"Bush's collected letters in this book offer readers not only a
better understanding of Bush as president, politician, diplomat,
and head of the CIA, but also his thoughts and feelings as a father
and husband, thanks to the many personal letters that are
included."--Christian Science Monitor
"Who knew that beneath George Bush's buttoned-up propriety pulsed the warm heart of a prolific and occasionally poetic writer with wacky sense humor?"--People
"Worth it's weight in gold....the new edition of "All the Best" is a valuable update of the life of an honorable American leader. It captures the reflections of a man who has scaled the highest mountain of political success -- then moved beyond ambition and discovered peace and fulfillment in simpler things in life: his friends, his family and a genuine love of the country he once led."--Washington Post
