Tom Perkins, the former Hewlett-Packard board member who helped expose the spying scandal that rocked the company and unseated its chairman earlier this year, has agreed to write a memoir that will provide details of the H-P affair.
From Keith Kelly's column in the Post:

The memoir is entitled "Valley Boy: The Education of Tom Perkins," and will appear under the Gotham imprint.
It begins with his stormy resignation from H-P in May 2006, shortly after the board learned that then-Chairman Patricia Dunn had conducted a lengthy spying operation on the company's own board members to learn who was leaking stories to the press.
Perkins, a board member at Post parent company News Corp., went to authorities after he discovered that he had also been the subject of unauthorized surveillance by Dunn, which triggered the scandal that forced her to step down.
