Reader recommendation: Washington: A Life

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I am currently reading Ron Chernow’s Washington: A Life. Although I consider myself a bit of a history and military buff, I don’t know much at all about Washington or the Revolutionary War. This book is my first step toward remedying that. I’ve heard Chernow’s biography is very readable and reliable.
