Editorial Reviews

" . . . will most please those who share, in the words of Bamberger's introduction, an 'endless fascination with all things Hillary.'"—Publishers Weekly"Whether Hillary Clinton's candidacy for president gives you a flitter of excitement or a pit of dread, these 28 essays in Love Her, Love Her Not are an election season must-read. Though each is unique in its point of view and assessment of her, together they remind us why 2016 is going to be a crucial year in our nation's political history. After reading Joanne Bamberger's expertly curated selection, you'll be ready to be a guest on Bill Maher, even if it's just from your couch." —Angela Matusik, executive digital editor, InStyle"In Love Her, Love Her Not, Joanne Bamberger sets the stage for rethinking what we already know about Hillary Clinton. Bamberger examines the social and political dynamics that brought us to this historic electoral moment and then hands the stage to some of today's best women pundits and writers to answer our biggest question about the woman most of us refer to simply as 'Hillary': Why are we so conflicted about her as with no other politician?" —Lisa Belkin, Senior National Correspondent, Yahoo News"Each one of these entertaining and insightful essays made me think in a new way about Hillary Clinton. Love Her, Love Her Not is a must-read before the 2016 election." —Leslie Sanchez, political analyst and author of You've Come a Long Way, Maybe: Sarah, Michelle, Hillary and the Shaping of the New American Woman"Think you know Hillary Clinton? Think again! Just in time for 2016, Love Her, Love Her Not is an indispensable guide to the woman who's already put 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling and may be poised to do a whole lot more."—Krystal Ball, former MSNBC host and congressional candidate"Bamberger's Love Her, Love Her Not is a book every American should read before casting a ballot in the 2016 Presidential election. With precision and skillful editing, Bamberger assembles an influential collection of diverse voices to give us a chorus of smart and sometimes controversial opinions about one of the most important political figures in history. Regardless of the outcome of the election, this book is a winner!"—Julie Burton, President of the Women's Media Center"Look no further than this collection of smart, witty, and provocative essays by some of today's most interesting women writers to refine what you think about a future Clinton presidency. Love Her, Love Her Not is definitely the book to prepare you for all conversations about Hillary as we head to 2016. Thanks, Joanne Bamberger, for bringing us these essential writings."—Carol Jenkins, Emmy-winning journalist and executive producer of the award-winning documentary, What I Want My Words to Do to You"I didn't know how many feelings women had about Hillary-hell, I didn't know how many feelings *I* had about Hillary-until I read Joanne Bamberger's anthology, which was far more hilarious and thought-provoking and surprising than it has any right to be, given that this is a woman who has been in the public eye for decades now. Instructive, and never reductive, for this upcoming election season."—Elisa Camahort Page, SheKnows Media Senior Vice President and BlogHer Co-founder
