ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's views on the political memoirs of U.S. politicians such as George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and Barack Obama. He says that the style of "Decision Points," by Bush shows Bush's keenness of observation. He adds that the "Known and Unknown," by Rumsfeld highlights the nature of uncertainty and decision-making process. He discusses Obama's "Dreams From My Father" in light of Jack Cashill's "Deconstructing Obama," which doubts the memoir as ghost-written by Bill Ayers.
