great heroism and character, we discover he was also a flawed man. It’s those flaws that should give us hope for today. Understanding the very human way he turned himself from an uneducated farmer into the Indispensable (yet imperfect) Man is the only way to build a new generation of George Washingtons who can take on the extraordinary challenges that America is once again facing.

User reviews about this book
lacks merit to teach history
By Common Sense American
Cosnidering this authors quickness to embrace historical revision at the drop of a hat out of politcal and ideolgical convience. I find this book lacking in merit and accuarcy.
Looking at in the store confirms it. No suprise it made it's way into book store bargin bins so quickly
This garbage is written for toddlers -- no words longer than 7 letters.
This should be required reading!
Every American should read this book, especially young people. Glenn Beck has managed to convey our history in a gripping and easy style. His telling of our story through the life of "The Father of Our Country" is brilliant. Young people need to understand the importance of integrity, perseverance, humility, reverence, virtue, courage, respect, and honor in the character of a person. George Washington embodied all of these traits and it is plain to see that this was the basis of his success and ultimately the success of the United States of America. If every American was striving to be George Washington, we definitely would not be in the mess we are in now. The pendulum has swung far enough and it is time for it to swing back. I know as well as Glenn and as well as George Washington that we need to start this fight on our knees. I will continually pray that America will return to the virtues that made us great. I am not only ready to be George Washington, but I am ready to lead others who are ready to take on this challenge. Bravo Glenn, well done!
Pass on this book
Not well written and the subject matter is very questionable. Beck takes vague suspensions and makes them fact.
Keep up the good work. You folks make history come alive. This book was an easy read for my kids as well. How about the next one on Mr. Jefferson?
Great story telling
It make history alive! Love it! It remind me of "Romance of Three Kingdom". That is how I fall in love with history.
No matter is a true or not, it pull you in and you can't stop reading it. It make want search for more. Great story telling. Recommend it. It will worth every penny you spend on it.
Love this book!
I never really got into history books but this book is so well written, I couldn't put it down.
An Absolute Must Read!!!
Outstanding! This novel really brings Washington, and his struggles, to life. Anyone who reads, or listens to, this book will identify with one of our greatest Founding Fathers. A compelling read; I couldn't put it down. In fact, I gifted a dozen to friends and family over the "holidays" this year. Thanks Glenn!
This book is just awful. Poorly written and not informative. Complete waste of time
By Obama Soros
Excellent book and a lot of fun to read! As most history books are boring, Glenn has pulled off a winner by making this historically based book entertaining and inspiring. To the Soros paid basement rats posting negatives reviews, come out of your Moms cellar and smell the fresh air...and actually read the book. The sun will do you wonders ;-)
