"Without Karl Rove, there would be no President George W. Bush. Rove is co-president of the United States."
--From the Introduction

Behind every successful politician lies a group of fiercely loyal individuals who help make the dream of holding public office become a reality. In President George W. Bush's case, one person has always stood above the rest. His name is Karl Rove. Dubbed "the man with the plan" by the President himself, White House Senior Advisor Karl Rove helped develop the political career of George W. Bush and continues to be a guiding force within the current Bush White House. But who is Karl Rove and how did he acquire such power and influence?

Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential is the first in-depth examination of Rove's remarkable political journey, as well as a straightforward narrative of the key role he has played in George W. Bush's rise to the top. Equal parts biography and history of late twentieth-century politics, this fascinating book pieces together the puzzle of Rove's extraordinary political life through personal interviews with Rove himself as well as revealing stories from friends and foes alike. Veteran political journalists James Moore and Wayne Slater take you on a fast-paced ride that uncovers both the masterful skills and secret machinations of the President's chief political strategist. You'll gain the inside story on how Rove:

  • Destroyed the careers of people who opposed his ideas and his candidates
  • Planned "secret" classes to teach George W. Bush how government works
  • Ran brutal yet brilliant campaigns that eventually swept Bush into the White House
  • Impacted the midterm elections of 2002
  • Exerts his influence in virtually every presidential decision--whether it involves steel import tariffs or extending the war on terrorism

Karl Rove is both feared and admired by Republicans and Democrats alike. In the fullness of his accomplishments, Rove has raised a new and disturbing question for American voters and their republic: Who really runs this country? In Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential, you'll enter a world of power and politics where few dare to venture--and leave with a better understanding of how much power Karl Rove really has.
