Crown has announced that George W. Bush's forthcoming memoir, Decision Points, will hit stands on November 9. The book, which the Random House unit is calling a "groundbreaking new brand of memoir," will explore the 14 most important decisions in the author's life. Decision Points will be available simultaneously in hardcover and e-book (as well as audio) and be priced at $35. Crown is also planning to publish 1,000 cloth-bound signed copies of the book, available at $350.
The book, Crown promises, not only explores Bush's personal life--from the discovery of his faith to his decision to stop drinking--but also pivotal moments in his political career and presidency, from the tense time before the 2000 election result were announced, to the moments in the Situation Room before the start of the Iraq war, to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The publisher says Bush "writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his historic achievements."
