Decision Points Book Review

Book Description:

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 Points brings 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.

A groundbreaking new brand of presidential memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on eight remarkable years in American history—and on the man at the center of events.

Personal Thoughts:
This book was a very interesting read. Usually most biographies have a lot of personal information in them. His is a very factual book. I usually breeze through a book but this one took me some time due to all the information in it. I found the information on Hurricane Katrina and the ecomony very eye opening. It also spook in great detail about the September 11th and the war after. I thought it was a good book and offered alot of insight into the decisions he made, and why he made them.
