VINE VOICETOP 1000 REVIEWERon 29 September 2011
I have always felt history will be kinder on George W Bush's presidency than the present commentators. He is man who had a good record as Governor of Texas and was president for 2 terms in very difficult times for ther USA. This book picks out the main challenges during his presidency and explains why he did what he did. You may not agree with him but he clearly thought a lot about his decisions and was prepared to make them. He comes across as someone who cares, someone who is decisive, someone who wanted to make a difference, someone with integrity and someone who is ordinary (as opposed to being arrogant). He lists his failures and regrets as well as his successes. He writes in an easy to read style which demosntrates a clarity of thought. You may not agree with him or with what he did but this book explains why he did what he did. It might alter your view of him. Political autobiographies can often be self serving (Major, Blair, Clinton), hard to follow and boring. This book is none of those. A thoroughly well written book and a very entertaining and informative read. Certainly one of the best books of its type in recent times. Plenty of ammunition in this book for debate on contraversial subjects such as torture, the middle east etc. Highly recommended.
