    Cliff Hanger?

    I enjoy frankness of how a person deals with being President. I never expected this book to be a "tell all". The early reviews were very clear about that. However I did think it would be a bit more detailed. Mr Branch is a fantastic writer and I would recommend a book of his dealing with watching paint dry. On that note it is a good thing he wrote this book. His skills are what kept me turning pages. In the end it was entertaining but I think it was " a mile long and and inch deep".

    An Interesting Biography of Clinton in the Whitehouse

    This is a fairly detailed book on Clintons whitehouse years, told in interviews to the author. I enjoyed most of the book, but there were also a couple of"dead spots". Overall, though, this book contains much information on the workings of the 42nd president. I recommend it.

    What it's like to be the President

    This is a great biography (or memoir, if you will) on President Clinton and the Presidency in general. This work has captured what most presidential biographies (and autobiographies) only dream of: conveying to the reader what it is like to be the President at the time when the principal subject is the President. POTUS is not an easy job, even in peaceful times, and this book hammers that point home quite deftly. Particularly noteworthy is the incident during the first term when Pres. Clinton seemed to fall asleep in mid-sentence with his eyes rolling into his head. This book also has many fascinating tales on foreign policy during the Clinton years. I especially enjoyed the in-depth details about the U.S.'s dealings with Haiti in Pres. Clinton's first term. The enlightening details trail off after the second inauguration as the text seemed to get more breezy and quick in general. And though his deference on the Monica Lewinsky scandal is understandable (both for legal and personal reasons), you do kind of wish the author, Taylor Branch, had pressed the President for more on the matter. Bottom line, this is a fascinating book and one that should not be missed by any fans or researchers of U.S. and Presidential history.
