After swearing to all who would listen that he was hijacked from office in a flagrant abuse of justice, disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is finally releasing his unfiltered take.

Blagojevich's book, The Governor, will hit store shelves September 8th (you can pre-order it now from Amazon, Powell's, or call your local bookseller).

The description from the publisher, Phoenix Books, calls the 352-page book "a proclamation that one man will not be silenced, that his side of the story must be heard and that the fight for American liberties and freedom must sometimes occur within its own borders."

An ad in Sunday's New York Times Book Review was similarly breathless, saying the book, "pulls the curtain back on the shadowed world of politics and exposes the conspiracies and transgressions that so often compromise the basic tenet of American life: with liberty and justice for all. It is a proclamation that the governor's side of the story must be heard."

Blagojevich's publicist claimed the impeached governor received a six-figure advance on the book.
