about this book

Drawing from hundreds of interviews with colleagues, friends and with unique access to campaign records, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Carl Bernstein offers a complex and nuanced portrait of one of the most controversial figures of our time: Hillary Clinton. He has given us a book that enables us, at last, to address the questions Americans are insistently—even obsessively—asking: What is her character? What is her political philosophy? Who is she? What can we expect from her?


“The most reliable Hillary Clinton biography to date, a must-read for anybody closely following the 2008 campaign.” —The Boston Globe

"Engaging and illuminating; it stands as a model of contemporary political biography." —The Los Angeles Times

“A remarkably revealing portrait.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Serious, well-researched and fair. . . . Painstaking, sensitive, and elegantly written.”

“Bernstein, the famed All the President's Men journalist, is dead solid perfect in his reporting here. . . . The detail and digging on display in A Woman in Charge is stunning.” —The Chicago Sun-Times

“A full-scale biography of the former first lady and possible future president. . . . A considerable achievement.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“Sprightly written . . . . Insightful in its judgments, and studded with factual nuggets that enhance the Hillary saga.” —Salon
