Overview

A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton by Carl Bernstein, Dick Rodstein

Carl Bernstein’s stunning portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows us, as nothing else has, the true trajectory of her life and career with its zigzag bursts of risks taken and safety sought. Marshaling all the skills and energy that propelled his history-making Pulitzer Prize reporting on Watergate, Bernstein gives us the most detailed, sophisticated, comprehensive, and revealing account we have had of the complex human being and political meteor who has already helped define one presidency and may well become, herself, the woman in charge of another.
In his preparation for A Woman in Charge, Bernstein reexamined everything pertinent written about and by Hillary Clinton. He interviewed some two hundred of her colleagues, friends, and enemies and was allowed unique access to the candid record of the 1992 presidential campaign kept by Hillary’s best friend, Diane Blair. He has given us an audiobook that enables us, at last, to address the questions Americans are insistently–even obsessively–asking about Hillary Clinton: What is her character? What is her political philosophy? Who is she? What can we expect of her?
As she decides to run for president, her husband now her valued aide, she has one more chance to fulfill her ambition for herself–to change the world.

Outstanding journalism. A well -written, well-researched, no-holds-barred biography of a complex and accomplished person. She is perhaps the most qualified candidate ever to run for President. I came away with a new understanding of, and profound respect for, a true servant of the people who has been doing outstanding work since her college years.

Wow! is what my initial response to this book. Hillary Clinton has always been a character that puzzled me a lot. I had exactly the same questions that Bernstein had. Who is 'really' Hillary Clinton? What is her character? What is her political philosophy? What can we expect of her if she becomes our next President? Is she an opportunist? Does she deserve our votes? At a time when almost everyone thinks that Hillary is one arrogant opportunistic politician who married and remained with Bill Clinton to advance politically and obtain power, Bernstein sees it from a different angle and definitely brings out a clear and balanced portrait of this complex personality. What makes this book unique is the candid and undisputable facts that Bernstein refers to. I was especially blown away by the rare findings that was revealed through Hillary's best friend, Diane Blair and Betsey Wright, Clinton's gubernatorial chief of staff in Arkansas. Bernstein reveals that throughout Hillary Clinton's years in the White House, the characteristic of her approach was to view politics as war. 'One aide in the 1992 presidential campaign told Bernstein, 'She's happiest when she's fighting.'' and she refused to read newspapers during the White House years. Bernstein tells us with excellent facts the reasons that made her change all of these attitudes that would not have suited her future endeavors. Bernstein has definitely produced an excellent book: thorough, balanced, and deeply reported facts that has certainly decrypted the complex character of one of the most compelling figures in the world today who helped define one presidency and may well step into another that all of us keep a close eye on. Five stars 5/5. N.Sivakumar Author of America Misunderstood: What a Second Bush Victory Meant to the Rest of the World

This book seems incredibly biased towards Senator Hillary Rodham-Clinton. No candidate is perfect, but Carl Bernstein paints her to be stainless in this lopsided piece of Hillary propaganda. A better book about a woman in charge would be the new book about Sarah Palin, a woman that has actual executive experience.

This book is a moot point. If America was ready for Hillary Clinton to assume the presidency, she would not have been snubbed by American Democrats in the primaries. Hillary Clinton has gone from media sensation to yesterday's news, and the overwhelming majority of Americans have now forgotten her. Want to read a book about a relevant woman in politics? Read the new book about Sarah Palin.

This was a very book and it says why she will not get the nomination because she is an incapable, unexperienced woman with no credentials.
