Item description for Barbara Bush: A Memoir by Barbara Bush...

In her memoir, Mrs. Bush for the first time gives readers a very private look at a life lived in the public eye for more than 25 years. This is a warm and funny memoir that will charm Mrs. Bush's millions of admirers and earn her many more.

Publishers Description
Barbara Bush endures as one of America's most popular First Ladies. She has won worldwide acclaim for her wit, compassion, and candor as both a presidential wife and mother. In this #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Mrs. Bush offers a heartfelt portrait of her life in and out of the White House, from her small-town schoolgirl days in Rye, New York, to her fateful union with George H.W. Bush, to her role as First Lady of the United States. Here, she writes candidly about:

• her early years with George Bush in West Texas

• the tragic death of her young daughter

• the world of Washington politics and the famous figures she's met

• her role as the nation's leading literacy champion

• her feelings about the Iran-Contra scandal, the Persian Gulf conflict, and the Cold War

• the disappointment of the 1992 presidential campaign -- and the mixed blessing of regaining her private life

...and much more. Filled with entertaining anecdotes, dozens of personal photographs, and a healthy dose of humor, this memoir is as compelling and honest as the former First Lady herself.

Reviews - What do customers think about Barbara Bush: A Memoir?

Tugboat Babs  Sep 6, 2005
Tugboat Babs has finally written her memoir. She is in the weird situation of having been married to one president and having spawned another. She is most informative on the Bush's early years together -- although she provides very little information on the family's connection with the Medellin cartel. She is also mum on Laura's vehicular homicide conviction.

All in all, it is a tale to rank with that of the Sopranos.
Boring  May 23, 2005
While I admire the Bush presidencies, I found this book boring. It is written as a catalog of events. There seemed not to be any central theme or purpose in the writing other than that it happened. That made it about as appealing as if a cook went into the kitchen and put every available ingredient into one pot to make soup.
Barbasra Bush: A Memoir  Apr 19, 2005
What a poitive, gritty, yet appreciative woman hlding dear the basic human values of life that hold our country together. Truly, she was one of our greatest first ladies--she put "first things first," meaning her family and husband first. A must read for all American women who think raising a strong family isn't worth it!! What a payoff! When walking through the George Bush Library at Texas A&M, etched on a wall is George Sr.'s comment that his greatest blessing in life is "that his children still want to come home" Now I understand why.
A warm, fuzzy read  Sep 10, 2004
I'll admit up front that I am a fan of both 41 and 43--and have always admired "Bar". That being said, I loved the book. Mrs. Bush has such a gentle, warm way about her and this is certainly reflected in her writing. She is able to weave together the story of her life (including some not-so-wonderful moments) with wit, warmth and clarity--all without ever resorting to name-calling, self-pity or egotism. This book is a refreshing change of pace and should be taken for what it is: a remarkable woman's life story told from her (very sunny) point of view.
A Warm and Interesting Look  Feb 11, 2004
After reading this book, her husband's second book, and finally her second memoir, I did have a profound respect for her dignity, love for her family, and stamina. This book was an easy read and was absolutely fascinating to go along on exotic trips and learning about the side kick's day to day existence as wife to President. The book made me admire the Bush's as a couple more, the love for their kids and each other, and their principles, even if I did not agree with all of the latter.
