George W. Bush's Decision Points to be Released November 9
Posted on April 26, 2010
Crown Publishers will publish George W. Bush's memor, Decision Points on November 9, 2010. Crown says the memoir will be centered on the fourteen most critical and historic decisions in the life and public service of the 43rd President of the United States. The announcement was made by Tina Constable, Vice President, Publisher, Crown Publishers.
President Bush has given virtually no interviews or public speeches since leaving the oval office. Crown says that is because he has spent nearly every day writing Decision Points. Crown calls the book, "a strikingly personal and candid account revealing how and why he made the defining decisions in his consequential presidency and personal life."
Some of the incidents and events President Bush will discuss in the book include the hotly contested 2000 election, the hours aboard Air Force One on 9/11, the war in Iraq, the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan and Iran. The former President offers details about his decision to quit drinking, his discovery of faith, and his relationships with his family. Crown says President Bush will also discuss his flaws and mistakes as well as his achievements.
The hardcover edition of Decision Points will have an MSRP of $35. A cloth-bound, signed, and numbered limited edition of 1,000 copies, priced at $350, is also planned. Former President Bush will also be embarking on a national book tour.
