It is the story of how ambitious men and women climbed out of rural obscurity and "how friendships break down and lives are ruined". Anecdotes fall like bright coins from a raconteur's rich purse.
"Whitewater" is shown for what it was, a venture in land speculation that fell victim to mismanagement and high interest rates. Lies and cover-ups were the inevitable result.
Vintage political history, Arkansas Mischief is a southern tragedy with lessons for us all.

"[A] lively and engrossing excursion through the Arkansas culture that spawned McDougal and Bill Clinton." (The New Yorker)
"His book shows more than anything yet written about Whitewater that the human drama of this scandal may outlast even its political effects." (Wall Street Journal)
I HAVE NOT READ THE PRINTED VERSION
HOW THE CLINTONS BEHAVIOR IS CONSINSTANT THROUGH THE YEARS
I LOVED THE STORY. I CANNOT APPROVE OF SOME THE LANGUAGE. IT WAS UNNESSARY FOR THE STORY. OTHERWISE, THE BOOK IS VERY INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE. I WOULD RECCOMEND IT.
And I thought I didn't like Hillary BEFORE I listened to this book. Jim McDougall is no saint, but this books makes me feel sorry for him.
