Hillary Rodham Clinton s inside look at the choices and challenges she has faced is a subtle, finely calibrated work with succinct and often shrewd appraisals of the complex web of political, economic, and historical forces in play around the world ("The New York Times"). In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, Hillary Rodham Clinton expected to return to the United States Senate. To her surprise, newly elected President Barack Obama asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. "Hard Choices" is a richly detailed and compelling chronicle of Clinton s role in the foreign initiatives and crises that defined the first term of the Obama administration it teems with small, entertaining details about her interactions with foreign leaders ("Los Angeles Times"). Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. Along the way, they grappled with tough dilemmas, especially the decision to send Americans into harm s way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden. By the end of her tenure, Secretary Clinton had gained a truly global perspective on the major trends reshaping today s landscape. In "Hard Choices," a rich and lively narrative ("Entertainment Weekly"), Hillary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive. This memoir is serious, sober, and substantive ("The New York Times Book Review")."

Publishers Weekly, 2014-09-01 The once and possibly future Democratic presidential candidate looks back on her adventures as Secretary of State in this diplomatic memoir. Clinton identifies and reflects upon the many choices that defined her tenure as secretary of state, including nuclear negotiations with Iran and North Korea, the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Arab Spring, and the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans. Clinton narrates parts of the audiobook, and, although her voice is agreeable enough, her tone can be confusing. It often feels as if she is smiling or even laughing in her narration-while the text warrants this sometimes, it also feels more disruptive than enjoyable. Chalfant does a solid job of keeping a consistent and engaging tone throughout much of the production, but feels different enough from Clinton that it can feel a bit disjointed for the listener.
