Move over, Wordsworth! Former President George W Bush, famous for his 'Bushisms', has sold two million copies of his memoir

For someone who mangled words on a regular basis, it's an impressive feat.
对一个每天说话都老用错词的人来说,这实在是惊人的成就。

Former U.S. President George W Bush's memoir has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November - and it's not even in paperback yet.
美国前总统乔治·W·布什的回忆录十一月初刚刚上架就已经卖出了惊人的200万本,而且还都是硬皮版的!(西方的新书一般都是硬皮版,等第一轮销售完了再出便宜的简装版)

'Decision Points', published both in hardcover and e-book form, is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says.
据出版公司皇冠说,无论是硬皮版还是电子版的《决策时刻》都很畅销。

By contrast, former president Bill Clinton's memoir, 'My Life', has logged sales of 2.2million copies since it was first published in 2004.
于此正好相反,前总统比尔·克林顿的回忆录《我的生活》早在2004年就已经出版了,到今天也不过卖出了220万本。

A spokesman for Crown called the performance remarkable.
皇冠出版社的发言人称这一业绩非常惊人。

He claimed he could not think of any other hardcover nonfiction books in 2010 that had sold even one million copies, much less two.
他说,据他所知2010年出版的非小说类新书中,除了这本书,没一本硬皮版销量超过100万的,更别说200万本了。

In 'Decision Points,' Mr Bush recounts the inner workings of the White House and his administration following the September 11 attacks, including decisions that led to the wars in Afghanistan in Iraq.
在《决策时刻》一书中,布什回顾了911袭击后,白宫以及其幕僚的内部工作情况,包括一些决定了阿富汗以及伊拉克战争的开始的决定。

He recounts parts of his childhood, speaks lovingly of his family and wife, and wonders about how history will judge him. 
他也描述了自己的童年,幸福的家庭以及太太,还有对历史将如何评价他的疑惑。

As for whether there are any of the infamous Bushisms in it - you'll have to read it to find out.
至于里面到底有多少恶名远播的“布什乱用体”,那就要你自己去读读看了。
