    "Bill Clinton is a Genius"

    Whether you like him or not, his speech is thoughtful, perceptive and humorous. If his book is anywhere this good (and I hope he is the reader), it should be fascinating.

    "Makes you wish for more."

    Clinton deftly covers not only his book but some of the key issues facing America today under the Bush regime. Specifically, I found his discussions of the Patriotic Act and the politics of personal destruction especially insightful. He encourages his audience, "not to worry" that these things will work themselves out and you want to believe him. Let's just hope we don't get another four years of those Reagan-wannabe's.

    "Wow. Excellent book introduction."

    This book introduction by Clinton in his own words is absolutely marvelous. His summary of presidential and american political history was incredibly insightful.

    Whether you support his views or not, I urge you to listen to this brief 54minutes of free audio in his own words to determine if you will follow through with his book purchase. At the very least, I guarantee you will walk away with a fresh perspective of american political history.

    "My whole family enjoyed it"

    We sat in the parking lot, not wanting to go in until it was over. Not too often that happens to a couple of middle aged adults and their 16 year old all at once.

    Whatever Bill Clinton is or is not, he's a great speaker. I found this speech to be fascinating.

    "Bill Clinton at his best"

    His speech is engaging, funny, and inspiring. It made me want to listen to his book all over again, but this time listen to the unabridged version so that I could hear all of his funny anecdotes. You can really get a feel for how he thinks, what he considers important, and his intelligence listening to him talk about his book, or as he likes to call it, his story.

    "Bill Clinton's BookExpo"

    Bill Clinton is one of the most unbiased thinkers of today. He clearly sees what's happening in today's world, he doesn't need to read something prepared for him and fumble with speech like some we needn't mention but can speak freely & honestly from his heart. He is not anti-Republican or anti-Democrat, but expresses only anti-terrorism. He knows our government & history and has something good to say for all. When he speaks, it's no matter to which party you belong because you truly feel more safe, so to speak, if this person were still in charge of our world. An impressive, refreshing and entertaining long-awaited story to hear.

    "Great Perspective"

    Gives a great sample of an ex-president's personality. Such a clear perspective of how US politics has and is developing. Worth listening to.

    "Eloquence"

    This is a very thoughtful, engaging and eloquent speech by former President Clinton. He truly is the most able speaker on the current political circuit. Witty, hilarious, insightful, inspirational and thought provoking. Let's hope the book, "My Life" lives up to the expectations.
