From Pulitzer Prize winner and number-one New York Times best-selling author Jon Meacham comes a sweeping yet intimate biography of George H. W. Bush. Based on rigorous research, hours of private interviews, and extraordinary access to Bush's diaries and to his family, Destiny and Power paints a vivid and affecting portrait of the distinctive American life of a man from the Greatest Generation: his childhood in Connecticut, his heroic service in World War II, his entry into the Texas oil business, and his storied rise in politics from congressman to U.N. ambassador to head of the CIA to 41st president of the United States.

A wonderful biography of an underrated president
yes Meacham has written a brilliant book that is both highly informative and easy to listen to.
George H.W Bush, he emerges as a far more interesting and complicated man than his public image would suggest.
The narration is excellent, very impressed with the reading.

This is a book I was really looking forward too and it did not disappoint. Well written and full of wonderful insights. Brilliant
