Industry reviews
"Parmet gives a meticulous account of Bush's rise to prominence."
New York Times Book Review - Andrew Delbanco (12/14/1997)

"If 'George Bush' the biography is not as insightful as the Beschloss book on LBJ or as salacious as the Hersh book on LBJ, its plain-vanilla quality describes a life that has been one Americans can be proud of, and a man with many qualities we can all hope to emulate."
Washington Post Book World - Norman Ornstein (12/14/1997)
