HRC by Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes

This is basically a puff piece on Secretary Clinton. It covers her defeat in 2008 and her subsequent rise.

The information stays positive as the sources are mainly Clinton allies. While this isn't a bad book, I was missing some of the full story reporting found in other political books. I was pleased that this wasn't a smear book that people on the political edges crave.

They did touch on Clinton's list of political "friends" and those who abandoned them for President Obama. That is a bit of information that we should watch as the next presidential election cycle comes around.

It is interesting to note just all Clinton has accomplished as Secretary of State. ( political opponents would claim inactivity). This lady is quite the hard worker. She logged in so many flight hours to so many countries. But what did she do?

From reading this book, one might conclude that Clinton used the Secretary's position to bolster her resume for her next election.

There wasn't much reported on Benghazi, or much of anything else that might paint a negative mark on her career - thus I call this book a puff piece.

It is a quick, fun read for the mild political junkie. Conservative Republicans will loathe this book.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by  Crown Publishing.
