Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential / Edition 1

The New York Times Bestseller

Praise for Bush's Brain

"Love him or hate him, Karl Rove is one of the most brilliant and successful political consultants of all time. In this riveting account, Wayne Slater and Jim Moore tell how he got there."
–Paul Begala, CNN's Crossfire

"If you want to understand the President's underlying motives, read the new book on his guru, Karl Rove, Bush's Brain."
–Al Hunt, The Wall Street Journal

"Bush's Brain, by James Moore and Wayne Slater, two experienced Texas reporters who have covered the pair for many years, has fresh information about Rove's influence on Bush . . . Moore and Slater think that Rove is a dangerous man, but their book is not biased or malicious, based as it is in solid reporting."
–The New York Review of Books

"Bush's Brain isn't a hatchet job on George W. Bush. In fact, the two authors largely dispel the myth of Bush's supposedly deficient IQ. But, more importantly, they lay bare the story of how Karl Rove may be the most powerful man in America. It's a compelling story told by two veteran Texas journalists who don't need a briefing packet to understand the men they're writing about."
–Philip Bruce, KCET/PBS Television, Los Angeles
