Bush, Jr. himself, this stunning work is the definitive account of how and why the United States went to war with Iraq for a second time. Listeners are treated to rare, behind-the-scenes glimpses into the workings of the Bush Administration-the picture that emerges reveals conviction and determination, but also haste and questionable judgment.

Theodore 'Theo' Decker was thirteen years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day, a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch.
