It would have been very helpful to have access to the chart files mentioned in the introduction.
Probably couldn't. It is dripping with libralism as I suppose the author would have it.
I was hoping for some engaging antecdotes of President Clinton's career. Instead, I got a dose of libralism; not with a spoon but, with a shovel.
I think he is well spoken and has a great voice delivery.
I suppose from page one to the last page.
This is one of the very few dissapointments that I have had listening to a book. It is also one of the few that I just could not listen to in it's entirety.

Let's face it. You probably already know whether or not you'll agree with what President Clinton lays out in this book, so I won't waste any time getting into the politics of the book. I That said, I am a big fan and I didn't agree with absolutely everything here. But the bulk of what is here is interesting, compelling, and well thought out. Certainly, this presents a better roadmap than the one we seem to be using at present.
President Clinton is a surprisingly good reader. Not every great author or public speaker can make the jump to narration, but this performance had an almost perfect blend of poised and apparent spontaneity. The subject matter is necessarily a bit dry, but this reading does just about everything you could do to make it easier to stay awake through.
All-in-all, a worthwhile listen. Not exactly entertaining, but interesting, hopeful, and even a bit inspiring.
Former President Clinton backs his views with data and reasoning. He calls into question conservative rhetoric that is not consistent with historical data. This book challenged the efficacy of many of my political and economic beliefs. I recommend this book to all critical thinkers, regardless of their political affiliations.
A call for reason
The narration refers to charts that are in the viewable versions of the book. I found it useful to buy an ebook version so that I could review the charts.

looking for something new to intrigue me.
I yearn to hear viable proposals to move forward. Does anyone think there is only one path? Bill Clinton proposes a plan, presents the supporting logic and the expected results - just like the heart friendly diet we should all follow. So what I want to hear!
I really loved his approach, explaining the problem and providing detailed proposed solutions. I have not checked his assumptions but knowing what a brilliant mind he is I would absolutely trust his work.
Current issues that US is facing and rather than hearing slogans and meaningless marketing campaigns he is providing a real step by step approach to solving our problems. He can explain the problem in a way that everybody can understand. What a great communicator! Also I love the fact that he acknowledges American place in the world and the fact that we are not who we think we are anymore.
Yes. I love listening to his lazy accent. It is familiar and reassuring.
Understand the core issues, Step up, do the hard work

Common Wealth by Jeffrey Sachs, but Sachs book had significantly lot more beef on depth and breadth.
My Life (unabridged)
Mr Clinton views of G8 countries as competitors when it comes to Government services, planning, and global positioning.
It is a good positive thoughts book where Mr Clinton decided to air his views against the rising tide of disappointment with the Democratic among the American people.
