Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons' return to political prominence. In the twelve years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being virtually penniless to multi-millionaires, and are arguably the most popular politicians in America'respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. But behind that rise is a never-before-told story of strategic cleverness, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for political power. Investigative reporter Daniel Halper uses a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and detailed interviews with close friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around. Clinton, Inc. exposes the relationship between President Obama, the Bush family, and the Clintons'and what it means for the future; how Bill and Hillary are laying the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign; how Vice President Biden and other Democrats are trying to maneuver around her; Chelsea' s political future; the Clintons' skillful media management; the Clintons' marriage and why it has survived; and an inside look at the Clinton's financial backers and hidden corporate enterprises. Clinton, Inc. is the key to understanding America's most powerful political couple. With 16 pages of photos.

Not sure how the previous review calls this a 'puff piece' as the author is clearly writing from a Republican POV. There's not a single chapter that offers a glowing outcome or judgement. Perhaps there were more details or scandals that could have been covered, but this is a book the Clintons' are not likely to be handing out as Christmas gifts.

Overall, I thought most of the book was fair and properly researched, although it is far too filled with unnamed sources to be a reliable, lasting insight into the legacy of the Clinton clan.

A very positive puff piece on the Clintons, without enlightening us as to just how much damage they [which means all three of them, Bill and his legislation as president, then later as a so-called free trade agreement lobbyist, Hillary and her support for jobs offshoring and the Tata Consultancy, a financial backer, and Chelsea at Avenue Capital and McKinsey and Company, all working and profiting diligently from destroying American employment] have accomplished!
