Business & Finance • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Starting a new business? Did you ever stop to think that George Washington was a "Founding CEO," who demonstrated his start-up skills as chief of the young nation's army and as its first president? Richard Brookhiser makes the case, using examples from Washington's life to show the leadership skills he exemplified and his outlook on life, a combination of optimism and keen knowledge of human nature. Patrick Lawlor's narration has an energetic booster tone meant to encourage stressed businesspeople. His tone quickly establishes Brookhiser's book as a business volume rather than a standard history. While a lot has changed since Washington's time, Brookhiser ably relates the problems faced by the Father of our Country to the challenges of modern business.
