Summary, etc.:
"Drawing extensively on exclusive access and interviews with both Bush presidents, Updegrove reveals for the first time their influences and perspectives on each other's presidencies; their views on family, public service, and America's role in the world; and their unvarnished thoughts on Donald Trump, and the radical transformation of the Republican Party he now leads."-- From the publisher.
Updegrove tracks the two Bush presidents from their formative years through their post-presidencies. He examines the failed presidential candidacy of Jeb Bush, which derailed the Bush presidential dynasty. Updegrove reveals for the first time their influences and perspectives on each other's presidencies; their views on family, public service, and America's role in the world; and their unvarnished thoughts on Donald Trump, and the radical transformation of the Republican Party he now leads.
