Fresh Fiction Review

Non-Fiction Biography

41 has been described by its author George W. Bush as a love story and that is the best description I have heard. George W. Bush tells the story of his father's life in detail and with each word you can feel the love and respect he has for his father.

George W. gives descriptions of not only the fascinating life that his father led but also the pain he felt at the loss of his daughter. As you read 41 you feel the sadness, pain and happiness of a family that has spent their lives in the public eye serving our great nation.

With the story of the campaigns you can understand why not too long ago Barbara Bush stated she didn't want her younger son to run for president. The stress and strain it puts on a family and siblings to see what a candidate is put through would be hard for any of us to deal with.

From a historical perspective 41 is a great contribution by the 43rd president, it gives a perspective that future historians will be able to use as no others before them have. 41 is well written and reads very smoothly. I found it very difficult to put down the story as it is so well put together. But what keeps you drawn in most is the love George W. Bush has for his father and family, not only does it give you an intimate look into the 41st president, but it gives you an intimate look into the 43rd president by revealing the power of his love of family.

No matter your political leaning, this is not a political book it is the story of a father by his son, a story of love, dedication, and loyalty to both country and family. 41 shows that you can suffer great loss but through strength, love and God create a family that is strong and accomplishes great things.

SUMMARY

George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st President.

Forty-three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President.

The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family.

In addition, George W. Bush discusses his father’s influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term Presidency.
