NEW YORK — H. Ross Perot is getting down to brass tacks again — this time in print.

The 82-year-old Texas billionaire and former presidential candidate has a deal with Simon & Schuster for his autobiography, scheduled for release in January. The publisher announced Tuesday that Mr. Perot’s book is called “Ross Perot: My Life.”

Mr. Perot’s previous books include “Ross Perot: My Life & the Principles for Success” and “United We Stand,” a campaign book published in 1992.

Known for such folksy expressions as “Let’s get down to brass tacks,” Mr. Perot was among the most successful third-party candidates in history. In 1992, he received nearly 19 percent of the vote in a race won by Democrat Bill Clinton.
