The many dramatic moments of Secretary Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State frame her thoughts about the recent history of US foreign policy and the urgent, on-going need for American leadership in a changing world. In this truly global work, Hillary Clinton writes about her role in, and reflects on, such critical events as the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya, the transitions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Arab Spring, the pivot to the Asia-Pacific, the rise of new powers such as China, Brazil, Turkey and India, the building of diplomatic coalitions to deal with Iran and North Korea, and America's relations with important allies around the world. Secretary Clinton also addresses many of the major trends reshaping the global landscape of the 21st century including trends in economics, energy and climate change, democracy and human rights, the critical role of women and girls, technology and innovation, and health and human development. Throughout, Secretary Clinton offers vivid personal anecdotes and memories of her collaboration with President Obama and his National Security team, as well as her engagement with leaders around the world.

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.
