Product description
Synopsis
In this candid and gripping account, President George W. Bush describes the critical decisions that shaped his presidency and personal life. George W. Bush served as president of the United States during eight of the most consequential years in American history. The decisions that reached his desk impacted people around the world and defined the times in which we live. Decision Pointsbrings readers inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the 2000 election, aboard Air Force One during the harrowing hours after the attacks of September 11, 2001, into the Situation Room moments before the start of the war in Iraq, and behind the scenes at the White House for many other historic presidential decisions. For the first time, we learn President Bush's perspective and insights on: His decision to quit drinking and the journey that led him to his Christian faith The selection of the vice president, secretary of defense, secretary of state, Supreme Court justices, and other key officials His relationships with his wife, daughters, and parents, including heartfelt letters between the president and his father on the eve of the Iraq War His administration's counterterrorism programs, including the CIA's enhanced interrogations and the Terrorist Surveillance Program Why the worst moment of the presidency was hearing accusations that race played a role in the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, and a critical assessment of what he would have done differently during the crisis His deep concern that Iraq could turn into a defeat costlier than Vietnam, and how he decided to defy public opinion by ordering the troop surge His legislative achievements, including tax cuts and reforming education and Medicare, as well as his setbacks, including Social Security and immigration reform The relationships he forged with other world leaders, including an honest assessment of those he did and didn't trust Why the failure to bring Osama bin Laden to justice ranks as his biggest disappointment and why his success in denying the terrorists their fondest wish-attacking America again-is among his proudest achievements A groundbreaking new brand of presidential memoir,Decision Pointswill captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on eight remarkable years in American history-and on the man at the center of events.

George W Bush a True Presidential Leader and a Patriot

Review For: Decision Points by George W. Bush (2010, Hardcover)

" George W Bush Decision Points A True Presidential Leader, Republican, Leader and A Patriot "


This book is long awaited by myself and I’m sure by others as well, who look forward to hearing about one man’s time to take America places where few presidents are willing to go, for fear of approval and political correctness. We are America and time will tell about this president’s long term, POSITIVE effect on this country and the world. Although his decisions may not have been popular, they certainly came from a leader who cared enough to protect and serve the people of the United States of America as well as other countries. Every man has a destiny and a journey to walk through in his life. I’m sure this book will be well-written and very insightful for those who do not understand what it means to give selflessly for the country and to protect the freedom of others. I enjoyed this book because it gave the former President of the United States a chance to tell his story to the world and why he made certain decisions for the betterment of the country. Not everything was the correct decision but with this book the reader gets to see his perspective on issues wide ranging, from the election recount in 2000 to the Iraq War and the War on Terror.

A Must Read Book About Former President George W.Bush

Review For: Decision Points by George W. Bush (2010, Hardcover)

I wanted to know more about our President who was so controversial during his 2 terms in office. I love the fact that he is comfortable and openly speaks about his faith and religion, sometimes matters like this don't mix with polititcs. I decided to buy it on EBAY because it was a hard to find item used and new was too expensive. It is a long term reading experierence since it is around 400 pages, but is worth the time spent. This book is in his own words not something somebody else wrote. It brings you very up-close and personal with George W. Bush.

The Backstage of A Troublesome Decade

Review For: Decision Points by George W. Bush (2010, Hardcover)

Writing from the product perspective (not the content), Decision Points - in Kindle version (maybe in hardcover too) - is filled with photos placed according to the story that is being told, and this makes fact recollection much easier to the reader. There are few books around which value photo placement in such way, so one do not have to search the book or elsewhere for "evidence". A great idea.

From the content perspective, the book starts off with a brief and light take on his early days from birth all the way to politics. Although the chapter is called "Quitting", an explicit reference for the long gone and self acknowledged drinking habits, alcohol itself does not - and should not - make the highlights here. Certainly, because it's not the most important thing to talk about. Moreover, if quitting alcohol is considered a first decision point in the whole context, well done, it is a step ahead. From chapter 2 - "Running" - and on, it will be all about politics.

Judging by the pages read so far, Bush truly shows he knows what he was facing during a difficult decade in many levels. A remarkable collection of security threats (proven or not proven to exist), a natural disaster of incredible proportions and the verge of an economic meltdown of unprecedented consequences are too much for one to handle, no matter how prepared or unprepared, well or bad assisted a commander in chief is. While the handling of some or all aspects of these major issues could have been better, as himself acknowledges in the book, decisions and directions were given according to the best available information and common sense at a given time. If results of any given action led to effective success or failure, depending on common understanding or individual views on the subject of choice, is a completely different discussion.

This is an honest account of a person who dealt with some of the most difficult issues in current history, and thank God none of us had to walk in his shoes. Even for a minute.

The reader will be taken inside the White House for all of these momentous decisions and will feel he is right their in the room with The President and his staff.
this is a must read for everyone whether your a democrat or a republican you will want this book.
