From the final chapter of George W. Bush's book: "Finally, I thank the men and women of the United States military. While I dedicated this book to Laura, Barbara, and Jenna, nobody did more to inspire me than those who wear the uniform of this country and their families. Their achievements will rank alongside those of the greatest generations in history, and the highest honor of my life was to serve as their commander in chief." This book made me laugh and it made me cry but it also gave me an insight into a man who's decisions influenced a part of my life since I was active duty while he was Commander in Chief. I can't say that all of his decisions were the right ones, but if you have any interest in politics and how decisions are made in the Oval Office than I would definitely recommend reading this particular book.

I thought this was a very good book. I really enjoyed the stories he tells of things that happened in his life. It is really funny in parts. Even if you didn't like him as a president I think you will really enjoy this book.

Even if you didn't agree with his politics or policies, it's a great read. He is to be commended for telling you his stories without airs or pretense. He explains why he believes what he believes and why he decided what he did. I laughed and I cried and I came away with more respect for the American leader who, no doubt, faced some of toughest challenges of the last sixty or so years. Any easy read, but well worth it!
