Former First Lady Barbara Bush's diary provides the organizing element around her memoir Reflections, as it did for her 1994 autobiography, Barabara Bush. She writes about things that happen to everyone--well, not exactly everyone, every day--but many of the encounters and emotions will strike a chord with listeners. She does indeed reflect, on family, friends, and world leaders. Mrs. Bush is fascinated by the people she meets around the world, and she connects us to them with human details of friendships and first impressions. The short and often spare diary entries keep the pace moving, giving listeners a you-are-there sense. Her no-nonsense, "let's get to the point" style reinforces her humor and wit. R.F.W.
