Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Publishing a book is part of the "compulsory figures" as a preparation for any significant run for office in French politics (actually selling said book matters very little, believe it or not): Barnier is obviously preparing his grand return on the national stage.

This would be a first in France: serving in EU positions in Brussels and - even worse - at the EP in Strasbourg are considered political exile in Siberia. Barnier could be the first to restart a national political career in France after such a long stint in the EU institutions.
