From best-selling, award-winning biographer Nigel Hamilton, this is an insightful, prodigiously researched, and wonderfully readable account of Bill Clinton’s first term in office. It shows how a well-meaning but na´ve new president failed to assert true leadership in his first two years, and then illustrates how, in an astonishing act of self-reinvention, the president turned defeat into victory.Bill Clinton: Mastering the Presidencyis a gripping tale of hubris and redemption—and a chronicle of one of the most dramatic reversals of fortune in modern American politics.
