Well, I saw the book the other day at Family Christian Stores, saw it was on sale, realized I had a gift card, and I bought it.
It is an engrossing read. President Bush's writing is simple (not simplistic), straight-forward, and down-to-earth. The book is not chronological; it's structured rather around decisions he considers key, most of the them during his presidency. Hence the title, Decision Points.
At 170 pages in, I have noted certain striking themes:
- the tremendous respect and love President Bush has for his father
- his competitive nature
- his love for the United States
- his knowledge of world history in general and of US history in particular
- his charity toward most, even his political enemies
- his command of the White House (contrary to rumors that the VP Cheney was actually running the administration).
