You could spend the next year listening to nothing but audiobooks about George Washington. Biographer David O. Stewart purports to focus on Washington's political development, but, in fact, his biography includes a well-researched birth-to-death reconstruction of Washington's life. It's a listening experience that touches directly on our own concerns about political leadership. Narrator Arthur Morey's narration is immaculate. In particular, his steady pacing is sensitive to the many imponderables in Washington's biography; for instance, his relationship with Martha Custis Washington, his wife. Most compelling are Washington's principled nonpartisanship and his sense of himself as an apolitical figure. From the Virginia House of Burgesses, through the war, executive office, and into retirement, Washington's story--many times told--seems fresh and highly relevant in Morey's flawless presentation.
