One of the great blessings of living in America is the availability of knowledge. At the finger tips of every American is a vast array of learning opportunities and I'm not referring to youtube. The learning opportunity that I am talking about is reading.
John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail and stated "I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy." The same applies to us today. We must make education a priority in our lives. We should be preparing for the future by learning from the past. We need to have an understanding and knowledge of our government if we are to preserve it. We need to see the sacrifice of those who went before us to fully understand the blessings we enjoy today.
Alexander Hamilton stated, "Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have is this; when I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought."
We need to be continually learning. This is why we have decided to start The List. The List is a continually growing compilation of book reviews. The reviews will be submitted by several different readers and cover several different topics. In creating this list we hope to provide our readers with a selection of great books that are informational, entertaining, and enlightening.
