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, his discovery of faith, and his 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.

Man sollte ihm schon einmal zuhören...

Ja, ich höre sie schon wieder, die Stimmen, die sich ergeifern, weil ich George Bush gut finde... Nun, sei es drum, "Decision Points" ist auf jeden Fall hörenswert, wenn man den früheren US-Präsidenten und seine Entscheidungen, die eine ganze Welt beeinflußt haben, besser verstehen will. Meiner Meinung nach fehlt uns Normalbürgern der tiefere Einblick in die (Ab-)Gründe der Weltpolitik. Daher ist es schon interessant mehr von den jeweiligen Entscheidungsträgern selbst zu erfahren. Ich fand und finde, das George Bush gut gehandelt hat, ja gar nicht anders handeln konnte. Zwischenzeitlich gibt es immer mehr Stimmen, die das genauso sehen.
