I agree with other reviews, not much new to say - very dry, author talked over my head. Too opinionated when I just wanted facts. A difficult read.

Contains much of what other leadership books will teach you. Weaving these themes into a history (biography?) of Washington makes it that much more enjoyable and impressed even more deeply the importance of his morals, background and ethics on his leadership and brilliance.

Both thorough and relatively short biography. The second half of the book, following the Revolutionary War, is now compelling than coverage of Madison’s early years. Excellent analysis about Madison’s impact on his peer’s, strengths and many weaknesses as president, and real failures as a later on the issue of slavery.
