I am not writing a review of this book yet as I just purchased the Kindle version today; but when I checked the hardcover editions last night, they were all priced around $3 or $4 dollars each. Today they are all $30 or $40 each....shame on you, booksellers, capitalizing on this great woman's death to sell your books...I really wanted a hardcover, but at least I have my Kindle and do not have to bow your greed.

This memoir is a perfect blend of autobiographical information in the Bush political life, and the characteristic humor that defines the former First Lady. Mrs. Bush takes the reader through her early days, her courtship with the future President, and their lives all the way through the White House years. The book is part diary entry, part commentary, part, autobiography. It is a must read for any history buff, Bush fan, or any person who enjoys a light hearted read.

It is most enjoyable, as she has apparently kept a diary over the years as to people she met and places they traveled to when he was Ambassador to the UN, and special representative to China, and RNC Chair, and she moved so many times!. She surely kept busy with their five childen. Accompanied by a woman they employed to help with the children who were very small, who stayed with the family for many ,many years) Barbara drove back and forth from Houston to Kennabuckport every summer to visit family. The details of the little daughter's bout with the cancer, leukemia, was sad, but they did everything they could to get her the very best medical treatment, taking her to Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute in NYC, but she did not live.
Of course, in their position, she had to entertain a great deal, and George was always inviting as many as 15-20 for dinner each Sunday after church, as he , needed to be "the diplomat" at all times, and it paid off in many ways for him, his family and the country. She loves to read, and can write very well, and one just wants to keep on reading chapter after chapter. I am about half way of the book, but it is quite informative about a family with political ties, great energy, and very close. Mrs. Bush is a very strong woman, has raised a remarkable family,and I recommend it heartily, but also it is just a good read. Thanks, Jo Ann Wine,M.D.

First Lady Barbara Bush left her own distinctive mark on the world. She adored her husband and family and contributed immensely to the great cause of literacy. The biggest fault I found with this book was the repeated references throughout to her "great" friends. It got a bit tiring to hear everyone described that way. I enjoy a long book, but this one could have used some editing. I don't care to read about every delicious meal she enjoyed. That said, there were many interesting anecdotes and colorful descriptions of her travels to foreign countries. I admire the lady.

I love this book! So interesting and informative and funny! I have had so many laugh-out-loud moments I can't believe it. She is so honest and tells everything, even the bad and sad times of her husband's congressional and presidential years. I wasn't crazy about George H.W. Bush before, but after reading this I have changed my mind about what a kind and conscientious man he was and is. A wonderful book worth reading about so many important people in politics and even celebrities they knew, and especially about their large and entertaining family. She teased her son George W. all through the book, and he enjoyed every minute of it; so did I. I have devoured every page.

This was a refreshing read with a woman who showed compassion and love for the people who entered her life. She was loyal, protective, combative, faithful, and caring to all who knew her. Her story reflects on several decades of life in America and she shows her humble and sincere gratitude for all that happened in her remarkable time in Washington. She introduces us to characters in Washington who are still walking the streets today. Love, faith, and trust are three remarkable words that envelop this book and describe this remarkable woman. It is a great way to remember her and the positive role she played in our country's history!!

As the wife of what some would call the "Last true gentleman president" (GHW Bush), and the mother of a US President (George W. Bush), this is a powerful lady with some things to say, and you should listen. Raising kids nowadays is not easy, Barbara Bush helps to put everything in perspective. She's nobody's fool and knows a thing or two. She's also quite funny.
A good read.
To be honest the initial reason I purchased this outstanding book was to illuminate more on the life and achievements of President George H. W. Bush whom I always admired since childhood. However,  by reading Barbara's remarkable life memoirs I discovered another, among many, more fundamental reason for the former President's appeal: the core values that both George and Barbara shared which if fully appreciated today I am sure would make the world a better place!
