Based on interviews with more than a hundred sources and four hours of exclusive interviews with the president, Bush at War reveals Bush's sweeping, almost grandiose, vision for remaking the world. "I'm not a textbook player, I'm a gut player," the president said.
Woodward's virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president and his advisers, three of whom might themselves have made it to the presidency. In Bush at War, Bob Woodward once again delivers a reporting tour de force.

An excellent book
A very well written book. Not biased in any way. Not right wing nor left wing but an account of the 1st 100 days after September 11th. The book itself is more than a look into the Whitehouse at the time. It is truely a tribute to the people "on the ground". CIA, Special Forces, etc. To most American's, this is an untold story. There were many unknowns in the Whitehouse. The story is about an incredible cast of characters like Powell, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice, and other unknown (and still classified unknown) people who have kept this country safe for many years.

Very interesting read ...
From the cover and the title, I feared that this book had a GW bias. I didn't need to worry. Here, Woodward proves he can still be a powerful, objective writer. He has interviewed the likes of GW, Powell, Rice and others, and from those interviews, he has captured their thoughts and actions so that parts of this book read more like a fictional book with strong narrative. Without any apparent judgement, he has also captured some of the conflicts within the Oval Office in such a way that you can judge them for yourself. And I was amazed at the currentness of the information provided. This book starts on 9/11 and follows the War on Terrorism through to October 2002 with the start of the current efforts against Iraq. Excellent, informative reading.
