I've just finished 'All The Best'. This book follows letters and diary entries from George Bush that start when he was a very young man all the way through his post-President years. Whether you're Republican or Democrat, you will find insight into a man who can be described as thoroughly GOOD his entire life. I could go on but...not gonna do it...wouldn't be prudent!

Top reading for any age. Gives insight into his life, family, love of country and God. Bush #41 has a flair for writing and you can see that in the letters to his folks, family members, government personnel. Extremely interesting - historical, factual.

I enjoyed the first release of this memoir by George H.W. Bush so I was happy to read this newly updated edition. Being a letter writer myself, I am drawn to how Mr. Bush decided to let his letters and journal entries tell his authobiography with intimate accounts of what he was thinking and and feeling at specific moments in his life, and probably in a more accurate way than trying to remember the events in hindsight. Through Mr. Bush's candid and unapologetic personal writings the reader gains insight not only into his military service, political career, and term as the forty-first president of the United States, but also who he is as a father, husband, and friend through a love letter to Barbara, a letter to his mother about missing his daughter, Robin, after her death from leukemia at age five, and letters and emails written to his children and grandchildren. This updated version includes writings about his humanitarian tours with former President Bill Clinton to areas around the world hit by natural disasters, 9/11, and his son George W. Bush's presidency. A gallery of photos is also included. It is a book that is enjoyable to read and one that anyone with an interest in political history and the Bush family in particular will find interesting. I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

This is a great book just to read. It also lets you see into the life of another person thru personal letters.This person was a loving, kind and moral man. The world would be a better place to live in if it was made up of people like President George Bush.

This book is an excellent book, I am usually not interested in Biography's, but George Bush has always facinated me. So I read it and I absolutely loved it. It shows the true heart and feelings of a president and It reminds us how very human the President really is. I pray that his son will continue the legacy. Well Written and from the Heart.

I happen to think Mr. Bush was a very good president, but less sympathetic readers can still benefit from this book. Former President Bush is an extraordinary letter writer. He shows true sympathy and understanding for the other person and a lot of deep feeling. In difficult situations, he shows a clarity of thought, a grasp of key issues, a respect for others, true feelings, and candidness. Beyond the letter writing, this is a book on how to deal with difficult situations in our lives. Mr. Bush in his letters displays a level-headed coolness in such instances that is to be admired. He shows an ability to state a position without putting another person down. He shows a resiliency when dealing with disappointments, and a mature sense of proportion. I found particularly interesting: Letter to Saddam Hussein before Gulf War, letter to Clinton after his tragic loss, letter to a desert storm widow, diary entry about Hirohito's funeral, correspondence with Geraldine Ferraro. Bush is obviously very professional and gentlemanly. He was one of those presidents who lived up to the expectations of that noble office.

This is a great work of correspondence from a career government man who wore many hats. I totally recommend this book to history buffs...Great piece of work Mr. President. By the way, I have a personal letter that I will always treasure from President Bush -- congratulating me on attaining Eagle Scout.

This was an excellent book. I enjoyed every minute of reading. What many Americans could learn from him! A true American, Family man and christian. If his son inherited ANY of his fathers values, he will definately be our next President. It is too bad the American people did not know him in this way while he served our country in his many ways.

Not only does this collection of letters give great insight into President Bush, it encourages one, through the President's great character, to be a better person. Funny, warm, wise and often very romantic, this is as edifying a read as I have experienced in a long
