I feel Clintons strongest point is that he really wants to solve problems, regardless of his personal ego. The first part deals with how we got here economically. I was impressed at his description of the shifts in circumstances since 1980 and why he says President Obama's choices and performance are better than most think. Those who disagrees with Clinton passionately would likely disagree with section one. Section 2 addresses what can be done to improve things. Clinton has always been a collector of the trivia of various policy experiments done by the USA and other nations. Section 2 is a collection of different policies are worth trying to deal with economic problems, tax policies, and other issues. One of my frustrations with the liberals and conservatives is that they are not offering a bunch of positive simple proposals that can be experimented one at a time with small initial investments. The example he has me excited about is the program to make one day retrofits on buildings affordable. The economic investment and carbon emission savings allow coal power plants to be closed instead of investing in expensive technology to clean coal power. The houses gain value. The policies have already been done on small scales in various places. I would like to see a greater amount of discussion on what simple things can we do in terms of public policy that be tested from all political perspectives. I would encourage anyone who is interested in or wonders how the government can improve things to look at what Clinton has to say; even if you disagree with most of it, he offers a compelling set of policy interventions that could make for a better USA and world. It is worth contemplating and debating.

Being an Indian, I have a great respect for President Bill Clinton for the dynamic leadership he had provided to a great country USA. Whether domestic or foreign issues he had handled during his presidency, which we learn from his Books are a great source of study for whoever who dons the role of a Leader irrespective of the size or volume he or she leads in their respective domains. This particular Book " Back to Work" is filled with so much of facts and information supported by voluminous data analysing the past, present and future of not only USA - but the revelations of the current economic global scenario is a study for any serious student of World Economy.

In a very concise and clear fashion, former president Clinton gave those who would listen amazingly practical suggestions as to how to unlock the money and bring back the economic growth in the United States that more middle class and the working poor can benefit from. You can definitely find a couple from the 46 detailed and well reasoned suggestions that relate to yourself and your own areas of expertise and start your cooperation and networking from there.

Fantastic book that focuses on specific action to turn the country around & not on ideological differences. Bill Clinton shows why his tenure as President was marked by the greatest economic performance in my lifetime, and why he is by far the greatest President of my lifetime! I say to Hell with term limits; let's elect President Clinton back into office!

First half of the book was very disappointing. He was just patting himself on the back talking about how he was always right and the other side always wrong. Finally in the last third of the book he expressed the ideas I was looking for and reminded me of why I voted for him.

Great read, straight forward, common sense humanity.

Clinton outlines a new direction to repair the damage destroying the nation by the recent republican years.

Worth every cent.

We still need smart government and honest recollections of individual achievement.

I'm basically a republican voting democrat because the republican party can't field a candidate with any common sense.. and Clinton, being this republican's favourite president, somehow manages to put A and B together and get to C in a way that nobody could argue with
