"This I Believe"

It is a compilation of the personal philosophies of many people from all different backgrounds.

taken from the inside cover:
"It's about the idea that men and women will live happier and richer lives if they deliberately decide what they want from life--what they want in material things and the relative importance of moral and spiritual things."

I don't know if I would say that 1776 influenced me a great deal but it was a fantastic book. McCullough writes history better than anyone else I have read.

If you want another great read on George Washington, read "The Grand Idea" by Joel Achenbach. Though on the surface it is a book about the Potomac, It covers part of Washington's life barely covered in other books and gives further insight into a truly remarkable man.

I've read books on Washington (and my other favorite US historical figure, Lincoln), but that book puts you on the battle field amongst the troops like no other. Reading along with the inserts makes it that much better.

There are two books you should check out. One is called America At War In Color. The other is called Germany At War In Color. They are primarily pictorial books, but WOW! There are some really great photos in those books. My grandfather has a book his sister just found and gave to him. I'm going to read it when he's done. It was given to him for Christmas in 1943. It's about all the airplanes of the world. It shows "spy photos" of the ME-109s and the Japanese planes. Talk about eerie.
