BILL CLINTON by Michael Tomasky
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR

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."
