Hard Choices (Unabridged)

by Hillary Clinton

Open iTunes to Buy


Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America's 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future. In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted. Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of US foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm's way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women, youth, and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day. Secretary Clinton's descriptions of diplomatic conversations at the highest levels offer listeners a master class in international relations, as does her analysis of how we can best use "smart power" to deliver security and prosperity in a rapidly changing world - one in which America remains the indispensable nation.

Customer Reviews

Great read!

Full of insights and behind the scenes stories. Such a good read!

Thought it would have the truth

Good stories and an easy read. BUT, I read this book thinking it was going to be a tell all, just like I watched the interviews thinking it was going to be a come clean party. But no, she skirts the issues over and over again. All of which telling only partial truths to make herself look good. Leaving the readers wondering whats so terrible she won’t disclose all. Since we can tell she's lying by omission, then she has now lost all respect in both myself and my husbands eyes.

Easy Choice Waste of Time

The art of 'double talk' or 'saying much while not saying anything' seems to be the key of intepreting this book. Hefty volume good use as a door stop.
