President George W. Bush describes the critical decisions of his presidency and personal life.
Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.
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 his historic and controversial decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first decade of the 21st century.
President Bush writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his accomplishments reforming education, treating HIV/AIDS in Africa, and safeguarding the country amid chilling warnings of additional terrorist attacks. He also offers intimate new details on his decision to quit drinking, his discovery of faith, and his relationship with his family.
A groundbreaking new brand of memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on one of the most consequential eras in American history - and the man at the center of events.

YES, A PART OF HISTORY
BILL GATES BIOGRAPHY
I thought it was a little long and a little too detailed in some cases, but I still read it.
I expected this to be a book about President Bush's time in office but it was so much more. This is an indepth look at the how and why of the Presidents decisions. Good listen.
I enjoyed listening to this book and learned quite a bit about the Bush presidency. But, i can't shake the constant feeling that attempts are being made to spin history.
This doesn't apper to be a true autobiography of George W. Bush. It is one of the most uninspiring and boring books I've listened to in a long time. I really didn't learn much except that President Bush has been incredibly lucky to have gotten to where is is today. This book is a dreary, glorified version of how he wants to be remembered. I stopped listening half way through because it was simply a waste of my time.
This was such a waste of time. It was such a whitewashing of history. Hours of rewriting actual facts and trying to polish a legacy stained with bull crap. This man is such a delusional idiot I am still amazed America fell for this man twice. Read it only to watch a man desperate to justify his actions which were taken just to try and work out his daddy issues.
Counselor with eclectic taste, I enjoy all types of fiction, dark, strange and twisted things, humor and explicitly.
BORING...I am sorry I don't know what I was expecting but what I got was a whole lot of blah, blah, blah. Not worth the $ or time.
The narrator actually sounded like the President. I was really jazzed to get this audiobook. I finally plowed through to the end--- kicking and screaming at myself at how disappointed I was. Believe it or not Secretary Rumsfeld's book actually was scarily similar. I respect both of these gentlemen but they should stick to politics and leave the writing to pros.
If gutter language is good, then this book is good. Disappointing that Mr. Bush could not tell his story without stooping so low.
