George W Bush’s publishers are promising “gripping, never-before-heard details” about 9/11 as well as personal issues such as his alcoholism when his memoirs are released on November 9. Crown Publishers, a division of Random House, also confirmed yesterday that the former US President’s book will be published under its original working title Decision Points.
Bush has said that the account will not be a memoir in the traditional sense but will instead recall key decisions in both his presidency and personal life. The book’s cover, which was also unveiled yesterday, shows the then-President striding past the White House’s Rose Garden Colonnade, in a dark suit and carrying a presidential briefing book (above).

Bush’s account of his frequently controversial eight years in the White House is highly anticipated, not least because he has given virtually no interviews or public speeches since leaving the Oval Office 15 months ago. Instead, his publishers claimed yesterday, “[Bush] has spent almost every day writing Decision Points”.
Crown Publishers – whose latest book is Kitty Kelley’s controversial biography of Oprah Winfrey – are calling Bush’s memoirs “a strikingly personal and candid account revealing how and why he made the defining decisions in his consequential presidency and personal life.”
