Description
"Advance praise for Destiny and Power: 'Altogether fair, insightful. A portrait made especially compelling by the author's remarkable access to Bush's private White House diaries. This is a timely, first-rate book!'--David McCullough; 'What a spectacular and moving portrait this is--not only of a remarkably classy man but of the era that shaped him! It is hard to imagine a biographer more fitted than Jon Meacham to write what will surely be the definitive work on George Herbert Walker Bush'--Doris Kearns Goodwin; 'This astonishing book is both timely and timeless. A fascinating and insightful portrayal of the life of an exemplary American citizen'--Walter Isaacson; 'Jon Meacham's timely and intimate biography of George Bush 41 is a welcome reminder of this modest president's call to service, from the cockpits of World War II to the Oval Office and the end of the Cold War'--Tom Brokaw; 'This riveting biography by the incomparable Jon Meacham gives George H.W. Bush his well-deserved place in history. Destiny and Power is full of surprises, revealing 41's important role in scene after crucial historical scene of the past seven decades'--Michael Beschloss"--Provided by publisher.
