I think this book was an excellent way to learn more about Clinton's administration, Hillary's motivations and interests, and her political accomplishments. I like the way in which she gives the reader a view into her personal life, and not just life on Capitol Hill. However, I think Hillary goes into WAY too much detail regarding the Whitewater scandal and drags on about it fo so so long, losing me, and my interesting along the way. I understand that this was a traumatic experience for her and a terrible use of resources however, I do not think it was necessary to dedicate so much of the book to this one topic. Additionally, she provides the name of every single person involved in every single occurence. I also felt this was unnecessary and caused the book to drag on for much longer than it should have. I think this is a good read for anyone who is interested in politics, would like to learn more about Clinton's excellent administration, or would like to learn more about the controversial figure that is Hillary Clinton. However, as a warning, it does read like a history book at times.
