"The best, most comprehensive, and most balanced single-volume biography of Washington ever written." -Gordon S. Wood, "The New York Review of Books"

Celebrated biographer Ron Chernow provides a richly nuanced portrait of the father of our nation. With a breadth and depth matched by no other onevolume life of George Washington, this crisply paced narrative carries the reader through his adventurous early years, his heroic exploits with the Continental Army, his presiding over the Continental Convention, and his magnificent performance as America's first president. In this groundbreaking work, based on massive research, Chernow shatters forever the stereotype of a stolid, unemotional figure and brings to vivid life a dashing, passionate man of fiery opinions and many moods.
