I liked the way that she opened each new section of the book with a personal anecdote, that eased you into the issues that were to be dealt with. In short, a worthwhile read which gives a general idea of how the democratic Party views America's role in the world.
The closing lines in the epilogue - getting back to work - are a telling sign that she's not yet done and makes a nice bridge between her years of service as part the Obama Administration and her bid to be the next Democratic candidate for US President. Enjoyable and educational.
Clinton's belief in the need to compromise to achieve progress is recounted again and again, as is the importance of engagement with all kinds of countries and leaders to seek peace and the development of prosperity through incremental steps.
This does not all make for easy or entertaining reading - it is too much a careful and calculated book for that. On occasion Clinton addresses areas which may be used by her opponents to undermine her probable campaign. For example she uses anecdotes of dealing with a journalist's questions about her husband's opinion, and with keeping the location of Bin Laden totally secret even from Bill, to demonstrate her independance and professionalism. There is not much here, though, that makes for revelation about the inside working of the Obama administration or about Hillary's personal life.
Clinton's dedication to human rights, and in particular to women's rights and the rights of LGBT people, is made clear throughout, and is her belief in the value of the use of American influence through aid, cultural and educational exchange, and of the need to use what she calls 'smart power' to achieve objectives.
It is all a bit dry though, and it look me an unusually long time to read, even although i found the subject matter interesting, and her philosophy of government to be intelligent and persuasive

Hillary and Trump are a magnetic couple. They possess the same poisonous and ruinous mix of moral shortcomings.Read more
