The currently untitled book is scheduled for 2015. Spiegel & Grau said the book will track the band's rise from its high school years in New York City to its induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. The publisher said "world-famous writers and cultural figures" will be interviewed for the project.

The book will be organised by surviving band members Michael Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) with the help of hip-hop writer and editor Sacha Jenkins.
