Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

At its best, this pastiche of excerpts from Hillary Rodham Clinton's interviews, speeches, offhand remarks and TV appearances provides a warm, intimate, informal portrait of the First Lady as woman, mother, wife, public figure, politician, activist, mainstream feminist and president's helpmeet. Assembled by freelancer Osborne without Rodham Clinton's assistance, the book reproduces her comments on topics ranging from her marriage, raising Chelsea and her relationship with her mother-in-law to her religious faith, health care, abortion, the Whitewater investigation and violence on television. She displays a resilient sense of humor, an iron will and a keen ambition, the last of which, one senses, has been subordinated to her devotion to her husband. Yet, while admirers of Mrs. Clinton will relish the personal nuggets, others may find this scissors-and-paste job a soporific exercise weighed down by too many platitudes, bromides and words carefully chosen for their effect on listeners?a compilation that does not do justice to her intelligence and political acumen. 50,000 first printing.

From Library Journal

The First Lady's thoughts and visions are reduced to banalities in this compilation of her written and spoken words, arranged by topic. Snippets that include her views on her marriage, her husband, her daughter, and life in the White House portray Hillary Rodham Clinton as a one-dimensional dispenser of homilies. Her remarks about women, child welfare, and other policy issues are more substantive but are repetitive and appear to have been made at a political pep rally. The evolution of Hillary Clinton as a political force in her own right is well presented in David Maraniss's First in His Class (LJ 3/1/95) and Roger Morris's Partners in Power (LJ 8/96). This book does not do justice to Mrs. Clinton as a dynamic yet controversial leader. Not recommended.?Karl Helicher, Upper Merion Township Lib., King of Prussia, Pa.

Format: Hardcover
Hilary Clinton, One of the most exciting rising stars on our political landscape sets out in her own voice a gentle and pleasing survey of the people, places, events, and values which have filled her life.
Successful is her portrait of self and family as defender of right when viewing the attacks suffered by the family at the hands of political rivals.
Her tenderness towards her father, husband and daughter shin through while taking nothing from her independence as a strong political figure.
Voice is an excellent read and may be highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Basically a collection of her answers and speeches, that she has presented all over the US. Her views on American lifestyles and how important a secure family is to a child. Hillary Clinton's years at Wellesley. It is a no nonsense kind of book. Written in a very down to earth style.

I am not sure why this empty little book went to print, apparently for those who are already Hillary lovers? Certainly it was not done for those like me, trying to discover if she has ever said anything important, or not.

She has not. Like "Living History," I was expecting more, and again, did not get it.

Whether you love, hate, or, are indifferent to Hillary, don't waste your Eighteen Dollars! One star.
