Recently dropped in to our Fall 2014 list, George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States and author of the bestselling memoir, Decision Points, has written a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st President. The audiobook edition will offer an even more intimate account thanks to George W. Bush’s narration.
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 voice. A unique and intimate biography, this audiobook 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. It 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.
