A book written by former President George W. Bush about his father, George H.W. Bush, is set to hit bookstores Nov. 11.

The 300-page biography written by the younger Bush about his father, the 41st President, has not been given a title yet, Crown Publishers told The Associated Press this week.

Maya Mavjee, Crown’s publisher, said the book about the elder Bush will be “heartfelt, intimate, and illuminating," including details about the younger Bush’s childhood, the influence his father had on him, and why he decided to ultimately run for the highest political office in the U.S.

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

Crown Publishing also worked with George W. Bush on his memoir, “Decision Points,” released in November 2010. He thought of the biography about his father that same year and began writing it in 2012, the AP said. Crown plans to print an initial 1 million copies.

In an April 2013 interview with Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning," George W. Bush said his father has been a “role model for all of us,” referring to him and his siblings.

“He first and foremost was a great father, in spite of his busyness,” the younger Bush said. “He took time to let us know how much he loved us. So my relationship with my dad is one based upon love and admiration.”

George W. Bush said the unconditional love he got from his father allowed him to make bold decisions, like running for President of the United States.

“I tell people that his conditional love made it easier to take risks in life,” he said.

The elder Bush, who celebrated his 90th birthday June 12, hasn’t written his own autobiography but instead wrote “All the Best: My Life in Letters and Other Writings," a "collection of letters, diary entries, and memos, with his accompanying commentary," the Amazon listing says. He also collaborated with former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft on "A World Transformed."
