  1. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to read 1776 yet, but I have read many other books on the American Revolution and the key players.

    While he was ambitious, I wouldn’t characterize Washington as pretentious, and he did have the virtue of “rethinking his strategy” as you put it.

    Far too many people who claim they are our leaders do not, to our detriment. I believe it was Albert Einstein who said that repetition of the same behavior expecting different results is insane.

  2. I’ve read Harry Potter. I don’t think I’ve read any of the others on any of the 3 lists, although I’ve been trying to get Freakonomics from the local library. Unfortunately, at AP Govt. and Economics teacher at the local high school, a very good teacher BTW, has “strongly encouraged” her students to read it, so it’s been continuously since August. I have, however, read 4 of the Jack Aubrey series of books by Patrick O’Brian in the past month; I just decided it was time to fill in the gaps of what I’d read in that series.
