    (244)

    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.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would expect more from a personality as Clinton. More about his conceptions of philosophy of life and less about the details on his administration. He talks very interestingly about his child and teenager life, very hard, indeed. Passes through his initial political initiatives very good (his impressions on Vietnam war, for example) and his period as Arkansas governor very fast. And the came all the details on his presidency, that made me abandon the reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    His first 25 years.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Choosing another reader different as Bill Clinton. He does not habe the proper pronuntiation.


    Could you see My Life being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I don't know if the movie would have enough audience.
