President George W Bush has been my favorite president in my adulthood. I don't really remember the rest of them from the 80s and early 90s. I didn't really care back then. After reading this book he is still my favorite thus far.
This book really helps you understand what happens behind the scenes in the White House. How did he come to the decisions he did on certain topics? The president has a lot more things to decide than we think he does. It was good to know that he talked to experts in different fields and got their opinion and thoughts on certain subjects. He even would talk to his wife for her perspective on certain things. President Bush wanted to be educated before he made a final decision.
The media always made Bush out to be someone who he obviously is not. He's a smart, educated man who just wanted the best for his country.
"That is the nature of the presidency. Perceptions are shaped by the clarity of hindsight. In the moment of decision, you don't have that advantage." -G. Bush
A great quote that explains a lot. I recommend this book to everyone who is curious about the President and how things were for him in office. It doesn't matter what party you're a part of. This book will help you understand why he did what he did.
Head over to Amazon.com and take a look inside the book.
