    Like it or not, Hillary Clinton is almost assuredly going to run for president in 2008. It doesn't matter that her negative poll numbers are high or that her past 15 years in the public eye have been anything but smooth. Since she was a little girl she has dreamed about becoming the first female president, and now that dream is well within reach.

    Overall

    I've always found Hillary Clinton to be an incredibly polarizing figure. You either love her or hate her. It should be fairly obvious from the reviews written here who's a Hillary fan and who isn't.

    I thought the author did a pretty good job of shedding some light on the drive and ambition that Mrs. Clinton has posessed since childhood.

    On the one hand it's an amazing testament to her because of what she has achieved, but it is also sad when you consider her win-at-all-costs attitude gets in the way of telling the truth on subjects like Whitewater to staying in a loveless marriage with a spouse incapable of fidelity because he just happens to be the President of the United States.

    I realize that's a loaded statement full of my own personal opinion, but in the end, I don't think this book will change your opinion of Sen. Clinton. It will only reinforce what you already believe about her.

  • Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World's Greatest Outlaw

    Killing Pablo is the inside story of the brutal rise and violent fall of Colombian cocaine cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar. Also from Bowden: the best selling Black Hawk Down.

    Bob says: "Relevant Accessible History"
    "Interesting, but not riveting"
    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book as I had read Blackhawk Down (also by this author), and loved it.

    Killing Pablo turned out to be a bit of a disappointment for me which was a surprise because of the extremely colorful (to put it mildly) life of Pablo Escobar.

    This telling of the efforts to track down one of history's most notorious criminals was lacking in my view, and I found myself frequently looking ahead to my next selection from audible.com.
