Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue

Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue by David J. Bobb is a book that features some of the most popular historical figures with an emphasis on how they were guided by the virtue of humility. The book itself is really interesting as it gives another layer to some of the figures that we remember from history class - it really adds another dimension to the person that we know from a historical standpoint and makes the human connection more real. 

Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue showcases the lives and decisions of people like Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Abagail Adams. These names are associated with some of the most critical and influential times in American history, and Bobb makes the connection between each person and their amazing sense of humility. Bobb also makes a serious case for why humility is what is missing from modern day America, and why we must return to our humble roots in order to rally America. 

Dr. Bobb discusses the importance of humility in some of the most influential Americans, and how it affected their legacy in history, as well as affected history itself. I think that this book would make a great gift for any leader or history lover in your life, as it really offers an in-depth look at the true virtue of humility.I would give this book a 5/5. I am definitely going to be keeping this book on my bookshelf for future reading and reference.
