Joe the Plumber Pens Memoir

The Ohio plumber who became an election celebrity has written a book about his life and his campaign experiences.

Samuel "Joe" Wurzelbacher is the author of "Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream."

Wurzelbacher became famous during the final weeks of the campaign after asking Barack Obama about his tax plan at a campaign stop outside Wurzelbacher's home near Toledo.

Wurzelbacher was held up by McCain's campaign as an example of an American worker who would be hurt economically by Barack Obama's election.

Wurzelbacher endorsed McCain and joined him on the campaign trail. But he criticizes McCain in his book and says he did not want him as the Republican presidential nominee.

In an interview with radio host Glenn Beck earlier this month Wurzelbacher said he was furious that McCain voted for the $700 billion bank rescue plan and asked him why he endorsed it. 

Wurzelbacher said some of the Arizona senator's answers stunned him. However, he didn't say exactly what set him off, hinting that would be in his book.
