About the Author

A longtime correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, he is currently a fellow in residence at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. He lives in Washington, D.C.


"[Mann weaves] extensive interviewing and archival research to produce insightful analyses and fresh perspectives on our own times.... George W. Bush is also the relatively rare book about our 43rd president that could be read appreciatively by both supporters and detractors.... Mann adopts an almost studied neutrality, adhering for the most part to the unbiased tone of the newspaper reporter." --The Washington Post

"[The American Presidents Series] offers brisk biographies of each president in crisp, straightforward prose, a formula Mann follows with precision." --The Christian Science Monitor

"The latest volume in the American Presidents series meets its goal of providing a concise yet thorough biography of the 43rd president. Mann's claim that Bush's tenure 'was, by any standard, one of the most consequential presidencies in American history' is made from a balanced assessment of the facts." --Publishers Weekly

"An insightful biography" --Kirkus Reviews

"[Bush's tenure] occurred 'at a critical juncture in American history'.... As president, that critical juncture overtook him, first and foremost on 9/11 but as fatefully later with Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 financial crash...A sober overview." --Booklist
