- Associated Press - Tuesday, April 9, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — One of President Obama's top advisers and strategists during his first term has a book deal.

David Axelrod is working on a memoir scheduled for fall 2014. At least two other former Obama administration officials, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Timothy F. Geithner, also have books planned for next year.

Penguin Press announced Mr. Axelrod's book on Tuesday. According to Penguin, he will write about his long friendship with Mr. Obama and offer his views on elections and government.

Mr. Axelrod helped run Mr. Obama's successful campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and worked as an adviser to the president during his first term. Mr. Axelrod, a 58-year-old former political writer and ex-columnist for the Chicago Tribune, recently joined NBC News as a senior political analyst.
