There are few days that we remember exactly where we were when. It is amazing that one president should have so many in their presidency. George W. Bush’s book, Decision Points, takes us inside the major events and details the decision- making process that occurred.
From Katrina, to 9/11, President Bush was part of American history. He was accused of racism (what he calls the lowest point of his presidency). He was lauded and able to stand up to terrorists. These eight years of American history contain some of the most pivotal times and decisions for the future.
This would be a great book to start today on July 4th.
Disclosure: I checked this book out from the San Antonio Public Library. This is my opinion and not that of the publishers.
- Some decisions have to be made quickly without the ability to double check. Especially if the person (Sadaam Hussein) is determined to avoid looking weak at all costs.
- Actions create perceptions. Perceptions define people’s reality whether you like it or not.
- Learn from all people whether they agree with you or not. Often times, bipartisanship can create better solutions.
