Description - Destiny And Power by Jon Meacham

The #1 New York Times bestselling biography of George H.W. Bush. Based on rigorous research, hours of private interviews with Bush, and unprecedented access to his diaries, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author brings to life the 41st President of the United States.

"He was the last of a kind, and his rise, his fall, and his rebirth in the twilight of his life offers a window on a great deal of American history."

An intimate and detailed life story of a man known only through his politics, or from a distance. From interviews and unprecedented access to Bush's presidential diaries, Meacham brings Bush and the great American family vividly to life, beginning in the Midwest in the late 1800's and on to George H. W. Bush's childhood, his heroic service in World War II, Texas, his political rise. With Meacham's trademark compelling narration, historical depth, and contemporary insight, this stunning biography reveals the unusual self-reflections and distinctive American life of a man from the Greatest Generation who pursued a life of service as a guardian of America in the way of Eisenhower, and was one of the last gentleman in our political world.
