Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director, is penning a book about the Trump Administration.

The New York Post first reported on Wednesday that Scaramucci has signed a deal with Hachette Book Group to opine on his relationship with the president.

The book will not be in the mold of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury," which pitched itself as a behind the scenes tell-all, but rather, will take a more cerebral glance at the politics and personality of the 45th President of the United States.

Scaramucci said his business experience and close ties to Trump, before and after his White House tenure, grants an unprecedented vantage point from which to discuss the leader of the free world.

"It’s an entrepreneur writing about an entrepreneur who has now ascended into the presidency," Scaramucci said.

The book, titled, "The Blue Collar President: How Trump is Reinventing the Aspirational Working Class," will serve as a study of the president's personal, professional, and political management style.

While discussing the content of the forthcoming book, Scaramucci took a swipe at White House chief of staff John Kelly, whose entrance prompted Scaramucci's removal. Scaramucci questioned if the president's leadership style, which he said worked successfully at the Trump Organization, really required a chief of staff.

"Trump as a strategist, as a communicator and why he probably doesn’t need a chief of staff but could rely on a core group of lieutenants like he did at the Trump Organization," Scaramucci added.

Scaramucci has been a frequent sparring partner of both Trump's chiefs of staff. When he first arrived at the White House in mid-2017, Scaramucci was a vocal critic of then-chief of staff Reince Priebus. It is alleged that Scaramucci's was central to orchestrating the departure of Priebus, which occurred six days after the former joined the administration. Since leaving the White House, Scaramucci has also been critical of Kelly. Earlier this month, Scaramucci said the retired marine corps general was responsible for the dysfunction and "low morale" plaguing the West Wing.

Scaramucci's book is expected to hit stores in September.
