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
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
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
through would be hard for any of us to deal with.
From a historical perspective 41 is a great contribution
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
together. But what keeps you drawn in most is the love
George W. Bush has for his father and family, not only
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.
