      The world lost a great man In this highly educational biography of George H.W Bush, Meacham offers the reader an insightful look into the life and times of the 41st President of the United States With scores of interesting anecdotes wrapped in a fluid narrative, the author brings to life a man who sought to influence American politics in the latter part of the 20th century, while trying to keep from being subsumed in the shadow of his presidential predecessor Bush was a man of honour and dign Th [...]

      Sometimes you shape events by not making any mistakes Destiny Power was an unexpected read for me I enjoy biographies and Jon Meacham has written a few that are on my to read list This was the first I picked up I will be picking up the others I was only 10 years old when Bush was elected president, so although I do have memories of his presidency the consequence of the times I was living through were lost on me.First off, the text flows well, and is simply written Its narrative Sometimes you sha [...]

      George H W Bush is in some ways a neglected figure in recent American history Ronald Reagan supposedly won the Cold War abroad and defeated big government at home, leaving nothing for Bush to do but betray the Gipper s legacy A comparison with an earlier generation s view of JFK and Lyndon Johnson would be instructive, I think Bush s reputation improved during his son s administration, as he was seen as the good ones whose legacy was tarnished by a feckless son Bush 41 s positive quali George H [...]

      George H W Bush is one of the few presidents that did not write his autobiography after leaving office Jon Meacham has produced the official biography on H.W Bush I have read a number of Meacham s books including American Lion which won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize.Meacham did extensive research for the book and was allowed access to Bush s diaries and numerous interviews with family and friends Needless to say he also had access to the presidential papers and other archive materials Bush George H W [...]
