Geithner has book deal, release scheduled for 2014

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has a book deal.

Geithner has an agreement with Crown Publishers, an imprint of Random House, Inc. Crown announced Thursday that Geithner's book, currently untitled, is scheduled for 2014.

Geithner plans a "behind-the-scenes" account of the financial crisis, drawing upon his experience as Treasury secretary in the Obama administration and his previous job as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he served from 2003-2009.

According to Crown, Geithner will write about his work with President Obama, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and other top officials and "aim to answer the most important -- and to many the most troubling -- questions about the choices he and his colleagues made."

Financial terms for Geithner's book were not disclosed.
