Donald Rumsfeld book "Known and Unknown" to hit Shelves next month

A Bush-era stalwart is about to re-emerge after a four-year absence, wielding a hefty book, and with news of Elvis.

Former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld‘s 832-page memoir, “Known and Unknown,” is due on bookshelves Feb. 8; the author, who accepted no advance on the work, has said he’ll donate profits to a private foundation.
