(CNN) – Publisher HarperCollins announced Wednesday that it will publish former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's new book, "While I Was Growing Up," in 2012.

According to a press release, the book will be "part memoir and part cautionary tale," and is "a dramatic guide to the future through the lessons of the past, as seen through the eyes of one of the international community's most respected and fascinating figures."

Albright has written four books since leaving office in 2001. She was the first woman appointed to be the nation's top diplomat.

    The title should read" While I was Growing Up the US was strong and vibrant, but I made sure I left it weaker".

    Ha. Put that on a coffee table next to Caribou Barbie's pop-up book of too-early and unjustified memoire's and wannabe intellectual ramblings and guess which one people will pick up?

    Wrong.

    Thought I was going to say Albright's book?

    No. People are stupid...and fascinated by trainwrecks.
