Surprisingly, this fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of the Bush presidency is not a dry read. Jacob Weisberg here tells the story of George W. Bush through the lens of family dynamics, focusing also on the advisors with the most influence and the manner in which they utilized Bush family tensions to advance their particular agenda. It's hard to claim that an author is unbiased when the conclusion they've come to is that their subject is a fundamentally limited person with enormous flaws, but Weisberg appears to have begun with an even-handed perspective, and blame for the failed presidency is distributed among quite a few people, rather than assigned to Bush all by his lonesome. This book is meticulously researched and incredibly educational. It's a fast read that leaves the reader with a better appreciation for how America got itself into such a hot mess. Highly recommended!
