内容紹介

5 CDs /approx. 5 hours

The Bush family represents one of America's most formidable political dynasties--beginning with the election of Prescott Bush to the U.S. senate in 1948 and continuing through 1988, when George W. Bush won a landslide re-election as Governor of Texas and his younger brother Jeb Bush was elected Governor of Florida.  Of course, the generational line between these men of former President George Bush, whose accomplishments have been a daunting factor in the lives of his sons.

Veteran Texas reporter and long-time Bush observer Bill Minutaglio has written the most authoritative and insightful work to date on the First Son.  Minutaglio interviewed Bush's friends and family, his old drinking buddies and Yale classmates, associates from his days as an oilman and owner of the Texas Rangers, and the politicians who have seen Bush up close in action.  Minutaglio even gained access to George W. Bush himself.

Written with authority, verve and a flair for the wild ways of Texas, First Son will be the political story of 2000.

レビュー

Advance praise for First Son

"First Son is one of those very rare nonfiction books that captures the trifecta--wonderfully readable, impeccably reported, and revealing. Bill Minutaglio has captured that insane and marvelous state of mind called Texas. He has also captured the ups and downs of what it is like to grow up in the shadow of a very, very famous father. Surely an important political book on the man who may well be our next president, but also a personal and poignant one."
--Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and A Prayer for the City


"First Son, the first biography of George W. Bush, is thorough, colorful, revealing, and compelling--certain to serve as an essential political bible for the 2000 presidential campaign."
--David Maraniss, Washington Post reporter and author of First in His Class


"First Son is an intriguing and illuminating portrait of the way an American family has wielded power and influence in business and politics for three generations. Any family--nuclear or otherwise--that wants to learn how the game is really played should study the Bush dynasty."
--Mario Puzo, author of The Godfather and The Last Don

( first, please see the Editorial Reviews and Table of Contents above, as well as on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk )
Relatively comprehensive account on the life of George W, including that of his political dynasty of a family, and of his own--both before marriage, and with his wife and children. Stops just before he came to the presidency, therefore able to sidestep the question of whether he is a bad or a good president. As all biographies should be--narratives before commentaries.
Neither fawning nor overly-critical.
Which is perhaps what leaves it wanting, if one must f

5つ星のうち 3.0 Detailed Bio - Unconvincing Thesis 2006/12/29
投稿者 Steve Fast - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Minutaglio provides a detailed life of George W. Bush, from his birth in New Haven Connecticut to his first election as governor of Texas in 1994. (After that he only describes a few events from his eight years as governor and provides a brief afterword about the 2000 presidential campaign that, strangely, concludes without revealing the results of the Supreme Court decision that finalized the election.)

Yet he fails to demonstrate that W. is only, or even largely, the product of the Bush dynasty. He fails to explain why Bush follows more in the new conservative steps of Reagan than in the moderate, non-ideological path of his father Bush 41. He doesn't mention neoconservatism at all, although Condi Rice is mentioned in the last pages. Yes, he does describe important elements of continuity in the dynasty (education at Andover, Yale, and Harvard; work in the West Texas oil fields; and common political experiences), but he fails to examine the very important differences between the two men, differences that may prove to be even more important.

The book also overlooks the role of Bush's faith in God. He describes his 1986 decision to quit drinking as an effort to avoid embarrassing his father and calls his conversion experience an attempt to reach out to the Christian right. For someone like Bush who has been the most open president about his faith since William McKinley, this is a major oversight. Minutaglio should have explained how and why his faith was important to him and his political career.

As a biography the book is fair and even-handed, describing Bush's wayward years, his maturing, and his achievements in business and politics. It provides good insight into how Bush developed as a man and politician. But it stops as Bush begins to emerge on the national stage as Texas governor.

Minutaglio's writing is also repetitive, narrating the same incidents and characterizations at different places in the book. At times it seems disjointed, and he does a poor job of explaining where certain action occurs. But there are also some really funny stories, mostly at Bush's expense, in the book (e.g. the recycled Christmas cards and the cattle guard's uniform).

Overall, a decent and impartial biography of W.'s pre-gubernatorial life, although the indifferent writing makes it a bit plodding to read at times.
5つ星のうち 4.0 First Son 2012/4/11

It seems to be the current trend for anyone in national politics to be as polarizing as possible, with half the country thinking they are great, and the other half hating them. This is certainly the case for George W. Bush. The 9/11 attacks have changed the course of his presidency considerably, but it is still essential to get some perspective on his pre-presidential years, and how he coped with his dynastic legacy. This book is perfect for that, not only because it has plenty of detail about his relationship with his family, but because it's conversational tone is very fair minded. The author examines all sides of President Bush, and while he does not shy away from Bush's failings, he also does not indulge in speculation or gossip. The author's casual story-telling style allows the reader to really get to know Bush, but without the more prurient feelings one gets from a psycho-analytical study. It only goes to the inauguration, and it does not offer any sort of in-depth policy analysis of the President's time as governor of Texas, but it is a quick read, and a good character study.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Good introduction to the candidate 1999/10/19
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
With a style unlike other quicky biographies of public figures, this book gives the curious a look at George W. Bush's life and some discussion of his policy. Party hacks will be disappointed, as the book is short of scandal or on sympathetic appraisal. It does give a good primer on how the scandal stories have never risen above the level of uncomfirmed rumor. One seeking an indepth discussion of policy too, may be disappointed, as the book is light on Bush's accomplishments as governor of Texas. But it is an unbiased analysis of the man's life and his rise to power. I'm sure both Bush's campaign and those running against him will have plenty of good and bad to spread around in the next year. This is a good place to look at the man's life.

5つ星のうち 5.0 well balanced, well written, well thought out 1999/11/3
投稿者 Mark - (Amazon.com)

If you are looking for tabloid like Bush Bashing, don't look here (you might try The Father's Son, that one is quite good at trying to instill some what outdated class war fare dribble). This particular book is extremely well balanced. If you love the Bush clan, or hate them, you will find something within. Personally, I found it an insightful and interesting tale of one of our nations most powerful pollitical families. Is George W qualified to be President? Well that is a question that only time will answer. My thoughts are he is as qualified as the guy we have recently given the nod to twice, except, maybe George will actually care more for the country than himself. He does seem to learn and grow. Now that would be a pleasant change. However one thing is for certain, the Bush family is a political dynasty (now more impressive than the Kennedys) and the people of Texas sincerely love both of their Georges.

形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This biography ought to be read by everyone, "W" supporter or not. It's insightful, clear, colorful and gives a great sense of background about this man's early years. Minutaglio is a real WRITER who doesn't have any apparent political agenda other than giving readers the information they need to make their own decisions. Since it looks like the man may be president, this book will -- without doubt -- become THE info. source. I've lent it to several friends who also praise it highly. If it were out in paperback, they would have bought copies for themeselves...
