Book Description

An underachiever in an overachieving family, George W. Bush had never held a job for more than a year when he entered the congressional race in Midland, TX in 1978. Bush lost in the general election. Just 22 years later, he was the 43rd President of the United States.

1 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul B. Poetzsch on March 8, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Supposedly written for high school students it rather reads like a book written by a juvenile. This re-write of history is filled with slang and slander and lacking in truth,

Clarke Rountree sights every president Bush hater. There is no effort to construct a fair or informative handling of this president's administration.
After reading this book you will better understand why our children are so poorly educated in history.
