In 41: A Portrait of My Father, George W. Bush describes his father's eventful and remarkable three decades in politics--from the painful defeats in the Texas Senate races of 1964 and 1970, to his unlikely service as a diplomat and CIA director, to his eight years as Ronald Reagan's Vice President, and finally to his election as President in 1988. During his four years in the Oval Office, George H.W. Bush guided the nation through the peaceful end of the Cold War, oversaw the liberation of Panama and Kuwait, and made tough economic decisions that laid the foundation for future prosperity.
More than a biography, George W. Bush reflects on his father's influence at his own personal and political crossroads and reveals how George H.W. Bush's quiet, steady emotional support carried him through difficult times. 41 is a stirring tribute to an inspiring father and great American. Hardcover.

Forty-three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bushs life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President. The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family. In addition, George W. Bush discusses his fathers influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term Presidency.
