Publisher's Summary

Former president George Bush has no plans to write his autobiography, so this collection of letters, diary entries, and memos, plus his commentary, fills that void. The volume includes letters from Bush to his parents during World War II, a love letter to wife Barbara, letters to his children (written just before Richard Nixon's resignation and at the beginning of Desert Storm), and many more. They offer insights into Bush's career, from the Navy to the oil business, and his political life: two terms in Congress, an ambassadorship to the U.N., his tenure with the Central Intelligence Agency, the vice presidency, the presidency, and the post-presidency. As the Bushes continue to emerge as a major political family, this portrait of its unassuming patriarch is timely and important, offering an intimate look at one of America's most private public figures.

    "It's the best"

    I absolutely loved this audiobook. It showed the real George Bush ... the kind, moral, human guy who was our president for four short years. I laughed at his innocence in his first letters and cried when his little Robin died. I laughed again at the end, hearing about his life as an average guy, gousing at the grandkids for leaving the freezer door ajar and melting all the ice cream. I came away with a new understanding and deeper respect for him. After listening to the audiobook, I had to go to the book store and buy the book just to have it in my library. I would recommend it to anybody.

    "Nice Guy"

    Nice way to tell a nice story about a nice guy. President Bush may be one of the most underrated presidents and best one term presidents of all time, but his qualifications for his political beginnings and 43s seem questionable.
