Very good book!

A very real, open look into the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. She dares to be vulnerable in many areas of the book, while maintaining the class and dignity she is known for by her fans. A great read...I couldn't put it down.

A Very Smart Woman

So many people want to give their opinion of Hillary and not the book itself. I found the book extremely interesting and informative and the information she provides about all of the things she learned as First Lady I do feel made her perfectly well suited to become President. She knows all the appointments that need to be made, all the jobs that need to be filled, and she's learned what types of comments and actions can get you in trouble while in the White House. I find her incredibly smart and had no idea of all the different issues that she is familiar with and all the people and friends she has made over the years who can and do give her insight. All in all a delightful book and a good read.

Love Her, or Hate Her, Its The Real Deal.

As we move through the year 2007, the 2008 Presidential race is already in high gear, and it is very possible that we may have our first female President in Hillary Clinton. I enjoyed this book for the way it "filled in the blanks" about her early life, but also went into great candor about her private tribulations, in a VERY public life. Her telling of the period when she learned the truth about President Clinton's affair with a certain intern, was chilling and real, and we perhaps came to respect her decision to remain married to him. Mrs. Clinton attempted to do more with her role as First Lady than many of her more recent contemporaries, and while some find this unsetteling, hello, this is America. A women can choose her course, and the First Lady should be no different. To me, the most telling part of the book is when she talks about the campaign trail. Yes, in our nation politics has bceome a very big game, and as she puts it, if you can't play the game, don't run. Thankfully, Mrs. Clinton can play the game, and play it quite well! Ken

An intelligent account of history, (not gossip filled)

If you are looking for gossip, go read another book. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's book is as the title states: It is a Living History. It is well-written and filled with facts and stories of past generations. If you have children or grandchildren this is a book you should buy for them. It is a warm and compassionate way to learn history (as opposed to our education system that tends to teach history via war dates). Buy this book. You Won't Be Sorry! (...)
