I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I began reading this book. I was pleasantly surprised to see how open President Bush was with the issues he addressed in Decision Points
. I was especially shocked with how forthcoming he was about the decision to go through with enhanced interrogation techniques.
While I definitely didn't agree with everything President Bush did during his Administration, I've come to respect the President more for the more important decision he discussed here. I'm now a bit more aware of all the divering viewpoints, and how stressful each of these decisions are. The content of this book definitely surprised me and I think most others, no matter your political viewpoints, will garner a better understanding of President Bush's approach to solving problems, and the context in which he made those decisions.
