A decade-and-a-half after William Jefferson Clinton first took the oath of office, biographer Nigel Hamilton tells the riveting story of what was possibly the greatest self-reinvention of a president in office in modern times. The Clinton presidency began disastrously and deteriorated in a series of fiascoes. How Bill Clinton faced up to his failures and refashioned himself in the White House thereafter is the focus of this hitherto unwritten story. With his landslide win in the 1996 presidential election, Clinton began his second term as the undisputed, tremendously popular leader of the Western world.
In vivid prose, this riveting narrative charts Clinton's dramatic reversal of fortune and his ultimate triumph over himself and his foes, a powerful reminder of what a great president can accomplish.

Biographer Nigel Hamilton takes an unbiased look at the controversial and highly talked about presidency of William Jefferson Clinton--the ups and downs, highs and lows, and, yes, the sex scandal that nearly ended it all. Hamilton writes with an eye to the utmost detail yet never ceases to compel and entertain his readers. James Adams delivers the work in a tone that projects its importance, and his ear-pleasing Arkansas accent brings an air of realism. Hamilton offers his own take on the events in question but never stands on a soapbox to preach his own ideals and opinions on the matters in question. The result is a truly intriguing account of what it's like to be president of the United States. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
