What Happened - Hillary Clinton Book Description

A TIME MAGAZINE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR AND NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

    I think this is the only book to ever be written that has the question and answer as the title of the book.

    Really well written, the audiobook is also nice to listen to. Gives insight into her view and how her campaign felt. Even if you don’t agree with her or like her hard to say she didn’t hit every topic. If you dislike Hillary you won’t enjoy it regardless of what she says. If you are just trying to see one campaigns point of view this is a must listen to/ read.

    The lack of self awareness is astonishing. Neither candidate was fit to run and worst of all today she’s in worse shape than Trump.
  • First book that succeeded to answer its question in the title

    Read no further. Question: what happened? Answer: Hillary Clinton. Every thing after that is pure horse excrement.

    Why is she trying to explain what happened using her own opinions? Her reign has ended. She’s nobody’s president except in her own delusional mind. When she’s indicted, she can then ask “What Happened.”
  • Trump is what happened!
