_______________ 'If you read one book about George W. Bush and his presidency, this should be it' - Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and Blink 'Precisely because he does not think George W. Bush is a joke, Jacob Weisberg has been able to write a very witty and deeply penetrating profile of him' - Christopher Hitchens 'The epic failure of the Bush Administration is a story for the ages ... a beautifully written and erudite book, hilarious at times, a joy to read' - Joe Klein, author of Primary Colors _______________ A sharp and original look at one of the most controversial presidents in American history The Bush Tragedy opens up the black box of the plane-crash presidency of George W. Bush to examine the political wreckage. How did a man of such evident flaws and limited abilities find himself in the position of the most powerful man in the world? How and why did half of America fall for Bush before falling out with him? Weisberg analyses Bush through familial, personal, political and historical relationships, and examines how his idolisation of Reagan and his devout Christianity led to widely condemned policy decisions that have fundamentally changed the role and position of the US. The Bush Tragedy is a razor-sharp character study of one of the most controversial presidents in American history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Bush Tragedy is political drama, family history and psychological insight in dazzling combination. If you read one book about George W. Bush and his presidency, this should be it' * Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point and Blink *
'Precisely because he does not think George W. Bush is a joke, Jacob Weisberg has been able to write a very witty and deeply penetrating profile of him' * Christopher Hitchens *
'The epic failure of the Bush Administration is a story for the ages and Jacob Weisberg - with a clever assist from William Shakespeare - has written a scorching, powerful and entirely plausible account of this perverse family saga. Not only that - it's a beautifully written and erudite book, hilarious at times, a joy to read' * Joe Klein, author of Primary Colors *
