about this book

President Bill Clinton’s My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

Here is the life of a great national and international figure, revealed with all his talents and contradictions. Filled with fascinating moments and insights, it is told openly, directly, in President Clinton’s own completely recognizable voice.

“William Jefferson Clinton's My Life is, by a generous measure, the richest American presidential autobiography—no other book tells us as vividly or fully what it is like to be president of the United States for eight years. Clinton had the good sense to couple great smarts with a solid education; he arrived in Washington in 1964 and has been the nation’s—or perhaps the world’s—No. 1 politics junkie ever since. And he can write—as Reagan, Ford, Nixon and Lyndon B. Johnson, to go no farther back, could not.”
—Larry McMurtry, The New York Times

“[Clinton’s] life is too fascinating, his mind too brilliant, his desire to charm too strong to permit him to produce a boring book. The combination of analytic and emotional intelligence that made him a great politician now makes him a compelling raconteur.”
—Walter Isaacson, The Washington Post

My Life is, without question, the best written U.S. presidential tome of all time.”
—Douglas Brinkley, Financial Times
