New York - Critics are mixed about George W Bush's new memoir, but the former president has received a rave review from a fellow White House alumnus, Bill Clinton.

In a statement released on Friday, Clinton praised Bush's Decision Points as "well-written and interesting", recommended it for "people of all political stripes" and said the book would help other Democrats understand why he liked Bush, a Republican.

Clinton is also friendly with Bush's father, former President George HW Bush, whom Clinton defeated for re-election in 1992. The bond between Clinton and the elder Bush is noted in Decision Points, which came out Tuesday.
