Love him or hate him, he is back in the spotlight.

George W. Bush is pulling out all the stops in a major publicity blitz to promote his presidential memoirs.

In “Decision Points”, the former US leader defends his record in the White House.

Many with signed copies in Dallas don’t need any convincing.

“I just think it is a part of history that is important to me,” said Lezlie Goad, after waiting in line to meet the president at a bookshop. “He was a great president. I thought he made great decisions and wanted to support him and it was a neat experience.”

But not everyone is delighted at Dubya’s literary efforts and protesters gathered outside.

His defence of waterboarding has outraged critics.
A form of simulated drowning condemned by some as torture, Bush says it was key to preventing another 9/11 attack on the United States.
