This book book was a fun listen. The only problem was that it crammed so much info into 5.5 hrs. I didnt go into the book thinking that I was going to get an in-depth break down of the Bosnia/Kosovo conflicts. The book is a vast overview of politics and world wide affiars covering a ten year window. The point of "Clinton's pretty young wife" was used to contrast the Clinton's youth to the Bush's age. Comparing a young blonde Hillary and Tipper to an elder gray Barbra. The point made about Gingrich's "right wing religious fundamentalists" is true as well. That is his legacy in the Republican party. That issue is addressed because he used those issues to cut Clinton's political power and limit his effectiveness at home and overseas. If you enjoy modern history and politics you will enjoy this book.

This book was very hard to take for anyone that didn't vote for Clinton - twice. If you want to find out what went on in Bosnia/Kosovo find another book. Halberstam wastes my attention with too little insight into the Balkans and too much so-called insight into the Clinton administration; I don't need to hear about "Clinton's pretty young wife", or about Newt Gingrich's support by "right wing regilious fundamentalists" to understand the history of the Balkans and the conflict there in the 1990's.
