Hillary lists her accomplishments.
--- She ordered the theft of UN messages and trained 5000 "activists" to destabilize foreign governments. She upholds US bombing because "America was not seeking dominance."
Pakistan's objections to droning its villagers were "temper tantrums".
--- She blames Putin for resisting US control of Ukraine and demolition of Syria. Putin uses our invasions as an excuse for military upgrades. We own the Muslim Near East, but Russia should stay out of Russian-populated Crimea. Russia's demand for payment for its natural gas amounts to blackmail.
--- Hillary claims that she, not Sarkozy, led the campaign against Gaddafi (and thus deserves credit for wrecking Libya and turning it over to terrorists). She still blames a video for the Benghazi disaster. Our slain ambassador was foolish to go there. Hillary was heroic in the crisis.
--- She blames Assad for withstanding US-backed terrorists. His poison gas reserve was a serious threat to America. She ignores our own gas arsenal. Hillary urged Obama to invade Syria, but he refused. She was tougher.
--- She upholds the Saudis, who enslave women, and condemns Assad, who maintains their freedom. She denounces peaceful Iranian nuclear development, but upholds Israel's large nuke hoard. She denounces human rights violations, but supports Israel's oppression of Palestinians. She says Latin America was held back by Soviet meddling -- not by two centuries of US conquest, subversion, and exploitation.
--- She condemns dehumanization, but dehumanizes fetuses.
--- She would protect Black wages by admitting millions of new illegal workers.
--- She supports both religious freedom and forced participation in gay weddings. She filled the State Dept with gays, and pressured Muslim leaders to spread sodomy in their countries. At a meeting, Hillary and Admiral Harris urged Russian officials to have gays in their military; she was offended when the Russians asked if Admiral Harris was gay.
--- She denounces Manning and Snowden. We must steal foreign secrets, while concealing ours. She touts her cyber insight. (Later she would plead ignorance of classified email rules.)
--- Hillary confirms the Clinton family motto: Better to get caught trying than not to try at all.

The hardest choice Hillary ever had to face was what flavor of cake to eat. The good thing about this book however is if you run out of toilet paper you could always use the torn pages from this book....
... But then again you might get symptoms of poison ivy.

Something as easy as telling people only one of her grandparents was an immigrant and she had to lie to us and say all four were. I want to read her Wall Street speeches.

Whatta joke. Hillary is a joke and America will be doomed if we elect her. Like come on, do you really wanna elect a Commander and Chief thats under a full on FBI investigation for doing illegal things? Wow, sad. Hillary does one thing really, really good tho. She is a excellent liar.

Since Mrs. Clinton is a moderate conservative with Wall Street ties and support, I'm surprised at the negative criticism from those in the conservative camp.

Shouldn't this book be a work of fiction?

Yeah, real hard choices like whether to let some Americans live or not (Bengazi). Or whether to turn over atomic secrets to Communist China. Or whether to send CLASSIFIED INFO over a private email server. C'mon people!
The hard choice of whether to run for president or not must not have been that hard, because she is obviously running NOW! So much for being satisfied with working at her family's foundation. Who actually thought she would be satisfied with that? HA! Hats off to stargladiator on this one.
I agree with trunk-monkey- a work of fiction is just about everything she says really.
