    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.

    Overall

    This is not only a great autobiography, but it is a enthralling political history of the US in the last 50 years of the 20th century. Clinton is brilliant, and his understanding of history shines through. (If only all politicians had his historical understanding!)

    He shows his humanity in that he doesnt villify his political opponents, but only shows why they were wrong policy-wise (as opposed to them always arguing that he is "evil" and "ungodly").

    Clinton doesnt spend much time settling scores, and instead spends a lot of attention on why his policies worked and why current Bush policies fail so miserably. And the stories of his childhood flesh him out so well.

    Highly recommended for both those interested in policy, and those interested in this fascinating foibled man.
