Just Finished – The Grand Idea by Joel Achenbach

Book summarizes and narrates (very well) the relationship between the Potomac River and George Washington. Not a classic, and clearly not intended to be, very informative and enjoyable walk down US History lane. Of particular intrigue was the way Achenbach explored the commercial motivations of the Founders and the new nation as a whole.
