Reading 2009- The War Within by Bob Woodward

Cover of Cover via Amazon

Typical of me once again I am catching up on my reading posts. During all my traveling I finished several books and will spread out posts about them over the next couple weeks or so. Many of them came from the library but sometimes I want to own a book to read again and find a good selection at Amazon books. My intent which I seem to fail at so miserably at is to finish a book and then post about it and move on to the next book.

I read The War Within by Bob Woodward hoping to learn more about behind the scenes planning and policy making in the Bush Administration and I certainly did. It was not an easy read, informative but not entertaining but then I doubt the author meant it to be. This book covers two years of the Bush White House, from 2006 to 2008, with an emphasis on the Iraq War, the high level decision makers, politicians and military involved during those years.

To this day I still wonder what it was about George Bush that caused Americans to elect the man president not once, but twice. I did not end my confusion by reading this book.
