Thanks to the public nature of his rogue activism, Julian Assange’s popularity with certain sects of the public is at a peak. The WikiLeaks founder has turned government secrecy inside out, releasing hundreds of thousands of conversations over the Internet.

Assange’s latest set of leaks will be on a more personal level. AOL Daily Finance reports that the Australian has agreed to terms with a pair of book publishers to create a memoir of his mischief. The book is slated to be published in both the U.S. and the U.K. — with a rough manuscript in hand by March 2011. Expect the book to arrive sometime later on during that year.
