Amazon.com Review

The gamy tale told by Andersen (a biographer of Jack and Jackie Kennedy) is heartbreaking because it portrays Bill Clinton as a rapist, and because the juiciest of Andersen's scary stories are the toughest to pin down. Lots of his sources are anonymous, and when there's been conflicting public testimony, he tends to go with the most lurid accusations. If Bill really had a 30-year affair with Dolly Kyle Browning, one supposes he might have nicknamed her "Pretty Girl," but when she testifies that Hillary's body odor was overwhelming, one wants corroboration.

Does Bill really proudly check off the days on his calendar when he doesn't cheat on Hillary? Did he chase Barbra Streisand around a piano, have rough sex with Miss America, grope a woman's breasts in the bathroom at his own wedding reception, and seduce a major campaign contributor's future niece-in-law at her engagement party? Did he bed Susan "Hot Pants" McDougal, rock groupie "Sweet Sweet Connie" Hamzy, Robyn "Thumbs" Dickey, Gennifer "Pookie" Flowers, three beauty queens, 30 different women while campaigning in Arkansas, and hundreds of others? Did Bill hit up 50 ex-lovers for campaign cash? Did a prostitute he met while jogging near the governor's mansion bear his child? Does Bill call Hillary "Hilla the Hun" and "The Warden," and did she bed suicidal White House legal advisor Vince Foster? Did stress over Bill's satyriasis send Hillary and Chelsea to the hospital? Are the Clintons as cruel, destructive, and hopelessly in love as Andersen claims? Who knows? If not, this is the raciest first-family fiction since Primary Colors. --Tim Appelo

From Booklist

"Outing" should be Andersen's middle name. Busting out with the success of his The Day Diana Died, Andersen reveals things about the Hillary and Vincent Foster affair. Bonnie Smothers

Many people have put this book down as trash. I do not. I couldn't put the book down as it fascinated me. It reveals Bill's and Hillary's lives from childhood to their marriage to the presidency. It tells of how they met and all of Hillary's hygiene habits - which were few - during her college days. (I was in college when they were and I shaved my legs, used deodorant, and washed and combed my hair. Why Hillary didn't is a mystery to me.) There were facts in this book that I had not read or heard about before. Bill is a Rhodes scholar. Hillary cussed and hollered at Bill 85% of their marriage. She knew that he was a womanizer before she married him and married him anyway. Before the White House, she had him investigated by private detectives and knew of his huge amount of indiscretions so her boo-hoo sobbing over the Monica thing is redundant. Both had hidden agendas when they married each other. She could ride on Bill's coattails to the White House and Bill could pick her brain when he needed to. Maybe Hillary really loved Bill, but Bill married her for political reasons only. He calls her "The Warden" to many of his conquests, ladies of the evening and long-standing girlfriends. What kind of love is that? The author did not take sides - he just wrote his interviews and findings in a very interesting and easy-to-read forum. I knew Hillary was a cold woman and Bill was likeable and easy, but with a temper out of the public eye. This book reveals behind-the-scenes instances of these character flaws. Did you know Bill was found groping a woman in the bathroom at his and Hillary's wedding reception? Did you know the extent of Vince and Hillary's affair...just how serious it really was?Read more ›

Excellent book. Buy it; it gives tremendous insights into the Clintons.

Yes, this book is about trash. It's about the Clintons...

Google "Bill and Hillary: A Life of Violating People"

This book lays out the over the top dysfunction of the Clintons page after page after page. How in the world did this pair of jokers climb all the way to the top of the heap.

Anderson details how they destroyed themselves in the process.

Hillary and Bill "married" on Oct. 11, 1975
Bill celebrates by making out with another girl
in the bathroom at the "wedding" reception!

A longtime friend of the Clintons who went to their "wedding" reception says she was "totally floored" when she pushed open a bathroom door - at the reception!

She saw "Bill passionately kissing a young woman. He was fondling her breasts. I was so shocked I just closed the door quickly and quietly. They never knew I saw them." [Bill and Hillary, p. 150]

When it comes to the Clintons there are dozens if not hundreds of anecdotes like that. And Hillary was covering for this guy for decades in her humiliation-a-thon. Crazy, huh?

I bought the book to get an idea of how the Clintons work and how they got where they are. What keeps them going, what keeps them together? I was not dissapointed but I was sadened by the insight. While the tale seems to hit the highlights of their journy together with more honesty than much of what is written about them, it is not spellbinding. I don't know if it the writing or the subject. As the Clinton presidency nears the end we may not have seen the last of their political ambition. It is worth reading in order to understand what drives this ambitious couple.

I could not put the book down, it is both reviling andshocking. The flow was excellant and provides Americans with a totalinsite of the most disgraced Presidential couple in American history in my opinion.
Also, I have just completed 'BETRAYED' and it is an excellant book. I truly HOPE they both fade from future political office so our institutions of goverment may begin to heal, along with the American people.

As one who enjoys peeking through keyholes almost as much as Ken Starr, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed Andersen's book. Of course, I also liked "Jackie After Jack." Perhaps it's all a pack of lies, but then isn't EVERY aspect of the Clinton legacy just a pack of lies? Nothing anyone could say about the Clintons would shock or surprise me at this point. Frankly, I found the *reviews* posted on this page almost as entertaining and engaging as the book. It would appear that the CMMMM (Clinton Minnion Malevolent Marketing Machine) is in full trot on this page. You folks give me giggles.

This book is probably 90% true, but who cares. My stock portfolio is growing and the economy is booming so I am dancing in the streets.This is Clinton country where money rules over values and common sense. What will we do when these two wonderful people leave office.We need them to take care of us, and I hope my children grow up to be just like them. They are the ultimate role models.

Format: Hardcover
This book is not the inside story of the Worlds' most famous couple, but it is an enjoyable read all the same. Perhaps we'll have to wait a few more years to know the true ins-and-outs of this relationship. Bill is a fascinating man - the way he held on to not only Office but his marriage is almost unbelievable; Hillary, equally strong, but in a more subtle ways. I came to this book expected scandle, but realised that no matter how powerful a couple might be, behind closed doors they are very much human and quite, quite ordinary.
