  • Great book

  • I checked it out from the library, I read 1/2 of it and just ordered it "one click" from Amazon.com!!!! I am a 32 year old women, have read every single book that the Bush Family has written (Bush SR's Book, George W's Book, the mother's book that she wrote... I have been to George W. Bush Sr's Library at Texas A&M, I collect every single article, magazine, political button, t-shirt of the Bush Family...and can't tell you how great it was to read this book!!!!!! The book personalizes and puts together all the details in a friendly "fun to read fashion," even thought the book is probably geared to 12 year old reading level, its a great book to buy for ANYONE.... There are so many details that I knew about the Bush Family, the author does a wonderful job of just making the book entertaining... After my personal extensive reasearch, curiousity, admiration of the Bush family... I just can't tell you how well the author even tells you things you did not quite know... Wonderful Wonderful book for any Bush Family (George W.) Fan to read... Highly highly recommend.... I just wish I knew people I could buy the book for... The cover is beautiful although it is a paperback... Just a fabulous book....

  • I loved this book. I learned so much from it and I encourage others to read it. If you like to learn about how presidents got elected, or how they became governor, read this book. I encourage you!

  • He is so very much more interesting now that he is out of office. But, the book was an eye opener.

  • This book showed me a whole different side to our president. I was very shocked to hear some of the stories of his college days and some of his outrageous acts even after he graduated. His entrance into politics was not always an assured one, as he seemed to have more interests in enjoying his youth. The author seems to gloss over some things that have a potential to be more damaging to his image than they already are. The story of how he crashed his car into the garage after his wife criticized one of his speeches was one such example. I had also expected him to be more successful at business than he is said to be. Surprisingly, the Bush family has had their share of persecution while living in Texas. In Texas they were not seen as true "Texans" and in the schools George W. attended his views were opposite of a majority of the student population. Given his private school training and Ivy League preparation, it really makes the office of president seem only attainable by those with money. I was disappointed that there wasn't more information on his accomplishments as a Texas governor but I was pleasantly surprised to find his State of the Union address in entirety at the back of the book. The litigation details of the 2000 election were helpful in understanding why the selection for our new president had taken so long. Overall, I would recommend this book to any young reader looking for a biography to read, however, I would warn them that they may have a less respectful opinion of our president after their reading.

  • If you are looking for a book that you can use for your kids' social studies extra credit and your own cocktail party banter, this is the easy read you need. Want to be current on all the little Presidential family tidbits without spending a lot of time plowing through the family history and heavy details? I read A Charge to Keep and some of the other Bush Family tomes, but I really enjoyed this one and my 7th grader grabbed some quick end of quarter extra points toward her "A" by learning about our current Prez.

  • I really enjoyed the book. It tells of President Bush's whole life. I liked the photos of his childhood. When he was three he had his picture taken on a horse. I am a fourth grade student and I love to read. This was a fun book. I did a book report on it. Get it!

  • The attacks of September 11th changed America ! President Bush declared war on terrorism and the advance of human freedom the priorities of his Administration. The United States military has liberated the people of Iraq from the brutal regime. Thousands of terrorists have been captured and operations have been stopped. In the President's words, "our Nation - this generation - will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail."
