Politics aside, it's tough not to like and admire George Bush. This audio, a collection of his letters, chronicles Bush's life from the time he was a navy pilot in WWII through his presidency. Read by George Bush himself, and by members of his family, this audio provides an intimate glimpse into the private thoughts of a public figure. The letters are by turn humorous, insightful, touching--particularly when discussing Barbara--and heartbreaking when he writes of his daughter, Robin, who died of leukemia. This listener came away with a portrait of a gentleman in the best sense of the word. George Bush is humble, caring and patriotic--the embodiment of what made the Greatest Generation great.
