George H. W. Bush served as the United States’ 41st President. In office from 1989-1993, Bush had a long career in politics before the presidency. He served two terms in Congress, acted as the ambassador to the United Nations, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. This collection of letters begins with correspondence from Bush to his parents during WWII while serving as a naval pilot. It continues through his post-war business career and into his political career. The letters provide a unique insight into Bush’s personal voice through his presidency and afterwards. The last heartfelt letter is addressed to his “kids” and discusses life and is “about a man who is very happily growing old.” the book has a wonderful balance of wit, wisdom, charisma, and loving words to pull on one’s heartstrings.
