The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty

by

The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the First Lady of unauthorized, tell-all biography, this is the first real inside-look at the most powerful — and secretive — family in the world. From Senator Prescott Bush's alcoholism, to his son George Herbert Walker Bush's infidelities, to George Walker Bush's religious conversion, shady financial deals, and military manipulations, Kitty Kelley captures the portrait of a family that has whitewashed its own story almost out of existence.

Review:

"This is a story of power, sex and betrayal — but mostly of power." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Kelley's account of the rise and fall of the Bush family is both inspirational and cautionary. She convincingly shows that good looks, energy, athleticism, ambition, felicitous marriages and social networking can compensate for intellectual ordinariness." The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"A thoroughly researched piece of work. Ms. Kelley clearly devoured and digested the extant literature on the family." New York Times

Review:

"Kelley nails the evidence and, although the secretive Bush family will not like it, demonstrates beyond doubt what the American press dared not print." The Guardian

Synopsis:

As the Bush family has risen to dominance, so, too, they have been master orchestrators of their own public image, acting and operating under the shield of privacy their money and status have always afforded them — until now.
