Scott Cunningham / Gettty Images
What will Colin Powell have to say about Dick Cheney? The former secretary of state has written a new book called It Worked for Me. The book, to be published by HarperCollins in May, will contain stories from the four-star general’s career. In a statement, the publisher said: “Decades of public service have proven him to be an unparalleled leader, a man who commands respect in many fields. His remarkable book distills his wisdom into memorable anecdotes and lessons, drawing from his life and career.”
