Dick Cheney Lands Book Deal for a Medical Memoir

Scribner will release a medical memoir from former Vice President Dick Cheney next fall, a book written with the politician’s cardiologist, Jonathan Reiner, M.D..

Attorney Robert B. Barnett negotiated the deal with Susan Moldow. Scribner senior editor Shannon Welch will edit. Cheney will donate “a portion of the authors’ net proceeds” to charity. Here’s more about the book, from the release:

the vice president will tell the very personal story of his 35-year battle with heart disease, from his first heart attack in 1978 to the heart transplant he received in 2012.  Dr. Reiner will provide insight into the incredible technological and medical breakthroughs that have changed the face of cardiac care in the last four decades, giving hope to the 80 million Americans suffering from heart disease.
