London, Apr 26 (ANI): Former President George W Bush's book "Decision Points" which is not a traditional memoir but an account of key decisions in his life, will be released in November.

The publisher of the book "Decision Points: on Sunday unveiled its cover design and announced its release date.

The cover features a photo of then-President Bush alone with his thoughts, standing in the Rose Garden Colonnade, wearing a dark suit and holding a briefing book, his head turned slightly from the camera, The Telegraph reports.

Decision Points will give never-before-heard details on such historic events as the September 11, attacks and the 2000 presidential election along with Bush's decision to quit drinking, his relationship with his family and other personal details, according to Crown Publishers.

"Since leaving the Oval Office, President Bush has given virtually no interviews or public speeches about his presidency," Crown said in a statement.

"Instead, he has spent almost every day writing "Decision Points", a strikingly personal and candid account revealing how and why he made the defining decisions in his consequential presidency and personal life."

A publishing industry source familiar with the book said that Bush had completed a first draft and was editing the manuscript on a computer at his office in Dallas.

A former White House speechwriter, Chris Michel, is helping with research.

The book will have a list price of 35 dollars. One thousand signed, clothbound copies will be available, priced at 350 dollars each. (ANI)
