Washington, Apr.27 (ANI): Former US President George W Bush will admit to his "flaws and mistakes" in a forthcoming memoir.

According to The Telegraph, the memoir will focus on 14 key decisions made during his eight years in office (2001-2009).

According to Crown Publishing, Decision Points, will offer "gripping, never-before-heard detail" about key events such as the disputed 2000 election, the September 11 attacks and the launch of the war on Iraq.

Aided by a former White House speech-writer Chris Michel, Bush will also reveal his decisions on the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, Afghanistan and Iran, as well as discussing his battle with alcohol, his discovery of faith and family relationships.

Since leaving the White House in January 2009, Bush has dedicated most of his time to the book, which will be released this autumn.

The cover features a photo of then-President Bush alone with his thoughts, standing in the Rose Garden colonnade of the White House, wearing a dark suit and holding a briefing book.

During his presidency, Bush was known for his unapologetic approach, especially regarding the Iraq War, and for taking pride in his decisiveness. He left office amid a collapsing economy and the lowest approval ratings any president has ever received since polling began. (ANI)
