NEW YORK (AP) — H. Ross Perot is again getting down to brass tacks — this time in print.

The 82-year-old Texas billionaire and former presidential candidate has a deal with Simon & Schuster for his autobiography, scheduled to come out in January. The publisher announced Tuesday that Perot's book is called "Ross Perot: My Life."

Perot's previous books include "Ross Perot: My Life & the Principles for Success" and "United We Stand," a campaign book published in 1992.

Known for such folksy expressions as "Let's get down to brass tacks," Perot was among the most successful third-party candidates in history. In 1992, he received nearly 19 percent of the vote in a race won by Democrat Bill Clinton.
