Excellent, good listening voice, a must to read as it is intertaining and informative
I enjoyed listening to this book.I learned new information on the Bush family history.
This is actually a good biography of Bush. I was pleasantly surprised. It kept me engaged. I think it showed a very personal side of someone we only see from a public perspective. It gave a lot of details regarding his faith and the impact it has had on his life, which is what i was interested in the most. But it largely focuses on his life story, weaving his faith into that main story.
I just read a previous review by Greg Newby from Memphis, TN. How can two people read the same book and conclude two totally opposite opinions? It was not an autobiography. It was an account of his spiritual journey and the way he dealt with events on that jouryey. This book gives one an excellent insight into what motivates George Bush. You may not agree with his policies or faith practices, but knowing what motivates a man can help you understand where he is coming from. It was an excellent read.
The book gave me a new appreciation and respect for this president as he daily must make decisions that affect our country and the world. It give me confidence and support for his capable administration who he appears to have chosen with a high standard for morality
If George W. Bush does any praying at all, it's to the almighty dollar. That's what makes this piece of audio-fiction so outrageously funny. Christianity is a rhetorical device for a man who can't even spell 'rhetorical.' I remember Christ saying something about not praying out where everyone can see you, but to do it privately, in your closet. So why does Bushy Boy wear his righteousness on his sleeve? It's because he's doing the very thing that Christ wanted us to avoid: using religion for other purposes. In his case, the purpose is to justify his corrupt policies and make the Christian right believe that he is being led by the Holy Spirit, so that nothing he he says or does can be questioned or criticized. Well, if Bush is being personally led by God, then I can tell you exactly what God looks like. He's rectangular, made of paper, has a mixture of green and black ink, and bears a picture of George Washington on his front.
