George Bush's book tour comes to the southland

November 30, 2010 |  4:40 pm


Former President George W. Bush found a warm response Monday in Lake Forest, Calif., located in the Republican stronghold of Orange County. Bush appeared at Saddleback Church with pastor Rick Warren to discuss his memoir, "Decision Points." Mitchell Landsberg reports:

Bush conceded that he was "shamelessly peddling my book," a memoir of his two terms in office called "Decision Points." He joked that reaction to it has been "slight shock... A lot of people didn't think I could read, much less write."

George Bush's "Decision Points" is currently at No. 2 on the L.A. Times bestseller list, behind Keith Richards' memoir "Life."
