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 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 H.W. 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.
