Hillary Clinton's memoir focuses on her eight years at the White House - what she lived through, how she felt about her experiences then and now, why she made the choices she did - in short, a very personal book. She talks about all the political events and highlights and about Bill Clinton's impeachment. She feels it is time to put the record straight on many issues on which she has not been able to speak out. The book covers her principal areas of interest such as the welfare of children, the status of women internationally and social justice. This is a woman whose steely resolve and intelligence proved the bedrock of her husband's presidency and whose courage when he let her down impressed women everywhere. Her determination to succeed in her own right provides a powerful role model.
Hillary Clinton was brought up in Chicago and educated at Wellesley College and Yale after which she practised as a lawyer and was a children's rights activist. She married Bill Clinton in 1975 and became America's First Lady when he was elected President in 1993. She was elected Senator for New York in 2000.
