Few Treasury secretaries received as much attention as Geithner, who has been praised for helping prevent a second Great Depression but criticized for being too friendly to financial institutions. He will draw upon his experience at the Treasury and his previous job as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where he served from 2003-2009.

According to Crown, Geithner will write about his work with President Obama, Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, and other top officials.

‘‘Secretary Geithner will aim to answer the most important — and to many the most troubling — questions about the choices he and his colleagues made, the strategies they adopted, and the economic aftermath.’’

Geithner, 51, stepped down in January as Treasury secretary and was succeeded by Jack Lew.

Financial terms for Geithner’s book were not disclosed.
