"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 this audiobook 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 listeners 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.

Should this be changed to Fiction? Yes, please!
I just couldn't continue listening to this woman's jabs and lack of responsibility! You would think her husband was a saint and not someone accused of rape for her to be so disgusted by our current president. I'm not going to defend Trump, but this woman needs to come back to reality and get in touch with the average American. Never have I heard someone so out of touch with reality. As a Latina, I did not support her one bit. She doesn't not take accountability for her mistakes and is very untrustworthy. For her to blame "white men" is just adding insult to injury. I know plenty of Mexican Americans who understood what Trump was trying to say and did not support Hillary's campaign.
She speaks about his sexist views yet accepted money from countries that kill homosexuals, don't allow women to drive, and are truly sexist. She's a talking contradiction.
Anything that will help me erase what I just heard from my mind.
Maybe hearing someone else's voice would have helped this book, but this woman isn't likeable even through audio.
If you purchase this book, be aware it is fiction and she does not take responsibility for her actions. She blames Comey's letter for her failure. This is like a murderer accusing the police for getting incarcerated and not allowing them to continue to kill! This woman doesn't' realize she committed a crime that others would have gone to jail for. Rather than blaming Comey, she should be thanking her husband for meeting with the AG prior to her investigation closing.
