"The book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President," Crown Publishers said in a press release announcing the book.
Since leaving the White House in 2009 as a very unpopular figure, George W. Bush has retreated into a mostly private life. In addition to writing, he's been painting a lot, too. His portraits of world leaders were put on display in April to great fanfare.
George H.W. Bush turned 90 in June. He celebrated by jumping out of a helicopter in a parachute.
The book still needs a title. It will be released on Nov. 11, a week after the midterm elections.
