BOOK REVIEW

BILL CLINTON by Michael Tomasky
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Jan. 24, 2017

"Tomasky's slim, journalistic account contains few surprises for older readers familiar with that era, but they should wait a generation until the dust settles and scholars determine if Clinton deserves his current respectable rating in the pantheon of presidents."
The latest in the excellent American Presidents series explores the life and career of Bill Clinton (b. 1946). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

BIOGRAPHY
Released: May 20, 1993

"There are a few b&w photos, but the lack of a bibliography or an index will limit use. (Biography. 10+)"
A straightforward account that does a good job of pulling together basic facts and stories made familiar in recent periodical literature, with Clinton's childhood, education, political rise, period as governor, and presidential campaign covered in equal measure. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

BILL CLINTON by Nigel Hamilton
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 7, 2003

"Still, for the moment it's the most complete life yet of the man, and though it will at turns puzzle both fans and detractors of Clinton and his legacy, it's well worth reading for all concerned."
An overblown (and this is but the first volume, ending with the crushing defeat of Bush I), often out of tune, but oddly fascinating account of William Jefferson Clinton's pre-White House life and career. Read full book review >

CLINTON & ME by Mark Katz
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR

"'Humor writers are funny people who are constantly in the process of convincing the world that they are indispensably funny.' In a nutshell. (b&w illustrations, not seen)"
Katz fits snugly into his self-described role as an "emotionally needy joke writer" for the Clinton administration, though readers get all 40 of his years in this memoir. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: March 20, 1995

"This one is for the haters—those who hate Clinton, and those who hate journalism. (40 photos)"

BOOK REVIEW

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON by Karen Blumenthal
YOUNG ADULT
Released: Jan. 12, 2016

"A richly detailed study that is as perceptive as it is engaging. (photos, timeline, bibliography, chapter notes) (Biography. 12-18)"
Like Cynthia Levinson's Hillary Rodham Clinton: Do All the Good You Can (2016), Blumenthal's biography covers Clinton's childhood to her current campaign to become the Democratic candidate for president in 2016 but, written for an older audience, goes into greater depth and detail.

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON by Donnie Radcliffe
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Sept. 20, 1993

"Still, a readable primer to fill in until the big book—and there must be one—comes along. (First printing of 75,000)"
From veteran Washington Post journalist and First Lady-watcher Radcliffe: a fulsome biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton that's long on quotes from F.O.H.'s and F.O.B.'s and short on any from those who might be a tad more objective. Read full book review >
