Fomer US President George W Bush joined ex-US President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama today in an exclusive club — Presidential authors who have sold at least a million copies of their books.

The Crown Publishing Group announced that Mr Bush's memoir, Decision Points, had sold more than 1.1m copies. It was released on November 9.

Over 135,000 copies were sold as e-books. Mr Clinton's My Life and two Obama books, The Audacity Of Hope and Dreams From My Father, have also sold at least a million copies.

All three Presidents were published by divisions of Random House.
