A collection of stories, advice, and self-deprecating wit from former first lady and current "first mom" Barbara Bush - the perfect Mother's Day gift!
The wife of one president, the mother of another, and a direct descendant of our fourteenth president, Franklin Pierce, Barbara Bush has lived a life immersed in the world of politics.
Yet she has captured the hearts of the American people by remaining down-to-earth, genuine, and by demonstrating a remarkable ability to poke fun at herself and the trappings of high office.
Over the years Barbara Bush's wit and wisdom have amused, enlightened, and touched even the most jaded among us-- Republicans and Democrats alike.
With a mix of recollections from a political life, grandmotherly advice, and charming humor-- on speaking to the National Association of Plastic Surgeons: "I was scared to death. I thought they were going to rush the stage!"--FIRST MOM demonstrates why the nation first fell in love with Barbara Bush, and why we continue to adore her today.
The book also includes a special-edition DVD of the A&E Biography "Barbara Bush: First Mom," which brings some of these delightful quotes and stories to life.
