Stanley A. McChrystal Lands Book Deal for Memoir

portfoliologo.jpgRetired U.S. Army General Stanley A. McChrystal has landed a book deal with Portfolio/Penguin to publish his memoir.

Publication for the currently untitled book is set for 2012. Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly negotiated the deal with Portfolio publisher Adrian Zackheim. Earlier this year the general was relieved of his command of U.S. forces in Afghanistan after sharing some controversial opinions in a Rolling Stone profile written by Michael Hastings.

Zackheim had this comment: “Amidst all the media coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan … few people know who General Stan McChrystal really is and what he has accomplished. Nor do people realize what a fascinating career he had for 38 years in the Army and what he can teach all of us about effective leadership under extreme pressure.”
