NEW YORK — Colin Powell’s new book is a story of success.

 

The retired four-star general and former Secretary of State has a deal with HarperCollins for “It Worked for Me: Lessons in Leadership and Life.”

According to HarperCollins, the book will include his 13 rules of leadership and “revealing personal stories.”

 

Financial terms were not disclosed. HarperCollins announced Sunday that the book was scheduled for May 2012.

 

One of Powell’s rules, “Get mad, then get over it,” will be tested in his book. HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis declined to comment on whether Powell would respond to criticisms in recent memoirs by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld or former Vice President Dick Cheney, both of whom Powell often clashed with while in the George W. Bush administration.

 

Cheney’s “In My Time” noted their differences about the Iraq War and alleged that Powell was reluctant to express himself in Cabinet meetings. Powell has since said that Cheney’s book included “cheap shots.”

 

Once considered a presidential contender, Powell wrote a best-selling memoir, “My American Journey,” published in 1995. Powell has not written about his years as secretary of state, but was interviewed by Washington Post reporter Karen DeYoung for her 2006 biography, “Soldier: The Life of Colin Powell.”
