HOUSTON, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Former U.S. President George W. Bush has authored a biography of his father, George H. W. Bush, another former White House occupant, it was announced Wednesday.

Crown Publishing Group said in a press release that the book, currently untitled, will be released in the United States and Canada in print and digital formats on Nov. 11 -- the Veterans Day holiday in the United States.

According to Crown, the book will cover Bush Senior's whole life, including his political career, role as CIA director, work in the Texas oil industry and service in the Navy during World War II, as well as his influence on Bush Junior's childhood and own political career.

"George H. W. Bush is a great servant, statesman, and father," George W. Bush said in a statement issued by Crown. "I loved writing the story of his life, and I hope others enjoy reading it."

Bush Junior's previous book, "Decision Points," is considered the bestselling presidential memoir of all time, selling over 3 million copies in the U.S. since its release in late 2010.

As the only father and son to have both won the presidency since John Adams and John Quincy Adams -- the second and the sixth presidents respectively -- George H.W. Bush, the 41st president, and George W. Bush, the 43rd president, occupy a unique position in recent U.S. history.

Bush Senior, who turned 90 in June, is one of the few presidents in modern times to have not written a memoir.
