"This is the Clinton book that college professors have been waiting for. Bennett’s tour de force offers a Clinton-in-context, as he constructs a concise, objective, and readable biography of Bill Clinton, then uses that biography to highlight many of the major issues of modern American history. Bennett offers us a challenging, fascinating biography, as well as a perfect teaching tool."
– John Robert Greene, author of The Presidency of George Bush
"This compelling biography of Bill Clinton is the first by a distinguished scholar of the presidency – and likely to remain the best for a long time to come. Bennett brings historical perspective to the achievements and trials of our 42nd chief executive while narrating a remarkable career with lucidity and insight."
– Strobe Talbott, president of the Brookings Institution
"Bennett offers a concise yet thorough biography of the 42nd president of the US… this book [is] a reader-friendly biography that counterbalances the right-wing assessment of the Clinton administration. Summing Up: Recommended" -J.R. Hedtke, Cabrini College in CHOICE
