Summary
President George W. Bush describes the critical decisions of his presidency and personal life.

Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America’s 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.
In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas Governor’s Mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America’s most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for his historic and controversial decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first decade of the 21st century.

President Bush writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his accomplishments reforming education, treating HIV/AIDS in Africa, and safeguarding the country amid chilling warnings of additional terrorist attacks. He also offers intimate new details on his decision to quit drinking, discovery of faith, and relationship with his family.

A groundbreaking new brand of memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on one of the most consequential eras in American history – and the man at the center of events.

It's enlightening to hear Bush describe his decision-making process agree or disagree from inside the White House. It helps give a greater understanding of how he thinks.

It's a very high level, non-critical overview. Rumsfeld's Known and Unknown is a better read.

Highly recommend! President Bush did a tremendous job explaining his decisions in office and giving all of us a better understanding at the burdens of being the most powerful leader in the world!

I liked how President Bush laid out the book by topics rather than chronological. I think his book should be required reading for our young adults, as well as any other president. It gives you insight on what it takes to be a leader, that life is complicated and messy. It is not made up of sound bites. I also liked knowing that President Bush believes in a higher power , that decisions are not made alone but through the council of many.
