I liked this book much more than I expected to like it. This book will appeal most to women who remember Hillary Clinton from when she was First Lady. The focus of this book is what women think of Hillary as an example of a high profile woman who is running for president. The book dominated by the left. Most of the writers like her. Despite this limitation this book does provide some interesting information about Hillary Clinton . There are some essays by her neighbors in New York which show her more as an everyday person. This book made me realize that in many ways she has lead a highly privileged life (unlike Bill). I think it hurts her with women that we don’t know what makes her tick and women more than men value a certain openness and wiliness to discuss personal issues(I call someone a “Hillary Clinton” a person either male or female whom we know is professionally smart and competent but otherwise we don’t really know too much about them). For the record, I was for Hilary when it was a race between her and Obama but I no longer support her. I don’t like political dynasties. I believe she has tried to get around certain laws by having her own e-mail server and she has told too many lies. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. (less)
