I just finished reading “Decision Points” by President Bush.  I should start out by saying that I am a Conservative and I was a fan of Mr. Bush during all eight years of his Presidency.  I totally understand why his approval rating fell as low as it did, but I still have always thought that he was doing the best job with the decisions he had to make.

This book was an excellent read.  It is not a typical memoir that covers every detail of a life.  It is based on major decisions that the president faced during his term.  Examples are running for office, Iraq, Katrina, personnel, and the financial crisis. Surprisingly it is a real page turner.  I found it fascinating to read about some of the behind the scenes details, considerations and emotions.

It doesn’t matter if you are a conservative or liberal, republican or democrat, or somewhere in between, you will find this to be an enjoyable read.  I also think that whether you agree with the decisions made or you do not, you will find President Bush to be a sincere man who stands by his convictions.  I highly recommend this book!
