#1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck presents his unique spin on the life and legacy of Founding Father George Washington in Being George Washington—now available from Encore for a great value!

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 seems 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, heroism, spies, and double-agents.

It’s those flaws that should give us hope for today. Understanding the 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 that can take on the extraordinary challenges that America is once again facing.
