It's very rare that I come across a book that I don't want to put down. Maybe it's because I get bored or I'm really not interested. I had heard good things about George W. Bush's new book, Decision Points, so I thought I'd give it a try. From the first chapter I was hooked and couldn't stop reading it.
One of the best parts for me about the book is the way the it's set up. It's not a biography, but rather a memoir of certain decisions Bush had to make in his life from a young age until the day he left the Oval Office. For me there we many questions I had and things I had heard about these decisions he made such as the 2 wars and the economic crisis. Most of what you hear comes from the media who twists and changes things around. I wanted to know what was going through Bush's mind and this book gave me that.
I've always loved getting insight from powerful people. To look at Bush's background, life and what it took to make him the most powerful man in the free world was almost inspiring. It made me feel as if I could do it as well. The book also gave me a sense of what type of a person Bush is. This guy is hilarious! He cracks a ton of jokes during the book and tells some funny stories that happened to him while in the White House.
Overall I highly recommend this book for 2 reasons. 1, you get to hear why Bush made the choices he made from him and not from the media and 2, it gives you a great perspective on how genuine of man his really is. All politics aside, he truly has a great story to tell.
