Baker & Taylor
Exhaustively researched and drawn from exclusive documents and detailed interviews, an investigative reporter reveals the strategy the Clintons used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around and lay the groundwork for their futures.

HARPERCOLL

Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons’ return to political prominence.

In the twelve years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being virtually penniless to multi-millionaires, and are arguably the most popular politicians in America—respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. But behind that rise is a never-before-told story of strategic cleverness, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for political power.

Investigative reporter Daniel Halper uses a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and detailed interviews with close friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around. Clinton, Inc. exposes the relationship between President Obama, the Bush family, and the Clintons—and what it means for the future; how Bill and Hillary are laying the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign; how Vice President Biden and other Democrats are trying to maneuver around her; Chelsea’ s political future; the Clintons’ skillful media management; the Clintons’ marriage and why it has survived; and an inside look at the Clinton’s financial backers and hidden corporate enterprises.

Clinton, Inc. is the key to understanding America’s most powerful political couple.



Baker
& Taylor

In 2001, Bill and Hillary Clinton left the White House under a cloud, dogged by scandals and investigations. Even many Democrats were glad to see them go. Yet within just a few years, Bill had secured a new reputation as a global humanitarian and elder statesman, and Hillary was running for president. Despite her 2008 loss to Barack Obama, Hillary bounced back to become a powerful and respected figure in his cabinet. Today the Clintons are among the most popular politicians in America -- respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. Their transformation has been so complete that it takes an effort to recall just how low their fortunes were a decade ago. None of this happened by accident. Behind the Clintons' remarkable comeback is an untold story of strategic calculation, backroom deals, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for wealth and power. Here, Weekly Standard reporter Daniel Halper compiles a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and candid interviews with friends, allies, and former enemies of the Clintons to reveal how they rebuilt their reputations, reconstructed their political machine, and positioned themselves for even greater success. Halper describes in intimate detail how the Bill and Hillary partnership works; provides new insights into their deals and friendships; and a comprehensive Republican effort to bring their ambitions to a halt.
Drawn from exclusive documents and detailed interviews with their close friends, allies and enemies, an investigative reporter reveals the strategies and deals the Clintons made to turn their political fortunes around and to lay the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign. 75,000 first printing.

Not sure how the previous review calls this a 'puff piece' as the author is clearly writing from a Republican POV. There's not a single chapter that offers a glowing outcome or judgement. Perhaps there were more details or scandals that could have been covered, but this is a book the Clintons' are not likely to be handing out as Christmas gifts.

Overall, I thought most of the book was fair and properly researched, although it is far too filled with unnamed sources to be a reliable, lasting insight into the legacy of the Clinton clan.

A very positive puff piece on the Clintons, without enlightening us as to just how much damage they [which means all three of them, Bill and his legislation as president, then later as a so-called free trade agreement lobbyist, Hillary and her support for jobs offshoring and the Tata Consultancy, a financial backer, and Chelsea at Avenue Capital and McKinsey and Company, all working and profiting diligently from destroying American employment] have accomplished!
