As the presidential historian Jeffrey Engel reveals in this hard-to-pause history, behind closed doors from the Oval Office to the Kremlin, George H. W. Bush rose to the occasion brilliantly. Distrusted by such key allies as Margaret Thatcher and dismissed as too cautious by the press, Bush had the experience and the wisdom to use personal, one-on-one diplomacy with world leaders. Bush knew when it was essential to rally a coalition to push Iraq out of Kuwait. He managed to help unify Germany while strengthening NATO.
Based on unprecedented access to previously classified documents and interviews with all of the principals, When the World Seemed New is a riveting, fly-on-the-wall account of a president with his hand on the tiller, guiding the nation through a pivotal time and setting the stage for the 21st century.

Nice narrator with annoying mouth sounds
I had to end this early since the story, though incredibly compelling, was distracted by the end list saliva problem and noisemaking with the narrator’s mouth… I’ll finish reading it or get a different version, but this is the first audible I’ve always listened to you where the mouth sounds made by a narrators’s swallowing and mouth sounds was incessant an annoying… Can’t you edit these things out?? It’s unfortunate because the story was great otherwise, as were the narrators voice skills.
