Spanning a letter to his mother as an 18 year old ready to fight for his country in WWII to a present day note to President Obama thanking him for the bestowment of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, this is an insightful look into his remarkable life.

An easy book to read, given all the breaks between letters and commentary. While I realize the letters/comments contained in the book were probably carefully chosen to cast a favorable light on "H W", I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was amazed by the volume of letters the man has written. Although he will never be considered one of our country's best Presidents, he certainly was one of the most decent men to occupy the office, and did a better job than some would give him credit for doing.

Great insight into the core of a private, but public man. The book covers his life, through letters written through his life. He comes across as a man who is deeply thoughtful, caring about his family, friends, business associates, and even people who don't support his political positions. His book begins as a teenager enlisting in the Air Force trained as a fighter pilot, serving valiantly as a WWII pilot proceeding onto life after the military, through college, and into business, culminating in politics. This book is engaging, amusing, enlightening, and well worth an open mind. I highly recommend this book, it will surprise you, and in the end, I believe, entertain and probably change your mind about the man.

George H. W. Bush shows us his life by sharing the details. This book's strength comes from the small moments of the author's family life, military experience, and public service. The sixteen chapters are composed almost entirely of selected letters that George Bush wrote to other people, accompanied by a few lines of background about each. There is an intimacy to this collection that would not remain had the letters been edited into a narrative. Readers can hear this former president's voice and judge if it rings true.

George Bush has an understated sense of humor only rarely seen by the public during his presidency. A few examples:
- He brought in Dana Carvey to "play" him at a White House staff meeting.
- A serious memo to President Reagan ends with the "blind man" joke.
- Awarding a "Scowcroft Award" to anyone who falls asleep in a Cabinet meeting then makes a brilliant recovery upon awakening.
- "Being called dishonest by Bill Clinton is like being called ugly by a frog."
- "Mikhail--I want you to have this first message that I have ever sent to a foreign leader on my new computer..."

George Bush is also a decent man, who values his friends and lives his values. This seems particularly clear as we read about:
- The letters he wrote to the families of soldiers who died fighting for their country
- His deep disappointment in Richard Nixon over Watergate and their continuing friendship afterward
- His restraint when dealing with a press corps "...more hateful than I can ever recall in modern times."
- His sincere efforts to remain friends with those he disagreed with politically
- The value he places on equality and civil rights in the face of extremists from the right and the left

This is a well-written book by a man who made a difference in the world without demanding the spotlight, even as president. We hear about this world as he described and interpreted it for others. Those interested in a more traditional treatment of world events during George Bush's time in the White House may prefer A World Transformed, co-authored with Brent Scowcroft.

In this outstanding book one reads in detail about the great life, thoughts and actions of a humble but noble US President whose positive domestic and world influence spanned for decades in the past, the present and surely for many more in the future!

I tend to vote liberal Dem but I found this book incredibly inspiring. His early years and values remind me of my father who was from his generation. The basic kindness which he has exemplified,his deep and enduring love of his wife and the fact that all the fame and success never changed him from a man who valued his family and friends above all else. His letters to his grandchildren upon their births are wonderful. His deep relationship with his parents where he shares everything, amazing! There is much about life and relationships in this book of letters that can teach us how to be better people. Also I really admired how he knew how to ask for what he wanted in job negotiations and he understood what he could offer in jobs.

Possibly his parents perceived the life that lie ahead for their son, or because of intervention from above; whatever the reason for his long name, George Herbert Walker Bush has lived a truely remarkable life.

The youngest pilot for a time in WWII, shot down in the Pacific Ocean and rescued by submarine, a graduate of Yale University, and a Wildcat Oilman. Add into this already amazing life-- elected member of the U S Congress from the stronghold of Democrat Party Texas, U S Ambassador to the United Nations, National Chairman of the Republican Party, Ambassador to the U S Ligation to People's Republic of China, Vice-President of the United States, and President. What a life!

The thread that runs through the fabic of George H W Bush's life, revealed through his many letters, memos, and personal diary entries is the humanity, love and respect this man had for his family, his friends and all human beings. A son of New England Connecticut, and of course-- his beloved seaside Maine, a region that helped to shape his early values, but not the hard-edged variety-- there is a gentleness and compassion in the man. Make no mistake not the whimpy kind, but gentleness with a ramrod spine demanding personal integrity and high ideals-- strength that withstood WWII, the death of a much loved young daughter, Watergate and other challenges well into the his later years.

Anyone over 50 will be able to relive their lives through many of Mr. Bush's experiences, and possibly rethink some personal perspectives regarding some of the events in the last quarter of the 20TH Century.
