Blackwell North Amer
The Right Man is the first inside account of a historic year in the Bush White House, by the presidential speechwriter credited with the phrase "axis of evil."
Frum worked with President Bush in the Oval Office, traveled with him aboard Air Force One, and studied him closely at meetings and events. He describes how Bush thinks - what this conservative president believes about religion, race, the environment, Jews, Muslims, and America's future. Frum takes us behind the scenes of one of the most secretive administrations in recent history, with revealing portraits of Karl Rove, Karen Hughes, Condoleezza Rice, and many others. Most significant, he tells the story of the transformation of George W. Bush: how a president whose administration began in uncertainty became one of the most decisive, successful, and popular leaders of our time.

A good attempt at a description of the real George W. Bush from someone who worked in Bush's presence but was not an insider.

Unfortunately, it only covers the very early years of his presidency, but does cover 9/11 and the contrast between Clinton/Bush Whitehouse order.
