Bill is Back
This book will really flesh out the listener's picture of Bill Clinton. Details of his childhood forward are drawn clearly and presented in a most interesting way. The reading is great. The book sets out to present a psychological profile of the former president and seeks to explain his behavior and leadership patterns. Perhaps the first 75% of the book follows the psychological theme which - though perhaps speculative - was interesting. The last portion of the book, while worthwhile, is primarily biography. If one has not read a biography of Clinton. This is not definitive, but worth the time.

Would you try another book from John D. Gartner and/or Stephen Hoye?
Any additional comments?
I thought this book would offer some psychological insights into Clinton. It is so clearly written from a liberal who is mesmerized by Clinton and he is not objective at all. Take for example, he thought Clinton has a halo around his head when he first met him!!!
All during the book he refers to any republicans as evil and he offers armchair diagnoses for Ken Star and the rest of the "evil" republicans.
I don't even think I can finish this book. I bet Hillary herself could have been more objective than this author.
