George W. Bush to release memoir on Nov. 9

NEW YORK, April 26 (BestGrowthStock) – George W. Bush, whose U.S.
presidency was marked by the Sept. 11 attacks and the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, will release a memoir on Nov. 9, his
publisher said on Monday.

The book, “Decision Points,” will center on 14 decisions
Bush made in his eight years as president, including “his flaws
and mistakes, as well as his historic achievements,” The Crown
Publishing Group said in a statement.

Bush will do a national tour to promote the book, which
will sell for $35, said Crown, a Random House imprint, which is
part of the German media giant Bertelsmann AG [BERT.UL].

The former Texas governor left the White House in January
2009 with one of the lowest presidential approval ratings in
history, with the unpopular wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and
the financial crisis weighing on his legacy.

“President Bush brings readers inside the Texas Governor’s
Mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election;
aboard Air Force One on 9/11 in the gripping hours after
America’s most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; inside
the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in
Iraq,” said the publisher.

Bush also writes about “his historic and controversial
decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina,
Afghanistan, Iran, and other issues that have shaped the first
decade of the 21st century.”

The book will also discuss Bush’s decision to quit
drinking, his discovery of faith and family relationships.
