George Washington may have been America’s greatest leader. He was physically imposing, brave, and intellectually equal to any of the nation’s founders; today’s CEOs would do well to emulate his example. Joseph Ellis revisits the myths and contradictions of Washington’s epochal career, presenting a compassionate, strong-willed visionary capable of remorseless personal and military discipline. Nelson Runger’s reading is measured and reassuring; his delivery has the elegance and cadence of a presidential parade. His sonorous baritone is displayed to great advantage in this high-resolution production. The sonic clarity, attention to detail, and intuitive logic of the presentation make for a compelling experience.
