(CNN) -- Former President George W. Bush is writing a book focusing on defining decisions he's made in his personal and political life, a publishing house announced Thursday.
The book, tentatively titled "Decision Points," is to be published in fall 2010, according to the Crown Publishing Group. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
The book will focus on about 12 important decisions made by the former president. Topics will include his decision to run for president, his choice of his closest advisers, the September 11 terrorist attacks, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, his response to Hurricane Katrina, the forming of his stem cell research policy, his decision to quit drinking, how he found faith and his relationships with his father, mother, siblings and wife.
"I am spending time on the book every day," Bush was quoted saying in a news release. "My goal is to bring the reader inside the Oval Office for the most consequential moments of my personal and political life.
"I look forward to painting a vivid picture of the information I had, the principles I followed, and the decisions I made," Bush said.

lol...Clinton’s should have been scratch and sniff. Obama’s will have a red cover, but it will be empty...like his suit.
it’s a little late to defend yourself now Bush.
What a pathetic joke to make.
My eyes are feeling with tears . God Bless You President Bush . “W” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are it MFer;-)))))0
In your a..
Imagine that, not a word about the single domestic issue he fought hardest and longest for in his eight years as President of the United States: The Mexican government and their illegal aliens.
Why don’t you join the Democrat’s boards, sites, posting areas?
People such as you are the reason we have Barack Hussein Obama in office now.
Most of all, you’re offensive.
1 No Child Left Behind
2 Trillion Dollar Medicare Drug Bill
3 Campaign Finance Reform
4 Harriet Miers
5 Immigration Reform
6 Trillion Dollar Bail Out of Banks and Wall Street
7 Nationalization of AIG
Title to be:
“Teddy Kennedy and Me”
“How I screwed the Republican Base and elected Obama”
A “How Not To....” book could be very instructional.
Wrong! The reason we have Obama is because Bush laid the groundwork for a move toward socialism. Bush had four years of a republican Congress and what did he push? NCLB, prescription drugs, amnesty, etc. The country was leaning left and he did nothing to push it back to the right.
Oh, and don't blame the media. Bush had the tallest, biggest bully pulpit on earth and he failed to use it.
People like you should really read and understand how Bush used "conservatism" to push socialist ideas and the country simply said, 'Heck, if the leader of the GOP is going that way too, it must be right."
A good number of the complaints about Bush are legit, but this one doesn't hold water.
I understand they’re already putting together the Obama library and some of the books haven’t even been colored in!
Great, can’t wait to read it!
Surely Pres. Bush will win a grammy for the spoken word version of his book just like both the Clintons and Obama.
