Synopsis

Product Description (Source: NBD):

Hillary Clinton's new book of essays of stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign, has been inspired by the hundreds of quotations she has been collecting for decades: "These are the words I live by. These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times, and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer. I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers." --Hillary Clinton

Product Review (NBD):

"A disturbing autopsy on the state of America today. What Happened is an urgent plea directed not only to those concerned about America's capacity to survive, but also to all who are anxious about protecting America's international contributions to human health." --The Lancet "Contains... insights into Ms. Clinton's personality, character, and values, and the challenges confronting women in politics." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The most useful way to read What Happened is as one last instance of Clinton doing what she calls her civic duty." --Los Angeles Times "What Happened is not a standard work of this genre. It's interesting; it's worth reading; and it sets out questions that the press, in particular, has not done enough to face." --The Atlantic "This is an important book, and anyone who's worried by what happened last November 8 should pick it up." --Entertainment Weekly "Here is Clinton at her most emotionally raw.... While What Happened records the perspective of a pioneer who beat an unprecedented path that stopped just shy of the White House, it also covers territory that many women will recognize.... She demonstrates that she can mine her situation for humor." --People "An engaging, beautifully synthesized page-turner." --Slate "The writing in What Happened is engaging -- Clinton is charming and even funny at times, without trying to paint herself in too flattering of a light.... Ultimately, the book might be a historical artifact most of all -- the chronicling of what, exactly, it was like to run for president as the first woman major-party candidate (and, yes, a Clinton as well). Plenty may disagree with Clinton's opinions on what went wrong for her, but her story will still be an important part of that history when America looks back on the melee that was the 2016 election." --NPR "What Happened is a raw and bracing book, a guide to our political arena." --The Washington Post "What Happened is not one book, but many. It is a candid and blackly funny account of her mood in the direct aftermath of losing to Donald J. Trump. It is a post-mortem, in which she is both coroner and corpse. It is a feminist manifesto. It is a score-settling jubilee.... It is worth reading." --The New York Times
