about

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is the first woman in U.S. history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party. She served as the 67th Secretary of State—from January 21, 2009, until February 1, 2013—after nearly four decades in public service advocating on behalf of children and families as an attorney, First Lady, and Senato...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO SHE CANNOT JUST BLAME EVERYONE AS IF IT IS THEIR FAULT! Horrible read! I expected more maturity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting I was expecting some very professional insight as to the factors playing into why she lost, but the book just felt very blamey as if it is everyone else's fault. Would not read again

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On the fence Not quite what I was expecting. Many factors are to blame for her loss (unfortunately) but finger pointing will not earn you votes or trust.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After reading this with a critical mind I was expecting more than blame and finger pointing. It's pathetic and immature that Clinton can't accept personal responsibility for her loss. She was a terrible candidate and had a hard time defeating Bernie. Only for the super-delegates in California, Bernie would have beaten her. But, according to Hillary, 'What Happened' was ... Suburban women didn't like her The Russians interferred The FBI and James Comey Facebook Twitter Wikileaks Bernie Sanders TV Executives Cable News Fake News The Democrats The Republicans Low informed voters The 'Deplorables' Content farms in Macedonia Obama winning two terms Bad polling numbers But of course Donald Trump didn't play any part in her losing. She simply did not connect with people. To her it was like she had an entitlement because of her name.
