A PUBLIC FIGURE, A PRIVATE MAN

Read by President Bush, with Barbara Bush, Dorothy Bush Koch, Marvin Bush, Neil Bush, George P. Bush and Jonathan Bush

Though reticent in public, George Bush has openly shared his private thoughts in his correspondence throughout his life. Organized chronologically, the volume begins with eighteen-year-old George's letters to his parents during World War II, when, at the time he was commissioned, he was the youngest pilot in the Navy. Listeners will gain insights into Bush's career highlights the oil business, his two terms in Congress, his ambassadorship to the U.N., his service as an envoy in China, his tenure with the Central Intelligence Agency, and of course, the vice presidency, the presidency, and the post-presidency.

A devoted husband, father, and American, his missives include: a love letter to Barbara; a letter to his mother about missing his daughter Robin after her death from leukemia; a letter to his children two weeks before Nixon's resignation; and one written to them just before the beginning of Desert Storm. His writings are remarkable for their candor, humor, and poignancy.

All the Best, George Bush provides a surprisingly intimate and insightful portrayal of the forty-first president of the United States. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “The travelogue of an observant man with much mettle and an open heart…His writings cover affairs of state and affairs of spaniels on equal footing. He is modest and gracious. But these short takes on a long life reveal an underlying, consistent sense of duty to office, family, and morality.” 

    Washington Times

  • “Who knew that beneath George Bush’s buttoned-up propriety pulsed the warm heart of a prolific and occasionally poetic writer with a wacky sense of humor?” 

    People

  • “An unusual glimpse at the private thoughts of a public figure.” 

    Newsweek
