President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts to serving the public. It shows us the progress of a remarkable American, who made the unlikely journey from Hope, Arkansas, to the White House.
President Clinton's audiobook is also the most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, encompassing not only the high points and crises but the way the presidency actually works.
It is the gripping account of a president under concerted and unrelenting assault orchestrated by his enemies on the Far Right and how he survived and prevailed.
It is a treasury of moments caught alive, among them:

The roller-coaster ride of the 1992 campaign

The extraordinarily frank exchanges with Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole

The cost, both public and private, of the scandal that threatened the presidencyHere is the life of a great national and international figure, revealed with all his talents and contradictions, told openly, directly, in his own completely recognizable voice.


Beschreibung von Audible

Why we think it's Essential: Bill Clinton built his political career by explaining, persuading, and building rapport. He did it with world leaders, politicians, and the American people. He does it here, building a bond with listeners as he shares his perspective on the past 50 years of history - his and the country's. We've chosen the abridged edition over the unabridged, because hearing Clinton's give voice to his own story is a unique experience. His well known grasp of details and his charm come across in every chapter. — Beth Anderson



" My Life is, by a generous measure, the richest American presidential autobiography, no other book tells us as vividly or fully what it is like to be president of the United States for eight years." ( The New York Times Book Review)

Jene guten Zeiten

Es liegt vielleicht an meiner eigenen Vergangenheit, das ich mich diesem Hörbuch zugewendet habe. Ich war während der Zeit, in der Bill Clinton Präsident war, als Berater in den USA. Es war eine wunderbare Zeit, eine Zeit des Wirtschaftswachstum mit sozialem Gewissen und eine Zeit des fast grenzenlosen Optimismus, vor der Zeit des Crash, des 9/11 und der Neo-Cons. In seiner Biografie sagt Clinton: 'Betrachtet einen Präsidenten nicht nach der Statistik, sondern wie es dem einzelnen während dieser Zeit ergangen ist'.
Und ich denke, diese Faszination spiegelt sich in diesem Hörbuch wieder. Ich habe es fast in einem durchgehört und es war ein neues Hörerlebnis, Bill Clinton selbst für einige Stunden zuzuhören. Nicht der Inhalt der Biografie ist faszinierend, denn neues erfährt man (natürlich) nicht. Es ist die Kombination aus den Zeitgeschichten, Erinnerungen und natürlich die Tatsache, das er selbst es - sehr professionell, sehr abwechslungsreich - vorliest.
Mein Fazit: Wer Zeitgeschichte noch einmal Revue passieren lassen möchte, sollte sich dieses Hörbuch anhören.
Und im Anschluss dann das Buch von Hillary Clinton, ebenfalls von ihr selbst vorgelesen.
Fazit: Eine Geschichte aus mehreren Perspektiven, eine Reise in die kurze Vergangenheit eines Optimismus, den wir heute auch wieder gebrauchen könnten.
Und für alle Voyeure: Wer diese Bücher auf die ML-Story reduzieren will, verpasst die wahren Geschichten.

Not only for Clinton fan

Bill Clinton writes a very interesting account of his life in an inviting conversational style. His story-telling approach easily draws the listener into the events of his life. I especially enjoyed the amount of time he spent discussing his childhood. He expresses the pain and isolation that he felt very well. He is a talented communicator and this comes through as he tells his story himself. The words flowed one after another and I was easily captivated by the details. Bill Clinton leaves the reader inspired by his biography. Its motivating the reader to accomplish their own goals. An upbeat former president, Clinton is still a leader and motivational speaker. A must read for anyone who is political interested or just needs direction in their life.
