This is a really unusual book. The first thing you've likely noticed about it is that it is written by the mother-daughter pair Hillary and Chelsea Clinton – and this book embraces its authorship. While providing extensive detail about each of the women showcased, this book frequently reads like a conversation between Hillary and Chelsea. As interesting as learning about the various women is, it is at least as intriguing to learn of their impact on the Clinton women's lives. For example, knowing that Nazis were bad from her many viewings of The Sound of Music, young Chelsea wrote to Ronald Reagan to express her opinion after he visited a cemetery where Nazis were buried. She never received a response, which led to her parents ensuring that no child's letter to the White House went unanswered during the Clinton Administration.
BOTTOM LINE: An extraordinary book well worth reading, but given that Hillary and Chelsea's voices shine through on every page, in our current political climate this book is likely best read by those who have positive feelings about the authors.
