I’m not a fan of politics. So, I didn’t get this book with the intent that I was finally going to have the upper hand and “I told you so’s” into the good or the bad decisions that occurred in that time frame. However, what I did find was a nice personal perspective from someone who is challenged with life-altering decisions day in and day out. It’s an interesting 1st person biography written in much the same way as he speaks which pulls you in and gives you the feeling of reading a personal bed-side journal. Each section is broken into major topics: Afghanistan, Iraq, Leading, Katrina, etc… Then takes you through the major events and decision points of these time frames. Even if you didn’t support the decisions he made while in office, you’ve at least understood the challenges he faced, learned a little more about how the government works and received a personal perspective from the man behind the office.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
