    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

    I believe, like many other reviewers here, that Bill Clinton is capable of writing a more engaging and insightful book that this one. It is very fact- and time-based but rarely offers the deep personal reflection on events that one hopes for in an autobiography. That said, however, it was interesting to hear all the details about Clinton's career and family in his own words and I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about his life.

    A large number of reviewers and people seem to have reduced Clinton's presidency to the Lewinsky affair and wish he would have spent more time on it. I, for one, was delighted that he discussed it in limited detail and tried to keep it a personal matter between him and his family. Don't look here for salacious details and hysterical rants about the affair. For that go to the Starr report or Lewinsky's own book.
