Everyone should read/listen to this book. This strikes me as an honest, forthright description of the issues, challenges and responses made by the Bush Administration to the fantastic challenges that the President faced. This is also a good analysis of how the government actually runs, makes decisions, and leads. Anyone can be elected President, but not everyone can lead this country. Bush tells you honestly how he saw the position and how he approached his challenges. This is an excellent work.
Clearly the descriptions concerning the decision making about the responses to 9/11 were fascinating since we lived though the events and they are so fresh in our minds.
This is a nice listen.
The description of how Bush was actually in charge of everything, and how he demanded that everyone threat the oval office with respect at all times.
Listen to this, Cheney's, and Rumsfeld's books and you will have a very clear view of how America makes decision, how the bureaucracy works, the extent and limitations of American power.
