The Comeback Kid… George W. Bush Sells As Many Books in One Month As Clinton Did in 6 Years
‘Decision Points’ is flying off the shelves.
George W. Bush sold over 2 million copies in one month – as many as Bill Clinton sold in 6 years.
It may be a monstrous success but that doesn’t mean the state-run media will like it.

What a comeback.
The Daily Mail reported:
For someone who mangled words on a regular basis, it’s an impressive feat.
Former U.S. President George W Bush’s memoir has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November – and it’s not even in paperback yet.
‘Decision Points’, published both in hardcover and e-book form, is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says.
By contrast, former president Bill Clinton’s memoir, ‘My Life’, has logged sales of 2.2million copies since it was first published in 2004.
A spokesman for Crown called the performance remarkable.
He claimed he could not think of any other hardcover nonfiction books in 2010 that had sold even one million copies, much less two.
In ‘Decision Points,’ Mr Bush recounts the inner workings of the White House and his administration following the September 11 attacks, including decisions that led to the wars in Afghanistan in Iraq.
He recounts parts of his childhood, speaks lovingly of his family and wife, and wonders about how history will judge him.
