'Valley Boy'

Application security programs and practises

Venture capitalist and HP watchdog Tom Perkins has signed on with Penguin to pen a tell all memoir.

The book "Valley Boy: The Education of Tom Perkins" will start with Perkins' role in the HP spy scandal, according to a report in the NY Post. The former HP board member went first to HP CEO Mark Hurd and then the press with his concerns over the phone fraud techniques employed by the company to spy on board members. Ultimately, Perkins' disclosures forced the spy issue into the public domain.

Perkins' autobiography will also cover his time as an HP engineer, work at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, and his brief marriage to romance novelist Danielle Steele.

On the romance front, Perkins wrote his own "not autobiographical" piece called "Sex and the Single Zillionaire."

Tired of spending money on yachts and houses, Perkins now seems desperate to stay in the limelight. ®
