Close-Up: The Mind of George W. Bush: "The decisions—about Iraq, about Korea, about fighting terrorism—that confront this U.S. President may turn out to be as momentous as any an American leader has faced in decades.

"What capacities does President Bush bring to his decision-making? What limitations hamper his judgment? The author, a journalist and a historian, speaks with people close to the President and probes his private life and public career.

"Bush is, he concludes, focused, quick to make decisions, persevering, a good judge of character, and yes, 'smart enough' to be an effective President. The unknown quantity is imagination—the imagination to foresee consequences, the imagination to be a wartime President."
