4.0 out of 5 stars An Honest Political Autobiography, 30 Sep 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Decision Points (Kindle Edition)
I must admit to being a compulsive reader of Political Biographies, and found this to be one of the better ones. Of course this one includes many attempts to set the record strait, and of course he looks at himself in a positive manner, but wouldn't you? There are moments where he feels triumphant, such as the excellent passage on his Thanksgiving trip to Iraq in 2003, and others, such as when he spoke about social security,and Hurricane Katrina, where you can feel his pain with him, as he recounts what he should have done. I must confess to skipping the chapter on the Financial Crisis, because after a few pages it started to become a bit wonkish, but this highlights how the majority of the rest of the book was actually written by him, and therefore feels genuine and heartfelt.

I have never really felt a close connection to Bush, but after reading this book, I agree that he was given a hard time for maybe not being the smartest guy around, and making a few verbal gaffes, but that overall his presidency was a success. Seven years of economic growth, the toppling of two Middle Eastern dictatorships, and being able to step out of his father's shadow,and be President in his own right. I respect him for this, and I imagine that if you read this, you will get a new perspective on both Bush and a man, and a decision maker, as opposed to the one fed to you by the liberal media.
