Veteran political reporter Barnes provides an insider's view of how Bush's unique presidential style and bold reforms are dramatically remaking the country--and, indeed, the world. In the process, Barnes shows, the president is shaking up Washington and reshaping the conservative movement. Barnes has gained extraordinary access to the Bush administration, conducting rare one-on-one interviews with Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, and many other close presidential advisers. Barnes shows how Bush acts as an "insurgent force" in the nation's capital; how he is redefining conservatism for a new era; how he has revolutionized American foreign policy--and how his crusade for democracy would have been anathema to Bush himself only five years ago; when and why he decided to go into Iraq, even knowing that he was putting his future at risk; how he routinely defies conventional wisdom--and why he usually wins.--From publisher description.… (mais)

Rebel-in-Chief holds few surprises. I like Fred Barnes and have often found him to be quite insightful, but I find little more than hero worship in this book. It's not that I disagree with Barnes' characterization of Bush as a revolutionary republican; it's that Barnes doesn't really seem to question whether that might be a good or bad thing. On the other hand, Barnes is clearly a bright and fine writer. ( )

While I have a deep appreciation for George W Bush as President, this book is quite a bit over-the-top, and even has information that is somewhat suspicious to this reader. ( )

Fred Barnes is a Fox television news analyst. He interviewed President George W. Bush and his top officials to report on the ways the Bush administration is using what he calls radical conservatism to effect change in the United States. This book is well written and covers foreign policy and faith-based initiatives. I will let you make up your own mind, but I will say that this book is an interesting read. ( )

Yes I voted for him and if given the chance to vote for him I would do so again. I do have doubts and criticisms; however, its mostly because I think he is too liberal and not conservative enough. That said, this book is an interesting look at some of the features that distinguish Bush from previous Presidencies. A friendly look at the President. ( )
