    A wonderful book that takes you through the life of George Bush and his faith in God It stirred up a few emotions in me I cheered him on, then I cried, then I got very upset at him I will say there were a few times that I wanted to just grab him by his shoulders and shake him, but to understand what I mean you would have to read it All in all, it was very interesting to read about his life.
