Hard Choices

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2014

Duration: 11 hours 48 minutes


Hillary Rodham Clinton’s inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America’s 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future.

“All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. “Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become.”

In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted.

    A very informative dissertation of the what, why and how of American diplomacy/politics. As an Australian I found it very interesting to understand ALL the activities of the Secretary of State.

    2 words... "Hillary 2016"... We're all just waiting on the official announcement... The book was great... Lengthy, but great... Dont let some obvious right wing plant make your mind up for you (as they do all their minions). Check it out for yourself... Hillary Rocks!

    Maybe I just know too much. I always loved Hillary, but now I'm so jaded by all the lies and scandals that I can't even take her seriously anymore. So sad! I just couldn't sit through the entire thing. She tries to make the reader believe she made the best decision, with what she had to go by, but I truly believe she's simply trying to cover up bad decisions with excuses. I've lost all respect. Unfortunately, however, most people will never pick up on the deception. It's disheartening!
