Interesting and Fair 2000/7/21
投稿者 Alex - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
At a time when political correctness rules the coverage of the Clintons, and their many flaws are handled with the utmost caution, I found this book to be a refreshing breath of fresh air. It is true that the author probably does not like the Clintons very much, but this may be because -- as his book reveals -- they are not really very likable people. A book well worth taking a look at!

An Unexpected Pleasure... 2000/7/25
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I liked this book. In fact, I really liked this book. Rather than being gossip column drivel, I found it objective, intelligent and refreshing in both its content and approach. If this (prolific) author is to be discredited on the basis of his link to The National Enquirer, let's not forget that Clinton's own counsel, David Kendall, is also The National Enquirer's lawyer. This detail did not stop Kendall from being chosen as the president's top attorney and in fact, may have worked in his favor, since much of the Clinton presidency has turned out to be a tabloid sideshow. Well done Mr. Oppenheimer, and two thumbs up.

I learned why people like the Clintons 2000/7/24
投稿者 Laura Hornbeck - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Because the author goes into so much detail about both Bill and Hillary Clinton's childhood and personal families, I was able to get a fuller, more human picture of them. It was very helpful to me, as I have been honestly unable to comprehend why anybody would trust or like either one of the Clintons. Reading this gossipy book with all its quotes from childhood friends, stories from Hillary's mother, brothers, cousins; the friends of Bill's mother, etc. honestly helped me to flesh out these people and realize that they are not, after all, monsters. They have become something much different from what they envisioned in their youth because of their willingness to sacrifice personal principle for political power, but they are not monsters.
I appreciated learning that many people liked Hillary at Wellesley and Yale Law School because she was genuinely friendly and did many kind things for others. I could imagine why Bill fell for Hillary and vice-versa, and how their relationship began as a genuinely passionate one.
Likewise, I found it very believable that Hillary said something to the effect that she would never be able to go through all the rigors of politics if she didn't know that "they were saving the world." From the beginning of their relationship, Hillary believed that Bill was a semi-messianic figure who would attain the presidency, that he and she would be able to get into the government and create lots of positive (to her mind) changes that would help lots of people. Just like any messianic figure, people would oppose him. Unfortunately, that's a delusion. If she had been less idealistic and more realistic, she might have demanded faithfulness and either forced him to change or divorced him. Either of those outcomes would have spared us from the Clinton presidency. At any rate, I liked this book very much.

This book answers the question -- who is she? 2000/7/22
投稿者 "paumanock" - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I have just finished reading this book and think it is terrific -- in fact, I am buying several copies and passing them on to my friends.
I have often wondered what drives Mrs. (and Mr., for that matter) Clinton, what is her background (beyond the much lauded Wellesley Commencement speech), and where did she come from? Oppenheimer's book answered all my questions handily. Although I am a lifelong Democrat and inveterate newshound, I find I do not know all that much about Mrs. Clinton or her past. And if she is going to attempt to be the next Senator from New York, I think we owe it to ourselves to find out what she believes in and what she hopes to accomplish.
Although some of the incidents have been covered ad nauseum (hello -- Monica!) in the past, Oppenheimer does a more than skillful (and, I think, fair handed) job in revealing Mrs. Clinton's family, her relationship with her husband (boy, there's an interesting relationship)and what she hopes to "do" for us, the public. Now, why Mrs. Clinton feels compelled to do anything for us at all, or even if we want her to, is another matter -- and one which Oppenheimer fully explores.
Don't listen to all the spin doctors on the television set. Whether you admire or dislike Mrs. Clinton, you owe it to yourself to check out this bio and find out the truth about her, then make up your own mind.

However one feels about the Clintons, or The National Enquirer, or all the hoopla, this book is a must read, and must be read with an open mind. Like many, I too was skeptical, but once I got started, found I could not put it down. The writing is fast-paced, detailed and brilliant. I am surprised to learn that this author has written other (albeit unauthorized) biographies, all highly reviewed, and I look forward to reading more of his work.
