David Axelrod, former political adviser to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama's chief strategist in 2008 and 2012, is writing a memoir.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Axelrod is looking to write more than a dishy White House tell-all. Penguin says that the book will cover his entire career from his early years as journalist in Chicago, through his decades as a political strategist. Mr. Axelrod has had close relationships with controversial figures like John Edwards, the former senator from North Carolina, and Rod R. Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois, who will make appearances in the book.

The book is due out by Penguin Press in 2014.
