If you want to read the book that formed George Washington's persona you don't want this copy. There is immature and silly commentary throughout the book that has no place in a book like this.
Zolorn
Apparently the editor finds infantile Bush-bashing amusing, but I don't. This book is so embarrassingly bad that I don't dare give it away.

If you could give zero stars, this edition wouldn't even deserve that much. Adam Haslett takes Washington's writings (actually his copying of other's works)and annotates it to bash all things having to do with George W. Bush, Republicans and conservatives. Rather than write ANYTHING of a scholarly nature, all he can manage is to spew leftist drivel about how the right is clueless. BUY ANY OTHER EDITION!!!! I threw this copy away and bought the "Little Books Of Wisdom" Edition.
