RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 48014544 LA English T1 Heartbeat : George Bush in his own words A1 Bush, George,, McGrath, Jim., PB Scribner PP New York YR 2001 SN 0743224795 9780743224796 AB "A collection of excerpts from the former president's speeches and other writings, Heartbeat reveals the basic ideals and beliefs that have served George H.W. Bush throughout his public and private life. He speaks often of what he calls "heartbeat." It is a simple word - a code word - referring to personal bedrock values concerning service, duty, honor, friends, faith, and particularly family." "As the Bushes prove themselves to be one of the most important political families in U.S. history, this warm and revealing look into the former president's guiding principles could not come at a more important time. Culled from Mr. Bush's speeches over the course of his presidency and beyond, Heartbeat discloses a surprising personal side to the forty-first president - a warm, witty, and expressive man."--Jacket.
