About the Author:

James Thomas Flexner is a National Book Award Laureate; recipient of a special Pulitzer Prize Citation; winner of the Society of American Historians' Parkman Prize, the gold medal of the American Academy of Arts and Letters for "Eminence in Biography."

James Thomas Flexner has won a Special Pulitzer Prize Citation, a National Book Award, and a Christopher's Award for his four-volume biography, Washignton: An Indispensable Man. A foremost man of letters, Flexner has written with equal distinction in the fields of American history, biography and art.

Review:

“Flexner’s great achievement is that he has written a life that even the most rabid Jeffersonian can applaud. Admiring and critical at the same time, Flexner scrutinizes his subject’s early years to arrive at a daring but convincing portrait. . . . Each generation requires its own biographies of history’s major figures, but for the time being it is hard to see how Flexner’s Hamilton could be improved.” (―Newsweek)

"Every welcome to a volume which is fully up to the standard of literary elegance, psychological penetration, and historical scholarship that Mr. Flexner’s massive life of George Washington has led everyone to expect.” (―The Economist)

“This is an admirable book, thoroughly researched, and nicely written. . . . Highly recommended for general collections.” (―Library Journal)
