Description

George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st President.
 
Forty-three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President.  The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family. In addition, George W. Bush discusses his father’s influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term Presidency.

    I was really excited to read the book but was disappointed because as sincere and thoughtful as the Bush family appears to be they will always disappoint the middle class because they are owned and committed to the very wealthiest people in the world. George W. wrote nothing in his self serving biography of his father's career that changed my mind.
  • GW Wrote a Book? Yeah right

    He'd have to learn to read a book first, one that did not involve Crayons.

    It is an unusual thing to read the words of a former president on a former president, who happens to also be his father. This has humanized two people for me who before were only far-off subjects defined by my version of sound-bite reality. It was also pretty funny. You could tell by tue not-quite professional writing that George W. really wrote this. It wasn't exhausting to read like a real hardcore biography.

    An easy and great read. Learned some new things and came away with a deeper appreciation of George HW Bush. You can feel the love and admiration of the son for his father. I have many of the same emotions for my Dad, who also serves as my inspiration and role model.

    This is a great book about a father who left a legacy because he was left a great legacy. This legacy was a Godly heritage steeped in righteous truth that wasn't always easy but this legacy produced results that changed the world. Thank God for parents like these who are striving to leave a legacy to their kids. Every parent should read this book.

    This book was written from the heart and depicted the great work that George H.W. Bush has done in his life. He was born into a great family and could have taken the easy route to fortune but worked hard and made a life for himself and his family based on integrity and doing what is right. George W. Bush's account of his father's life is accurate and well written. Well done W, you have made your father proud and allowed millions of Americans who admire him to know him better in the process!
