While they were all caught up in the crazy atmosphere surrounding the presidential election and its aftermath, many Americans seem to have overlooked the question of "Who is our next president?" Award winning writer and Texas native, Bill Minutaglio, was first on the Bush scene years ago and wrote by far the best reviewed, authoritative and breathless biography of the forty-second president, George W. Bush. Minutaglio's tireless research and compelling writing chronicles a true, riveting family saga about extraordinary power and politics in America. Starting with his childhood, Minutaglio details how George W. Bush is the ultimate prodigal son. Unrelenting in his research, Minutaglio interviewed over 300 close to George W. Bush, from his brother Governor Jeb Bush of Florida to uncles and cousins, from current and former political advisers to high ranking insiders from his father's years in the White House. From the profound influence his sister's death had on him as a young boy to his pranks in one of Yale's secret societies and how he made his fortune in baseball, Minutaglio leraves no stone unturned.
The result is a nuanced, insightful and fascinating look at how Dubya became President.
