Paul Ryan is writing a book, and it has tongues wagging not for literary reasons, but for political ones.

The Republican congressman from Wisconsin was propelled into the national spotlight in 2012 when GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney pegged him as his running mate.

With word out that he's writing a book, speculation has begun that's it part of a plan to seek the top spot on his party's ticket in 2016. Ryan's friends aren't responding to the speculation.

Ryan is working on the book with lawyer Bob Barnett, National Review reports, and it is set to be released in 2014. It will be part autobiography, political analysis and policy.

Ryan is reportedly concerned that Republicans are losing touch with blue collar Americans. He suggests the party talk to the poor about how to become empowered and achieve economic freedom.

The book will also touch on his childhood Janesville, Wisc., and time spent as an aid for former congressman and HUD Secretary Jack Kemp. His time as part of the Romney-Ryan ticket will be included, though it reportedly will not be a tell-all. Ryan is still friends with Romney.

The yet-to-be titled tome is the first major book by Ryan. He was a co-author of a 2010 campaign book, "Young Guns," with fellow House members Kevin McCarthy and Eric Cantor.
