Product description


Fast and contemporary with a sense of urgency and an almost a televisual feel, giving the impression of a Washington not too far from something like House of Cards. The authors don't scrimp on detail, either, to make for a weighty, if friendly, portrait. * Independent on Sunday * HRC manages the rare feat of being both important and entertaining. It opens with a juicy chapter detailing the punishment and reward of Bill and Hillary's political enemies and friends. But the meat of HRC is its narration of her role in tackling crises in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya - an amazingly tumultuous period that provides the best preview of what a Hillary Clinton presidency might look like, at least for foreign policy. * New York magazine * A revealing window into the le Carre-like layers of intrigue that develop when a celebrity politician who is married to another celebrity politician loses to yet another celebrity politician, and goes on to serve the politician who defeated her. * Washington Post * [HRC] provides useful context and intelligent analysis, and a highly readable account of her tenure at Foggy Bottom . . . pumped full of colorful you-are-there details. -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times * A character-driven psychodrama, chockablock with sweaty descriptions of its players . . . It's no easy feat to wring page-turning narrative juice from four years of state craft, but Allen and Parnes have relied on 200 sources . . . to get them the gossipy goods. * Los Angeles Times * It is the correct starting point for an appraisal of a compelling character who might, at the age of 69 in January 2017, be sworn in as the most powerful woman in the history of the world. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, both respected political journalists who cover the day-to-day of the White House and Capitol Hill, start in the moment of defeat and plot "a tale of political resurrection for which the final chapters remain unwritten" . . . Whether or not she finally breaks the glass ceiling, she will make a tremendous story. * The Times, BOOK OF THE WEEK * Crammed with revelations about Mrs Clinton's service with Team Obama. * Economist * Allen and Parnes who have researched their subject assiduously and write in clear, readable prose, have written a book peppered with telling anecdotes. * Sunday Times * Well researched, well written and with plenty of inside access, it makes a strong case that Hillary is set to run again - and makes you hope she does. -- Alastair Campbell
