Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America's 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future. In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed.

I enjoyed this book, but it's long. A couple of the chapters are a bit dry - by the time Syria rolled around it felt a little repetitive. I have more appreciation for how difficult and complex the Secretary of State Job is having read this book.
