Chapter 1, page 7: "Reporters frequently ask Jeb and me whether Dad gives us political advice. I always laugh inside when I hear that question. I think they envision the Bush family growing up, gathered at my father's knee, discussing America's role in the world or the impact of monetary policy on our economy. As Dad would put it, 'Didn't happen.' We were more likely outside playing baseball, basketball, or football. We discussed current events, just as any family does. But at the Bush family dinner table, the kids were usually most worried about whether Marvin would eat his vegetables so we could all have dessert."
