There’s word that retired four- star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell is working on a leadership book.  “It Worked for Me: Lessons in Leadership and Life” is being  published by Harper Collins and due out in 2012. 

According to Harper Collins, Powell’s book will include his 13 rules for leadership and revealing personal stories.

Powell wrote a best-selling memoir, “My American Journey.”  It was published in 1995. He never wrote about his years as secretary of state under George W. Bush.

Harper Collins isn’t saying whether Powell would respond to criticism in recent memoirs by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and former Vice President Dick Chaney who he had clashes with while in the Bush administration.
