Synopsis: George Washington a man of honor, bravery and leadership. He is known as America’s first President, a great general, and a humble gentleman, but how did he become this man of stature?

The Education of George Washington answers this question with a new discovery about his past and the surprising book that shaped him. Who better to unearth them than George Washington’s great-nephew, Austin Washington?

Most Washington fans have heard of The Rules of Civility” and learned that this guided our first President. But that’s not the book that truly made George Washington who he was. In The Education of George Washington, Austin Washington reveals the secret that he discovered about Washington’s past that explains his true model for conduct, honor, and leadership an example that we could all use.

The Education of George Washington also includes a complete facsimile of the forgotten book that changed George Washington's life.

From the Inside Flap:
"This lively, articulate, and humorous reflection on George Washington's personality has some unexpected twists and turns, and the reader flips each page with a little uncertainty about where the book is heading, which is a large part of the fun. Austin Washington, with the help of the George Washington Papers project at Mount Vernon, has done something brand new. He has discovered through a document in George Washington's own hand, overlooked by historians for two centuries, exactly how George Washington turned himself from a relatively poor boy with limited prospects into the heroic leader he became."
James C. Rees, president of Mount Vernon, 1994 2012

"George Washington 'meets' Frederick, Duke of Schonberg, and finds a model for his life. This delightful and insightful book is a sometimes jocular approach to the life of Washington (the author's great ... great-uncle) ... The Education of George Washington is a witty, light-hearted, playful, even irreverent telling of the story. It is part theater and part history a book that will reward readers in today’s fast-paced and attention-deficit world. It’s a very new take on a very old tale."
Dr. Theodore Crackel, author of Mr. Jefferson's Army and West Point: A Bicentennial History; editor-in-chief emeritus, the Papers of George Washington

"A genuinely readable history and a different, thought-provoking perspective. Austin Washington has a particularly good insight into what his grand-uncle may have been thinking."
Dean Malissa, George Washington reenactor at Mount Vernon

"At last, after more than two hundred years, the first documented clue to the formation of the youthful George Washington’s character as a leader."
Kerry Miller, president, National Society of Washington Family Descendants
