Lee Atwater, who ran George Bush's 1988 presidential campaign, has outlined a book about his life, from childhood to his recent religious conversion and bout with a brain tumor.

In between, Atwater would sprinkle anecdotes about politicians he has helped and opposed, according to an outline dated Sept. 4. The State newspaper in Columbia, S.C., obtained a copy and reported on it Friday.The tales would give readers a glimpse into how Atwater managed to "undermine" the campaigns of political adversaries.

"I would create crazy situations and chaos if they weren't there," he writes.

The outline does not elaborate on what Atwater means about creating "chaos."

Atwater, 39, being treated for a cancerous brain tumor, has yet to sign a contract with a publisher.
