Overview

Barbara Bush: A Memoir by Barbara Bush

Barbara Bush endures as one of America's most popular First Ladies. She has won worldwide acclaim for her wit, compassion, and candor as both a presidential wife and mother. In this #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Mrs. Bush offers a heartfelt portrait of her life in and out of the White House, from her small-town schoolgirl days in Rye, New York, to her fateful union with George H.W. Bush, to her role as First Lady of the United States. Here, she writes candidly about:
• her early years with George Bush in West Texas
• the tragic death of her young daughter
• the world of Washington politics and the famous figures she's met
• her role as the nation's leading literacy champion
• her feelings about the Iran-Contra scandal, the Persian Gulf conflict, and the Cold War
• the disappointment of the 1992 presidential campaign — and the mixed blessing of regaining her private life
...and much more. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, dozens of personal photographs, and a healthy dose of humor, this memoir is as compelling and honest as the former First Lady herself.

This book has been both pleasurable to read as well as surprising to me as I had no idea how much Mrs. Bush traveled with her husband through the years. It is quite long, but with a lot of information; maybe a better way of phrasing that would be to say it is lengthy beCAUSE of all the years this memoir covers. I always had her pictured to be more conservative, but she's actually more liberal than her husband. Also, I wish that she would not put herself down as I never thought she was frumpy nor unattractive. My only complaint about the book would be her usage of the words lovely, glorious, and marvelous - that really got old!

this is one of this best memoirs that barbra bush has put together and made such a wonderful bestseller. It was most fasinating to me to find out how she got to know and meet a future president and become a future lady. it is also very intresting to me to see how she travels around the world and meets future world leaders. this is truly a historical book but at the same time it is a family book because it shows how she keeps an entire family together during the white house years and it also shows how she got involved with her literacy program which was very fasinating.
