The title and cover art of this book are misleading. The author does not seem to have interviewed Clinton to support this work.

This work could more aptly be titled " Rebecca Shambaugh's Positive Impressions of Hillary Clinton based on information from media outlets you already have access to."

I got this book because I greatly admire Hillary Clinton's leadership and resilience. As the author rightly points out, Hillary has successfully faced overcome innumerable personal and professional challenges, in full view of the world's media.

While the book has interesting insights, it is NOT really about Hillary's leadership secrets. The author makes statements about good attributes for leadership, and then selectively uses examples from HC's life to illustrate them. But most frustratingly, most of the book is devoted to the author's own personal and professional grandstanding. It reads like a "I did this and I did that". References to Hillary are few and far between.

Overall, the material is useful, but the title is highly misleading. It seems like a cynical ploy to use Hillary Clinton's name to advertise and sell her own services as a consultant. An unmistakable message is the implied call to hire the author for your next leadership development exercise.

This book made no sense if it was supposed to be about Hillary Clinton’s leadership capabilities. I’m surprised that anybody would want to write a book on the leadership secrets of Hillary Clinton. A better title would have been The Lack of Leadership Skills of Hillary Clinton. Her entire career has been on the coat tails of her husband. He was the one that got her elected as Senator. She won’t ever divorce Bill Clinton because she needs him for her run as president. Just because her husband was president doesn't mean she is qualified to be a president. That's like saying my wife is qualified to be an engineer because I’m an engineer. Look at the lack of leadership skills when she was Secretary of State. She was so afraid of her own performance that she had her on email server to hide what she was doing.

We see many incompetent people in power just because they were at the right place at the right time.

I would agree with other reviews that this book was written using Hillary’s name just to push the author’s own product. Good gimmick because many people would buy it just for Hillary’s name and then realize they were ripped off.

Unbelievable. Admiring someone for political reasons who actually hasn't had any "leadership" success is hardly worth a book on "leadership secrets". I'm sure the author's slavish dedication to re-framing a lack of leadership as leadership replete with personal stories and no access to the subject will get her accolades from the usual sycophants.

Part of the optional reading list for my husband's college course. He was disappointed that it only described her methods and did not have many actual quotes by her.

The book is not horribly and is likely a three star book plus or minus one depending on your individual preferences. I am rating it one star because the title is misleading. The book does not seem to have any real insights into Hillary Clinton. The author offers fairly generic leadership advice and adds in some positive stories about Mrs. Clinton from time to time.

Overall, on its own merits as a leadership book, there are better choices. There are better books available about Hillary Clinton as well. Most people would do better to select a great book about leadership and/or a great book about Hillary Clinton instead of this one that does not really stand out in either area. If there is someone reading this book who wants a good introduction to each though you could do worse.

I would say this is around a three or four star book on the leadership portion and a two or three star book on the Hillary Clinton portion. As a composite though it fails in my opinion. The author seems to have a very good knowledge about leadership and some talent as am author that will likely improve with experience. I would read other leadership books by her if she write more because the leadership portion of the book did have some strong sections. Perhaps my rating is a little harsh because even a title such as "Leadership Secrets Inspired by Hillary Clinton" would seem much better to me and raise my opinion to two or three stars.
