概要:

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 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. 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 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.

A Very Humanistic Book

by Ndxowner (投稿: 2014-04-18) 非常に良い パーマリンク

Reading this book will allow the reader to acquire a better understanding of George Bush, the president, the human being, the conservative.

Whether you agree with him or not on his decisions, this book tells us the process followed to reach those decisions.

In the end we should agree...

I read this book because I wanted to know how Bush would defend himself and his administration. My answer about half way through and having skimmed the rest is: "Not well at all."(<a href="http://www.pickcheaps.com">www.pickcheaps.com</a>)
