Publisher's Summary

Dear Madam President is an empowering letter from former White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri to the first woman president and, by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field. By using lessons learned during her experiences with Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and Elizabeth Edwards - to name a few - Palmieri, through each chapter, creates a forward-thinking framework of inspirational and practical advice for all women everywhere - from boardrooms to living rooms - who are determined to seize control of their lives, their workplaces, and their country. 

Dear Madam President will turn the results of the 2016 election into something incredibly empowering for future female leaders and independent thinkers everywhere. We haven't wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men. This, of course, was seen during the Hillary Clinton campaign, and no-one knows this better than Jennifer Palmieri. 

While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the election, Palmieri optimistically argues in the book that the Clinton candidacy and all she experienced on the campaign trail - confusion, admiration, hate, love, acceptance, rejection - can now open the country up to reimagining women in leadership roles. And that is what Palmieri takes on in this book - redefining expectations for women looking to lead and creating a blueprint for women candidates and leaders to follow.

A couch session on a lost election

So, the title leads you to think this will provide some experienced advice for the first female president and, by extension, to female leaders generally. And there are notable points where she does convey this but...

This is really an autopsy on the 2016 US presidential election as seen from a Hillary insider. And it contains an interesting and occasionally infuriating analysis of the campaign from her perspective.

If you’ve had your fill of that election (or Hillary) you might wish to avoid.

If you’ve read Comey’s Higher Loyalty, Hillary’s What Happened and anything about the Trump perspective (from Art of the Deal) onwards, then this is probably surplus to your requirement.

If you haven’t, it’s worth a read and is short enough to be worth your time.

But I wish she’d called it something less misleading. Or made more of the content to justify the title.
