or, Remember That Time George Washington Wrote a Book?
The first American president was a man of great foresight, a man who spoke and acted cautiously in all things, and a man who knew how to read and write (even if he wasn't as good at it as some of his contemporaries).
In reality, George Washington was the original Leroy Jethro Gibbs. George (we're on a first name basis) took the time to write a book detailing all the Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company & Conversation. I use these 110 rules as the guidepoints for my life, and I hope you will, too.
