With a warm and direct Texas twang, the 43rd president of the United States, George W. Bush, shares his personal take on his most important decisions, professional and personal. The memoir is articulate, unfiltered, and revealing, and President Bush’s dry humor is evident in his empathy-evoking presentation. His delivery is by turns deadly sober, as when he is discussing serious topics such as his decision to quit drinking alcohol and his responses to 9/11, and wry and light, as when he admits to having his father’s eyes and his mother’s mouth. (Barbara Bush is strongly associated with her sharp tongue.) The production will make listeners feel like the president is paying them a social call while providing exclusive insights into a watershed time in American history. W.A.G.
