And then a book on when to start wars...

Just what the world has been demanding:
according to the New York Times, [George W. Bush] plans to release a book in two months that will lay out his advice on boosting economic growth...
Let me guess:

"First, have someone buy you a flight suit...hehehe...preferably somebody with one of those Harvard Ph.Ds. Next have someone buy you an aircraft carrier..."

Sure, this sounds jaw-droppingly stupid.

On the other hand TED would probably release video of him talking about the subject.

With lots of pictures. It lets you know you're holding the book right-side up.

I hope it has a chapter on Diplomacy!

Somewhere someone is translating stick figures and random scrawling to text. A team of editors will then scour the resulting letters and numbers to discern a semi-coherent pattern of thought. A Neoconservative think tank, convened in Dick Cheney's basement, will then mold that into a policy position.

Condi Rice is on standby to reprise her "Night of the Mushroom Cloud" role.

It'll be magic.

We should encourage Chimp to go on an extended high-publicity book tour. Anything that puts this lazy fratboy asshole in the public eye reminds the low-information population why they should never let a Repuke in the White House again.
