    In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for numerous historic and controversial decisions.

    "A Limlted but necessary memoir"
    Overall

    The book is a limited memoir focusing on key decisions that President Bush made while in the White House. It is not a full memoir or complete history of his presidency or how he got there. I had for more day to day, behind the scenes insight. While I did not fully get what I was looking for, the book has its merits.

    For insight into specific decision points (middle east peace, 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, financial crisis, etc.) it is refreshing to get some insight from the central figure in those events. For this I found the book intriguing. A fine example of this is the handling of the Katrina aftermath. I learned some things from the book that were not readily made known by the media.

    Ultimately, I believe that historians will be kinder to President's Bush's presidency than the popular media was in 2009. I believe he will have his renaissance, just as Truman, Nixon and Reagan did. This book is the first salvo to that end.
