Unlimited Access is Aldrich's electrifying expose of a presidential administration with a great deal to hide and willing to put America at risk to keep it hidden. Aldrich describes how a comprehensive security system that had been perfected through six presidencies was systematically dismantled by the Clintons so they could bring friends into the White House who otherwise would have been barred by legal problems, some prosecutable. A New York Times best seller.

A transplanted Englishman, I spend my time on biography, history and military books. I appreciate good English and good narration.
How this book is not better known and read makes me wonder. It is a quick read, partly because the reader ends up astounded by the goings on in what should be America's greatest home. Anyone considering how to vote in 2008 should read this first; it is a first hand account of the abuse of power and the hidden lives of those who might have us respect them.
Say something about yourself!
It's hard to know where to begin. This is all stuff we know. Bill Clinton is a born politician. We all know he lies all the time. We know but we love him anyway because he's so darn charming. What is less well known is what an unpleasant person Hillary is. I've heard stories about Hillary from a friend who worked at the US Embassy in Paris so I wasn't surprised. Whatever. I voted for him but not for her. I was disappointed by his lack of conviction and moral fiber. He never knew what he thought until he read the polls. Whatever. We survived. Our democracy can survive a Bill Clinton. We almost didn't survive the Shrub. With any luck, Hillary will not be an issue in 2016.
If you are a moderate to liberal Clintons-Hater this is not a good book. There is no real discussion of the horrible policy flaws (see Richard Miniter's Losing Bin Laden or the Buzz Patterson Books for that) and not even than much contact with the Worst Couple. Aldrich is a real dyed-in-wool 1950 style "reactionary" who mainly complains that the Clinton White house was filled with rude, filthy, disrespectful people. He almost gives anti-Clintonism a bad name by complaining about past drug use, homosexuality or the rejection of "Christian values". We need to hate (and stop) the Clintons for the real damage they have caused (and will cause) not for the clash of values between a G-man and Hill and Bill's hippie and hillbilly administration.
Mr Aldrich comes off as self righteous and a boy scout at times but exposes the rank corruption and incompetence of the Clinton administration. The author is obviouslybitter at times, but still believable, and his anger is understandable given the nature, degree, and abruptness of the changes between the first Bush and Clinton administrations. The hypocacy, corruption, and outright deviancy discussed in this book speaks volumes about what the Clintons are truly all about. It is unfortunate that the press knew of many of these incidents but, for ideological reasons, chose not to expose them . The reader annoyingly and continuously mispronounces Quantico, Virginia as
Not a fan of the Clintons , but this is a truly ludicrous account - it is so petty it is beyond belief - no wonder we have trouble with security if this is the standard of agent we employ.
none - it is laughable.
