There has been no information given on what the books will be called or what information will be disclosed but it's thought they will be about their time in the White House.

Their book deals are the highest grossing of Barack's predecessors with Bill Clinton earning $15 million for the rights to his book and George W Bush receiving $10 million for his.

Barack and Michelle have both previously released books. Michelle released a book on gardening and food, American Grown, while Barack released two books, Dreams From My Father and The Audacity Of Hope.
