Timothy Geithner will write a book about his fun times during the financial crisis, set for release in 2014, the AP reports. He'll be represented by the same lawyer who helped ink book deals for President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, the former Treasury secretary is becoming a distinguished fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, which calls him a "tireless, creative, and responsible custodian of the public trust," the Washington Post reports. He'll start the think-tank job this month. (More Timothy Geithner stories.)
