George W. Bush's memoir in the works
by UPI

DALLAS -- Former U.S. President George W. Bush's memoir will include defining moments such as how he found faith and how he chose his running mate, aides say.

A contract with Crown Publishing, a division of Random House, was to be announced Thursday, Politico reported. Crown also published U.S. President Barack Obama's books.

The tentatively titled "Decision Points" traces the 43rd president's early life leading up to his decision to run for president of the United States, with the final chapter centering on the financial crisis.

Aides said Bush, the eldest son of the 41st president, George H.W. Bush, works between two and three hours each morning, writing 1,000 to 1,500 words.

"He wanted to do something different -- less conventional and chronological, not an exhaustive history," one person told the Washington publication.

The book is to include chapters on the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks; the decisions to send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan; the response to Hurricane Katrina; his commitment to a global fight against AIDS; and his relationships with his wife and family in addition to his choosing Dick Cheney to be his vice president.

"My goal is to bring the reader inside the Oval Office for the most consequential moments of my personal and political life," Bush said through his publisher.
