George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st President.
Forty-three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President. The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family. In addition, George W. Bush discusses his father’s influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term Presidency.
"The book [...] is such a joy to read. The examination of the senior Bush's character is unique and valuable." (Fred Barnes The Wall Street Journal)
"A helluva good read. All that's endearing about the Bush family comes bursting forth in this bouillabaisse of history, reminiscence and political folk wisdom." (Douglas Brinkley Financial Times)
"A historic first in the canon of US political literature." (Devika Bhat The Times)
