Reviews

"One of the few balanced studies of Clinton. Worth keeping in mind as the campaigns heat up."--Library Journal

"An engrossing look at the behind-the-scenes 'psychodrama' of the Clinton White House."--Booklist

"The complex individual shines through Troy's eloquent rendering. Highly recommended."--Choice
"A valuable primer on a first lady who is both a cultural icon and a political force. Troy's portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows how her elasticity as a public figure saved her husband's presidency and ultimately led her to pursue power in her own right."--Eleanor Clift, contributing editor, Newsweek

"A balanced and astute assessment of one of the most complex, polarizing, and compelling political figures of our time--a book that manages to be psychologically revealing without ever sensationalizing."--Margaret Talbot, author of Gender, Power, and Culture

"The Hillary Clinton that emerges from Troy's book is not a caricature, but a real person, possessing virtues and flaws, living a life marked by both achievement and failure."--Alonzo L. Hamby, author of For the Survival of Democracy

"A cogent, clear-eyed, and timely view of the most prominent and, arguably, controversial first lady in modern American history."--Barbara Kellerman, author of The Political Presidency
