Kitty Kelley has done her homework on the political and the personal in her comprehensive story of the Bush family--from patriarch Prescott to son George H. W. to grandson George W. But the momentum comes from her revelations of their secrets. Forget the alcohol and drug stories--you ain't heard nothin' yet! It's a world of men, yet the strength of the women, especially Barbara Bush's, shines. Overall, she was patient with George's peccadilloes and long absences, but when she wanted, she could be one tough mama. Reader Susan Denaker's pleasant, well-modulated voice helps bridge the nonlinear sequencing of the book. A book better listened to than read, this is like hearing juicy cocktail party gossip instead of a history lesson. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
