"Well researched, well written and with plenty of inside access, it makes a strong case that Hillary is set to run again - and makes you hope she does." -- Alastair Campbell "Allen and Parnes who have researched their subject assiduously and write in clear, readable prose, have written a book peppered with telling anecdotes." Sunday Times "Crammed with revelations about Mrs Clinton's service with Team Obama." Economist "It is the correct starting point for an appraisal of a compelling character who might, at the age of 69 in January 2017, be sworn in as the most powerful woman in the history of the world. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, both respected political journalists who cover the day-to-day of the White House and Capitol Hill, start in the moment of defeat and plot "a tale of political resurrection for which the final chapters remain unwritten" ... Whether or not she finally breaks the glass ceiling, she will make a tremendous story." The Times, BOOK OF THE WEEK "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
