NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. economy is about to get the Bob Woodward treatment.

The next book by the award-winning investigative reporter and best-selling author will document how President Barack Obama and congressional leaders responded to the economic crisis and where we stand now.

Publisher Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday the book will be called "The Price of Politics" and will come out Sept. 11.

Woodward isn't the first writer to take on Obama and the economy. But his publisher promises a definitive story, including "hour-by-hour accounts" and interviews with Obama and other top officials.

On Sept. 10, ABC's Diane Sawyer will have the first interview with Woodward, to be aired on "World News." Woodward will sit with George Stephanopoulos (stehf-uh-NAHP'-uh-luhs) on publication day for a live interview on "Good Morning America."
