President George W. Bush 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.

listened to a large part of this book on another freind's ipod. did not care for Prez Bush before but have found new respect for this man... will be purchasing this for myself on next payday. as to the preview that APPLE put up... His alcohol problems.... Come on apple, try to at least be neutral.. talk about a lack of class......
An amazing insight into an amazing man..... And the fact that it is narrated by Bush makes a personal look into his mind even more so.
Do we miss him yet? YES WE DO
This man was a class act. I miss having a president who put our country before his ego and his popularity. Pres. Bush kept this country safe, which is what we elected him to do. He never lowered himself to pointing fingers, nor did he ever speak down about Presidents before of after him - even when he had every right to. Shame on the people who so quickly turned against him without any facts not any faith in him. These are the same people who rolled out the red carpet for an administration that doesn't hide that they are running the White House's image into that of Frat house from the movie "Animal House".
I hope Mr Bush knows that he hasn't lost support - Like him, we have enough class to let the loud angry people just be loud and angry..... We are still here!
A must read/hear especially to his critics who faithfully follow whatever the media tells them to believe!
