    President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

    Gary says: "New found respect for Clinton from a Republican"
    "Long-winded"
    Overall

    I'm two-thirds of the way through volume 1, and I'm thinking that the abridged version might have been more appropriate for the casual reader. Clinton's every word may be of interest to budding politicians and historians, but I'm tiring of the minutiae of how many votes he lost in a rural Arkansas county when he raised the fees for car tags and then how many he won back during his third gubernatorial campaign. With seemingly zero attempt at brevity, Clinton seems to be cataloging every event of his life and only occasionally provides some reflection on the events. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating autobiography of a charismatic leader.
