Here's the relevant excerpt about the former president from Sorkin's piece:

[Geithner] cheerfully relayed a story that also appears in his book about the time he sought advice from Bill Clinton on how to pursue a more populist strategy: “You could take Lloyd Blankfein into a dark alley,” Clinton said, “and slit his throat, and it would satisfy them for about two days. Then the blood lust would rise again.”

Geithner has a new book titled "Stress Test" that's set to come out May 12.
