Publisher's Summary

Here is an insightful and much anticipated history of Bill Clinton's first term in office, describing his extraordinary effort to be a modern president in a modern world.

A decade and a half after William Jefferson Clinton first took the oath of office, best-selling, award-winning biographer Nigel Hamilton tells the riveting story of what was possibly the greatest self-reinvention of a president in office in modern times. The Clinton presidency began disastrously and deteriorated in a series of fiascoes. How Bill Clinton faced up to his failures and refashioned himself in the White House thereafter is the focus of this hitherto unwritten story. With his landslide win in the 1996 presidential election, Clinton began his second term as the undisputed, and tremendously popular, leader of the Western world.

This vivid narrative charts Clinton's dramatic reversal of fortune and his ultimate triumph over himself and his foes, and serves as a powerful reminder of what a great president can accomplish.

Critic Reviews

"A straightforward, effective recounting of the ups and downs of a presidency shaped as much by personality as by policy." ( Booklist)

Ok

It was interesting take on the first Clinton term however in my view unfair on Hilary and overly dismissive of republicans.
