A well written first person account of Hillary Clinton's time at the toughest job in the US Cabinet - Secretary of State, or as it's known in Washington, Foggy Bottom. Provides an incisive look at some of her toughest challenges, from the Benghazi nightmare to facing off against Joseph Kony of the Lord's Resistance Army to confronting Iran and its well documented WMD program. Among other things she also addresses the issues of human rights and internet freedom, and the challenges faced by the Wikileaks affair. The "hard choices" she refers to are not only deciding what to do in a crisis acting as Obama's de facto deputy, but the choices enemy states face in whether to move forward or backward. The question that is left open is whether she will chance another run at President or if she's satisfied to work at her family's foundation. But there can be no doubt she managed to put aside the "pantsuit" question and proved she was a very forceful and dedicated aide to her political rival while not afraid to speak up her own mind at the same time.
