W. Bush asked Doro to write this memoir, she contacted hundreds of his friends and associates- conducted scores of interviews with dignitaries including Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, and General Colin Powell- tapped the memories of family members, including her mother, her four brothers, and of course, her father himself- and collected information from the former presidents never-before-released files. Now for the first time, a complete portrait of George H. W. Bush emerges. Doro reveals her father as a young man courting his future wife, Barbara, and how the death of their first daughter brought them closer. Doro tells how they raised five children through much of her fathers long and storied career in public service, and offers details about this tenures as head of the Republication National Committee during Watergate, ambassador to the U.N., Americas liaison to China, and vice president for eight years under Ronald Reagan. Doro also provides an insiders look at how the 41st president dealt with crises and challenges, all while keeping his humor and personality intact, and how he still does so while aiding victims of the 2004 tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. She shows how he felt when two of his sons entered politics - and when his eldest made it to the top - and sheds new light on his friendship with former rival Bill Clinton.--BOOK JACKET.
