I have always been intrigued by the Bush dynasty, and this is a lot to swallow. I am one of the many that knew of some of their history, but this blows the lid off and then some. The author tirelessly dug into areas of the Bush family dealing back to the one who started it all. If everything is as the author writes is true who then you honestly trust in Washington these days. There seemed to be cracks in their association with the "Skull And Bones" of which read about several years prior. This is and should be read by everyone that seeks the truth about our elected officials. Thanks for writing this wonderful book Alfred D. Smith

Roger Stone used to be a Bush follower/fan/helpmate. Now he has written a book that uncovers a plethora of family "secrets" that are more than a bit troubling to this interested participant in our political system. The book is a scathing summary of the way the Bush family has achieved wealth and power and more to the point, an accounting of the MANY crimes that have supposedly occurred with their oversight and within their domain.
Truthfully -- I don't know whether the book is all fact or just a mass of allegations -- some proven, some not proven. But if even 10% of the revelations are factual, it is clear that the Bush family and their pols are not the kind, empathetic people they appear to be. (I say that, even though I have been an ardent Barbara Bush fan for many years.)
For example, Stone provides substantial documentation that the Bush fortune was generated through treason -- when Prescott Bush (George W H's father) illegally sold arms to the Russians in the early 1900's, used free slave labor in this German-based steel mills in the 1930's and pocketed tens of millions while supplying the Reich with all manner of armaments prior to and during WWII.
There is also much prose devoted to the premise that George W. H. (President #41) with the help of Oliver Stone and others, actually escalated drug use in this country by illegally importing cocaine and heroin; using the profits from sales in the US to fund the Contras. George W (#43) is/will be known for starting unnecessary wars that cost the US trillions and produced no reasonably good outcome -- all to line the pockets of his war-industry cronies (bankers and industrialists).
At times, I didn't know whether to be scared, angry or just apathetic about what I heard. Our political system today is such a mess -- and it seems, this is nothing new; it being described as just as bad all the way back to the turn of the century when the US began choosing "guns" over "butter."
Despite the terror it evoked at times, I thoroughly enjoyed this work. It is a worthy listen.

This book is well written and the narration excellent. I already had an inkling that the Bush family were not particularly nice people - selfish, narcissistic and ruthless. However, some of the allegations made in this book are sickening and depraved. The fact they have not sued, I think speaks volumes. Highly recommended but not for the faint hearted.
