Summary
  • "A veteran political journalist chronicles the post-presidential achievements and adventures of Bill Clinton, drawing on interviews with dozens of the former President's colleagues, friends, supporters and family members to examine his philanthropic work, the charges of corruption levied against him, and the ways he continues to inspire and infuriate the world,"--NoveList
  • Veteran political journalist Joe Conason brings you along with Bill Clinton as the 42nd president blazes new paths in his post-presidential career. It is unlike the second career of any other president: "Bill Clinton" is a global brand, rising from the dark days of his White House departure to become one of the most popular names in the world. Conason describes how that happened, examining Clinton's achievements, his failures, his motivations, and his civilian life. He explains why Clinton's ambitions for the world continue to inspire (and infuriate). Conason, who has covered Clinton for twenty years, interviewed him many times for this book--as well as Hillary and Chelsea and many of his friends, aides, rivals, and supporters. He has traveled with Clinton to Africa, Haiti, Israel, and across America. Clinton has earned tens of millions of dollars and raised billions for philanthropy, much of it from foreign sources, provoking questions about transparency and probity even as Hillary Clinton runs again for the presidency. Conason closely examines the financial support from other countries, corporations and wealthy individuals, while assessing the Clinton Foundation's very real, far-reaching achievements. He observes as Clinton campaigns for his wife and wonders: How would America's very first First Gentleman fare in a Hillary Clinton White House? Man of the World--starring the one and only Bill Clinton--tells the engrossing story of an extraordinary man who is still seeking to do good in the world.--From dust jacket
