George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, has authored a personal biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, the 41st President. Forty-three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush's life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President. The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family. In addition, George W. Bush discusses his father's influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term Presidency.

Does this book answer the question why Bush 1 invaded Panama and killed several thousand Panamanian citizens? Or why Richard Armitage and James Baker sat on the board of the Kuwaiti oil drilling company which caused the invasion of its country [by slant drilling into neighboring Iraq]? Or why Bush was at Zapata Oil, owned by the Zapata Corporation, a CIA-front company, later merged into a small hedge fund, which owned the satellite company which gave the wrong coordinates to search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370?
