Cover of Decision Points

Say what you like about George W. Bush's intelligence, but he's done one thing you probably haven't — write a book. Or most of it anyway.

Ryan Grim at the Huffington Post dropped a bombshell on Friday:

"[The book includes] worn-out anecdotes from previously published memoirs written by his subordinates, from which Bush lifts quotes word for word, passing them off as his own recollections. He took equal license in lifting from nonfiction books about his presidency or newspaper or magazine articles from the time. Far from shedding light on how the president approached the crucial "decision points" of his presidency, the clip jobs illuminate something shallower and less surprising about Bush's character: He's too lazy to write his own memoir."
