Publisher's Summary

President George W. Bush narrates and 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, discovery of faith, and 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.

    "Surprisingly touching"

    I could never imagine myself being able to listen to a whole Audiobook narrated by President Bush. His voice is surprisingly calming and his words are quite touching. On more than one occasion, I have to admit, my eyes filled with tears. He made very tough decisions and he stood strong by all of them. He clearly states his biggest mistakes and regrets with genuine candor.

    "Decision Points"

    The story of GW Bush will ultimately be recorded in the history books, but this book gives an amazing peek behind the seines peek at an honest man with a tremendous respect for the office he held.

    "Enjoyed this"

    I was a little bored in the first part of the book. You really have work hard to get past his voice. Once you get into chapter 2 this book really becomes interesting and full of wow moments.

    "Worth the listen"

    I liked the format where he takes each major issue of his presidency and reviews it with a candid and honest approach. It covered the facts and an interesting look inside his white house. The only president with a Master's Degree and the one made most fun of shows he is intelligent and not some right wing fanatic bent on ruling the world as the far left constantly warned. Worth the time, and the fact that he reads the book himself just adds a little something to it.

    "Loved it!"

    I too miss W. I believe he was exactly the right man to be in charge during 9/11, not some wishy-washy poll-watcher who is most concerned with personal popularity. This memoir was a great reminder of a fascinating period of time.

    Story
    "One of the best Audible Books I've ever bought!"

    Due to the busy Christmas schedule I have, I downloaded the Abridged copy of "Decision Points" from Audible.com, orated by none other than George W. Bush himself!

    I cannot stop myself from becoming overly emotional while listening to this book. To hear the former President recount what had happen just before, during and after September 11 attack has left me in a total state of despair. WhiIe he was the President of the United States I did not agree with many of his policies, I felt he wasn't conservative enough - I felt he was far too centrist. Upon listening to this marvelous book, it makes me realize that George W. Bush will probably be the very last, truly decent President we will ever have in the White House again. He wasn't too centrist, he was far too sincere, caring, thoughtful and extremely aware of the power of his decisions and mistakes. Mistakes that he takes full credit for. May God bless him and his lovely and gracious First Lady, Laura Bush.

    "Classic "W""

    Brought some long sought explanations for the decisions he made, and the back story behind them. I'll admit, I was a fan of George Bush, but questioned some of his reasoning (still do). But to here his side of it put a lot of it into perspective.

    "Great Book From a Great Man"

    I thought this was fantastic, I learned much more than I thought and I like how he structured the book around major decisions. No matter what you political views are it is a good coming of age story where a man becomes a President.

    "Great Insights"

    Very interesting insights of his presidency. I now have more respect for GDub and find it interesting and disgusting how the media portrays only one side of the story. I don't care which side of the aisle you're on or what you think about our past president, give this book a chance and learn a little bit about your country.
