Jon Meacham’s memoir of George H. W. Bush will suffice for the one the former president never wrote himself.

George and Barbara Bush have provided extraordinary cooperation, including access to their diaries, for an account of his life and presidency that has depth and value. And there is plenty of dish: Bush’s distaste for 1988 Republican rival Bob Dole (‘a no good son of a bitch’), Nancy Reagan’s dislike of Barbara Bush, Vice President Dan Quayle’s machinations to stay on the ticket in 1992.”
