George W. Gets $7 Million for Book

Now that he's not "running the country," George W. Bush is "writing" a book, tentatively titled Decision Points. Unlike a traditional memoir, the Daily Beast says the book will focus on twelve difficult personal and professional decisions Bush made over the course of his life, including giving up drinking and picking Dick Cheney as his vice president. The rumors suggest Bush got $7 million for the book, which is scheduled for a 2010 release by Crown, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group. Bush told reporters: “I want people to understand the environment in which I was making decisions. I want people to get a sense of how decisions were made and I want people to understand the options that were placed before me.”
