    DescriptionAmerica's forty-third president, George W. Bush, presided over eight of the most dramatic years in recent history, from the 9/11 attacks early in his administration to the worldwide economic crisis of 2008. By his side, recording every event from the momentous to the intimate was his personal White House photographer, Eric Draper. From a collection of nearly one million photographs, Draper has selected more than one hundred images of President Bush that portray both the public figure and the private man. Front Row Seat presents a compelling, behind-the-scenes view of the presidency of George W. Bush. Through Draper's lens, we follow Bush through moments of crisis that called for strong leadership, such as 9/11; emotional meetings with troops in war zones, wounded soldiers at home, and Katrina survivors; and happy, relaxed times with his wife Laura, daughters Barbara and Jenna, and parents President George H. W. and Barbara Bush. We also see Bush at work within his inner circle of trusted advisors, including Vice President Richard Cheney, National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Capturing moments that reveal the essence of the man, Front Row Seat is an irreplaceable portrait of George W. Bush.

    Review quote
    "Draper's particular advantage, though, comes with his reportorial pictures. A former Associated Press photographer who covered Bush's 2000 campaign, Draper has an eye for action... The reportorial pictures are most evocative in the long section on 9/11, when Draper had exclusive access to the president as events unfolded."--Massimo Calabresi, Time Magazine's Lightbox blog "Placing politics aside may prove harder for some then others, but if given the chance, the book presents a body of work that can't be found anywhere else. Draper seems comfortable to let others tip the scale one way or another in how the Bush legacy will be remembered. Instead, he presents a man that history is just starting to contextualize and allows for his images to speak for themselves."--Nathaniel Grann, The Washington Post "The pictures taken by Draper, the longest-serving White House photographer, show Mr Bush both at work with his inner circle of advisers and also in his private downtime with wife Laura and at his ranch in Crawford, Texas." - DailyMail.co.uk "...a wealth of never-before-seen photos ... Front Row Seat presents a compelling, behind-the-scenes view of the presidency of George W. Bush. Through Draper's lens, we follow Bush through moments of crisis that called for strong leadership, such as 9/11; emotional meetings with troops in war zones, wounded soldiers at home, and Katrina survivors; and happy, relaxed times with his wife Laura, daughters Barbara and Jenna, and parents President George H. W. and Barbara Bush.
