Upon leaving office I though I knew everything about Bush. I had my mind made up that he was a mediocre president that made a lot of deicsions that weren't good for America. Upon reading this book, and getting an indepth look at the man and his approach to decision making, life and defending our country, I have to say I have a whole new perspective of the man. After reading this, I fully understand that every decision he made was what he honestly felt was best for the country, even keeping Dick Cheney as Veep, and honestly knowing some inside details, I probably would have made all of these decisions just like he did. After reading this, I honestly hope history will take a kinder view of him, because I sure as heck am.

As for mechanics, it was a smooth read. It was researched and written well. The approach was thoroughly original for a presidential account and it wasn't a book where I was left wondering if this guy was really so full of himself. Decision points was classy, he didn't Obama bash, or Clinton bash, or place blame for anyone else. It was inspirational, stimulating, and absorbing; I wanted to read the next page, then just one more page, and on until the book was done.... and then I wanted more. Most of all, it was enlightening, it was a game changer and a book that everyone could and should read, especially those like me who didn't necessarily agree with a lot of the decisions he made.

    It is an ok read

    All things considered, it was an ok read from a substandard president.

    A presidents journey

    I enjoyed reading this book because it gave me an insight into what a President goes through during his time in office. It is a job that demands complete sacrifice and a strong love for America. George Bush did the best he could during his time as President and I would recomend reading his book to grasp his reasons and explanations for his actions; good and bad, liked and disliked. I am proud to live in America and have a democracy that keeps us strong and free.

    Interesting

    Different than most books about the presidency, I found it interesting to see what drove Mr. Bush to make some of the decisions that he made.
