Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Anderson covers the former president's early life through the election of his son, George W. Bush. Readers will learn about Bush's illustrious military career as the youngest navy pilot in World War II, his skills at baseball, his successes in the oil business, and the various jobs he held in government before entering the White House. Black-and-white photographs from the George Bush Presidential Library appear throughout. The book is one of the most up-to-date for this age group, and the author's admiration for his subject is very obvious. However, it suffers from several important flaws. The simplistic writing style often feels amateurish; sentences are short, and often trite. Internal thoughts and feelings of the former president as well as quotes used in the text are not documented. Libraries will want to rely on existing biographies or wait for a better update.-Jennifer Ralston, Harford County Public Library, Belcamp, MD Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
