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 warm and affectionate biographical portrait of the forty-first U.S. president written and read by the forty-third U.S. president. George W. Bush uses reverential and understated tones as he informs and touches the listener with a most enjoyable audio treat. This narration is of the highest order because it brings to life the sincerity and love of a son for his father. The feelings are quite palpable. While thereÕs nothing surprising or scandalous here, and perhaps no new historic ground, the performance is engaging and exudes charm. ItÕs all here factually: George H. W. BushÕs WWII heroism, political wins and losses, pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and unlikely friendship and humanitarian work in concert with President Clinton. Both the senior and junior Bush demonstrate determination and commitment while maintaining steadfast, self-effacing points of view. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
