Her Way has already sent shock waves through the election season and forced Hillary Clinton's camp to answer some difficult questions about Iraq, her ambitions, and her political future. This acclaimed biography takes readers from the dorm rooms of Wellesley to the courthouses of Arkansas and Washington, to the White House, where Hillary presided as a First Lady like no other, to the back rooms of the Senate, to her multimilliondollar mansion in Washington, DC, the locus of an unparalleled political machine; to her war room, from which she orchestrates ferocious attacks on her critics; and to the campaign trail, where she now faces the greatest challenge of her political life.

Hillary Rodham Clinton. Love her or hate her it seems everyone has a strong opinion and this book helps explain why. It paints a picture of a classic overachiever with a knack for leaving her mark 'for better or for worse'. What the book does well is objectively analyze Clinton¿s senate career in a way few books have done before. It shows Clinton to be a talented and effective lawmaker if a bit too calculating and opportunistic. On balance it reveals Clinton to be an overly ambitious politician, a charge that, in all fairness, could be leveled at countless other lawmakers. Press reports 'and critique from what the authors call `Hillaryland¿' prepared the reader for a critical portrait but in reality the Hillary Clinton revealed in the book is an accomplished but flawed, fiercely private woman, struggling to excel publicly in a country and world uncomfortable with strong and powerful female figures. As detailed in the book, this hesitancy to fully embrace Clinton isn¿t helped by her less attractive personality traits. What the book doesn¿t do so well is examine fully Clinton¿s childhood and the effect Clinton¿s work as First Lady 'outside of health care' had on her husband¿s presidency. If you want a book singing Clinton¿s praises, or one highlighting her faults, look elsewhere. But if you want a fair study on a complicated figure you could do a lot worse.
'her way' is a very fast reading book and very hard to put down. The arthurs have produced a very remarkable read on the life of senator clinton. This publication documents that hillary is a person who is use to getting her own way and will stop at nothing to cover up for her own mistakes.I really apprieated this book cause it shows alot of this lawmakers voting record and how she is a hypocrite.This bestseller is a 2008 i think this book will be very informative for the voters in 2008 i found alot of things that i didnt know.
