Summary

A riveting biography that combines deep reporting and West Wing-esque storytelling to reveal the strategising, machinations, and last-minute decision making that have accompanied one of the greatest political comebacks in history.
The story of Hillary's phoenix-like rise is at the heart of HRC, a thrilling political biography that journeys deep into the heart of "Hillaryland" to discover a brilliant strategist at work. Masterfully unfolded by two White House correspondents, HRC offers a rare look inside the merciless Clinton political machine.
Drawing on over 200 top-access interviews with Hillary's intimates, colleagues, supporters, and enemies, it portrays a seasoned operator who negotiates political and diplomatic worlds with equal savvy. Loathed by the Obama team in the wake of the primary, Hillary worked to become his greatest ally, their fates intertwined in the work of reestablishing America on the world stage after the disastrous Bush years. HRC puts listeners in the room with Hillary during the most intense and pivotal moments of this era, as she mulls over the president-elect's offer to join the administration, pulls the strings to build a coalition for his war against Libya, and scrambles to deal with the fallout of the terrible events in Benghazi - all while keeping one eye focused on 2016.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Kimberly Farr captures the book's spirit, reading with an assured, deliberate style.... Farr is effective when describing both Clinton's successes and failures, enunciating every word and varying her tone to keep the book moving. There are even times when Farr winks at us, slyly ending a sentence with a pause or rise in her voice." (AudioFile)
