Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.

This is a great book

A loving son writing about his father - you forget about the roles each played on the global stage of life.

Having lived through most of the events described in the book it was an honor to have the family based insight of how these historical events were addressed in the fabric of a publicly dedicated family.

43s writing style is down home and factual sharing the good and bad perspectives of the events. He did not dodge the negative events and clearly acknowledged the impact.

I would recommend this book highly to anyone who needs to understand what a great man did to serve his country greatly.


Unique and Entertaining

It is an unusual thing to read the words of a former president on a former president, who happens to also be his father. This has humanized two people for me who before were only far-off subjects defined by my version of sound-bite reality. It was also pretty funny. You could tell by tue not-quite professional writing that George W. really wrote this. It wasn't exhausting to read like a real hardcore biography.

Lack firing ,


I was really excited to read the book but was disappointed because as sincere and thoughtful as the Bush family appears to be they will always disappoint the middle class because they are owned and committed to the very wealthiest people in the world. George W. wrote nothing in his self serving biography of his father's career that changed my mind.
