bushbook.jpgToday The Random House imprint Crown announced that they will release Decision Points, a memoir by former President George W. Bush, on November 9. It will cost $35, and the publisher will issue 1,000 clothbound and signed copies costing $350 each.

Here’s more about the release, via the NY Times: “Crown said that Mr. Bush had given few speeches or interviews since leaving office, ‘instead, he has spent almost every day writing Decision Points.’ It added: ‘He writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his historic achievements.’ The book will be released in hardcover and in audio and e-book formats. Mr. Bush will also go on a national tour for the book.”
