Watered down and never critical
If you are looking for a detailed look at the Bush family, then this is the wrong book for you. Contentious issues such as George W's days in the Texas Air National Guard are glossed over and there are few critical words for anyone in the family - as if the book was personally edited by a family member. Perhaps the unabridged version has the details this version lacks. If you are looking for real insight into the Bush family and how they operate, look elsewhere. If you just want the Official Whitehouse version in a 'lite' version then this might be fine. One other thing, the reader sounds like he is reading a bedtime story to a child, not a book for adults.

General Waste of Time
Unless you are preparing to impress your republican friends with a sugar watered history of the Bushes, this audio book is worthless. No new information here, none. The glaring gaps in the story of how the Bushes came power qualifies this book as propaganda both for the family and the republican party.
Really? don't waste your money or time on this one.
