"Books on contemporary political figures rarely have pinpoint timing, but this one does... [Allen and Parnes's] most persausive accomplishment is to show, backed by impressive detail, the ways in which Clinton never really abandoned domestic politics." -Jodi Kantor, " New York Times Book Review"
"["HRC"] provides useful context and intelligent analysis, and a highly readable account of her tenure at Foggy Bottom... pumped full of colorful you-are-there details." -Michiko Kakutani, " New York Times"
"Deeply reported... a revealing window into the le Carre-like layers of intrigue that develop when a celebrity politician who is married to another celebrity politician loses to yet another celebrity politician, and goes on to serve the politician who defeated her." -"Washington Post"
""HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton" manages the rare feat of being both important and entertaining. It opens with a juicy chapter detailing the punishment and reward of Bill and Hillary's political enemies and friends. But the meat of HRC is its narration of her role in tackling crises in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya -- an amazingly tumultuous period that provides the best preview of what a Hillary Clinton presidency might look like, at least for foreign policy." -"New York" magazine
"A character-driven psychodrama, chockablock with sweaty descriptions of its players... It's no easy feat to wring page-turning narrative juice from four years of state craft, but Allen and Parnes have relied on 200 sources...to get them the gossipy goods."--"Los Angeles Times"
"A thoroughly reported and well-written chronicle of Clinton's comeback and her tenure at the State Department." -"Christian Science Monitor"
