"In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings readers 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, discovery of faith, and relationship with his family.

    Is Bush ever going to go away!,Who cares about the ramblings of a war criminal?!

    I assume the book contains lots of pictures and was written for Junior Bush, aka The Decider, by someone who is literate. Does it contain the picture of Bush supposedly reading a childrens' book to a class of school children, but holding the book upside down ? How about the picture of him supposedly looking through a pair of high power binoculars with the lens caps on ? This is the same guy who said ' I'll be long gone before some smart guy ever figures out what went on in this Oval Office '.
    The Texan wannabe from Connecticut should be paying people to read his memoirs.

    There is nothing this man has to say that I am interested in. He was the worse of the worst US presidents in history and not worthy of a second look since leaving office.

    Who would ever have thought a 400 page book by George Bush.

    There must either pictures on one page and text on the next, or it is written in very large font!

    If it is frank and honest enough, I will read it in a heartbeat. I'm not a fan of his in any stretch, but only 44 men have ever held that office so I'm still curious to hear him retell his 8 years, even if the book is written in crayon.

    No doubt the most pointless book since 'How to Speak French' was translated into French.

    Will crayons be included in the sale price?

    This is a misleading headline. It implies that the book is only available for between $258 and $412 when it is clear there is a $35 version. Poor reporting.
