Title: My Life
Author: Bill Clinton
President Bill Clinton’s My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts to serving the public.
It shows us the progress of a remarkable American, who made the unlikely journey from Hope, Arkansas, to the White House.
President Clinton’s audiobook is also the most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, encompassing not only the high points and crises but the way the presidency actually works.
It is the gripping account of a president under concerted and unrelenting assault orchestrated by his enemies on the Far Right and how he survived and prevailed.
It is a treasury of moments caught alive, among them:
– The roller-coaster ride of the 1992 campaign
– The extraordinarily frank exchanges with Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole
– The cost, both public and private, of the scandal that threatened the presidency
Here is the life of a great national and international figure, revealed with all his talents and contradictions, told openly, directly, in his own signature style.
My Thoughts: A great read. I, like many, have been a great follower of the former president. I can’t get enough of this dude. He is the greatest of my generation (period!)
