I didn't know what to expect when I first began to listen to this book. At the end I realized just how much I didn't know and wished I had about President Clinton. His life is proof that you can make of your life whatever you wish. He shows that making mistakes, even for someone in the public eye, doesn't make you unforgivable - it makes us human.

This book was a wonderful read. The book is a little long but well worth it. It will give you a good idea why he believes in the polices that he does or a glance into his and Hillary's personal life. The part of this book that stood out to me, that shows why he believes in the polices that he does is the story of his grandfathers grocery store. His grandfather would black out the receipts of the customers who couldn't pay because his grandfather believed that if you're trying to feed your family and can't afford to, you need a break. Bill went on to say this is why he believed in food stamps. But what I think is the crux of the book is when he was elected to governor. A man who was on PCP had gotten a railroad tie and knocked down the door to the governors mansion. It took 3 very large secret service members to seduce the crazed man. I love this book and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. There were a few parts of the book weren't that well written. A good chunk of the book is filler. They are very bland and boring parts that are just there to fill the book. There are parts of the book that are just back and forth between him and someone he knows. This I a very well written and interesting book that gives a glimpse into this political and private life. If you liked this book you would also like the book written by his wife Hillary Clinton or our current president Barack Obama's book.

My Life by Bill Clinton (957 pages) is immensely enjoyable - it would have been a great read even if it wasn't written by a former President of the United States. Besides the glimpses it offers into the Presidency and Mr Clinton's private life, it offers a guide for success: Start early, stay committed, rise above yourself and your circumstances, and persevere. The book is lucid, well written, and instructive. Mr Clinton, for example, discusses some of the people and lists several of the books that have been influential in his life, including Red Star Over China (Edgar Snow) and You Can't Go Home Again (Thomas Wolfe). He also serves to remind us that life consists of both successes and failures. For the former President, a balanced federal budget is a particularly relevant success story given the current climate of economic uncertainty, while the failure to broker successful negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians continues to breed instability and human suffering. My Life is a gold mine of political ideas and personal lessons.

former president bill clinton tells a true american story. he reveals a side of himself that was closed off to the public his entire eight years in office. he tells his story with enthusiasm and his own unforgetable charm. he leaves nothing unsaid in his journey coming from a middle class family in hope, arkansas to being presidant of the united states.

Bill is very protective of his real self. He lives and breathes politics. There are several nostalgic stories in the book as one who has lived during this time I can relate to. Too much detail about political events. Most of the book is about his political experiences, not his personal life. Not the real Bill Clinton. As a result, very boring in many places. Lists of names and dates and events. I am still not finished with the book. I do not like not finishing a book but I will have to force myself to pick this one up again.

It¿s History told with meaningless and mind-numbing details. It¿s Biography viewed from a self absorbed perspective. After reading the tome, I am reminded that there is only one tragedy in life----wasted talent. Nothing contained in this book is likely to change history¿s verdict of his eight years in office. Most economists will continue to view Clinton as the fortunate beneficiary of the technology revolution. His political success was achieved by passing Republican agenda items like NAFTA and Welfare Reform. He has nothing to compare with LBJ¿s Civil Rights and Great Society reforms; FDR¿s New Deal and Victory over Fascism, or Truman¿s Marshall Plan and the creations of modern American internationalism. So, left with nothing meaningful to explain, Clinton writes about himself. If that is of interest to you, then expect a lengthy but easy read. Unfortunately, Clinton remains for me a first class intellect but a third rate President.
