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 presidency

    Here is the life of a great national and international figure, revealed with all his talents and contradictions, told openly, directly, in his own signature style. Download and start listening now!

      " I always had respect for him, but this took it a step further. I just think he is brilliant and such a good speaker it doesnt seem like it should be so. usually when they are articulate they are bullshitting. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pooja | 12/20/2013

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alma | 11/10/2013

      " Clinton's autobiography is long but well worth the read if you want to get the slightest clue about the dirty tricks he faced in D.C. while trying to keep his campaign promises. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Chin | 10/31/2013

      " I'm a Clinton fan. I gave this three stars because this book is more like his speech to the Democratic convention in '88 than his speech to the convention in '2012. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison Wade | 2/23/2012

      " I never made it the whole way through this book. What I read wasn't bad, and it certainly made me like Clinton a little more, but I don't think anyone is so important that their autobiography needs to be this long. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey | 2/7/2012

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deodand | 5/11/2011

      " 2.5 stars. The beginning was quite good, but once you reach the part about Clinton's presidency, he starts mentioning a lot of the people who helped him along the way. I guess this is his way of thanking them, and it's nice of him to do such a thing, but I got bored reading shout-outs. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

      " Audio Book. The title is wrong. If that is really what he wants people to know about his life, that is sad. It should be my political career. The whole book he is "doing battle with the far right republicans." He continually tries to make them look p "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dinesh | 4/21/2011

      " A bit rambling during certain parts, but overall a good examination of the Clinton presidency from the man himself. "
