Billionaire Bloomberg Will Offer Business Advice

This one is going to be huge. Let’s face it: he’s extremely successful and very visible. A combination that’s a no-brainer bestseller in a business book. Reuters offers the details:
New York’s billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg will offer business and political advice in a book entitled “Do the Hard Things First” due out in September, the publisher said on Tuesday.

The book, written in collaboration with Margaret Carlson, is subtitled “(And Other Bloomberg Rules for Business and Politics)” and will be published by Vanguard Press, a member of the Perseus Book Group.
And though this is a nice thought, he’s a billionaire so, you know, yeah:
Bloomberg plans to donate all proceeds from the book to the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation, he said in a statement.
