Description

2018 Audie Award Finalist for Autobiography/Memoir and Excellence in Marketing

"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 this audiobook 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 listeners 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.

Informed Voter? Think Again

I struggled to finish this book, not because it was boring or deficient in some way. I struggled because the 2016 election results are still painful, particularly with each fresh new horror coming from The White House every other day.

I thought I was informed during the 2016 election cycle, but in listening to this book it's abundantly clear that I was not. This lesson alone made listening to this book a worthy endeavor. There were large portions of her platform that I was completely unaware of, and although I was aware that the media coverage leading into the election was sensational and playing into 45's hands, I didn't sense what was missing: actual discussion of how to solve America's many problems.

Good listen. I suggest it.

Clarity in the middle of the storm

I, like many, woke up to the news of Trump as President and was dumbfounded. I don't claim to be a devout Hillary fan, far from it, but I saw her as a qualified candidate for President, something I couldn't even consider saying about Trump. I have spent the last couple of years scratching my head at how he became President and how he continues to have support. I appreciated the way Hillary laid out the facts and her truths about what happened on the campaign trail. I have several blockers specifically for Facebook and for my general internet usage that blocked all ads, political posts, campaigns, etc.. The only news I got was from what I percieved as credible news sources and only on topics that I cared about, guess what, I never cared about Hillary's e-mails, so I managed to miss the whole scandal. It's amazing how having adequate skills at blocking garbage allowed me to live in a cave during campaigning. In many ways I'm glad I only heard what happened after the fact from Hillary herself. And thank you Hillary for running, for "coming back out of the woods", and for helping to lead the way through this mess. We continue to need strong leaders like Hillary. I hope this inspires many people. I know it has inspired me.

I don't really love it..........

I was filling in the rating on the book, I really don't love it,I don't love what happened and I don't love the story. But I appreciate the author actually telling the story in her voice, explaining what happened in such detail and confirming many things that I was aware of and making me all the wiser. I am embarrassed as a citizen that we have a president who is trying to lead our country and can't ! Thank you Hillary for explaining to us what happened!

What Happened?

I started reading the book but decided to listen on Audible for the remaining half. Enjoyed hearing Clinton’s words from her. Despite what some have said this isn’t a novel about it being “everyone else’s fault but her own.” Sec. Clinton takes a lot of the blame and shoulders much of the responsibility of how the campaign was laid out. She discusses how she campaigned and who her team members were. I like her voice in this novel because she isn’t holding back, afraid of making people angry. She tells it like she saw it. Sec. Clinton did discuss funny things like breakfast because as she states people would ask her those types of questions all the time. She wrote of her concerns about the present administration, Russia and Comey’s influence. When I listened to this and knowing what’s happening currently it served to make me more concerned with our present government. She ends the book with how to get involved and how to stay the course. Overall, great read/listen.

Thank you for sharing your story

Often hard to listen to or read a long book. However, the information is so important! It is helpful to understand what happened. Like studying a history lesson, the only way not to repeat history is to understand it, and make different choices. I applaud her candor. Thank you for sharing your story.

Great Listen

This book is really intriguing. Though I often found myself questioning Rodham Clinton's analyses and lessons from the 2016 election, she offers a fascinating accounting of events that is equal parts enlightening and infuriating. Ultimately, I walked away from this book better informed about her, the elections, and these challenging times in which we live. For that, I'm thankful to her for writing this book.

Self-help memoir

This book is brutal. I was expecting explanations of how she should have ran a better campaign or how it could have been done better. Nope. Its endless talking about how she was coping with the loss of the election, how her and Bill watched CSI and some other TV shows, with some clever favorite character commentaries.

Then explains what was said to people we saw her talk to during the inauguration, how she ended up taking a photo with trump, etc... It's dullsville,

"Capitalizing on My Failure"

After long unbearable hours of listening to Hillary Clinton talk about what she believed happened before, during, and after the election, I have finally finished the book. I give this book 1 out of 5 stars for several reasons.

First, Hillary claims to not have had a whiff of entitlement during the campaign, but from what I observed, that is pretty far from the truth.

Second, while she says that she takes responsibility for her loss, she spends the entire book blaming everyone from Russians to Comey to Sanders to even Obama, not to mention Republicans in general.

Third, she adds a lot of irrelevant information about her life that had nothing to do with "What Happened," which made the book seem so much longer and aided in identifying her narcissism.

Fourth, she repeatedly mentions that the majority of Americans supported her, but that isnt true. There are over 200 million voting age Americans. There are over 153 million registered voters in America. And she only got a little over 60 million to vote for her. Of the people that did vote, she didnt even break 50% of those.

Fifth, she completely disregards 3rd party candidates except for when they nice things about her. She completely manipulates their words to make her look good. And she thinks that 3rd party voters, had they not voted for Trump, would have voted for her, which is far from the truth.

Hillary Clinton had the opportunity to redeem herself, admit her faults in a convincing way, and accept some actual responsibility. She didn't, and that makes all the more satisfied in not having voted for her.

Expected more than just a blame game

What disappointed you about What Happened?

It was disappointing to hear someone blame the entire world for everything in her life. There was blame placed on Trump, Bernie Sanders, Republicans, the media (definitely living in denial on that one), NYT, Comey, Russia, vast right wing conspiracies, misogyny, email "conspiracy", Fox News, Roger Ailes, and on and on it goes.

I was eventually expecting to hear she could walk on water, or had parted the Red Sea. There was a strong sense of paranoia in her words. There seemed to be no true introspection.

It did not ring true when she attempted to paint herself as a normal person then states she and Bill Clinton havent had to go to a store for a milk and bread run in DECADES! How can she even pretend she knows what life is like for the common man when she has lived her adult life surrounded by secret service and her life has only existed in a privileged protective bubble for decades?

The scandals that have surrounded the Clintons were addressed and, as expected, others were always to blame and none of them had a grain of truth to them, according to her. That's a hard pill to swallow considering that there exists some indisputable facts. If memory serves me right, there is no disputing Bill Clinton's affair with a WH intern or that they paid out money in at least one other sex scandal.

Having listened to the book "Shattered", I'd hoped there would be some honest reflection in this book on the mistakes made in her campaign. It was only mentioned as a way to cast blame on others.


Would you ever listen to anything by Hillary Rodham Clinton again?

Probably not

Which character – as performed by Hillary Rodham Clinton – was your favorite?

Author narrated her own book and I thought it was well done.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I did believe the parts when she talked about her relationships with her daughter and her mother. To me, it was a part of the book that had an honest ring of truth to it and seemed very sincere.

Any additional comments?

I'm glad I listened to this book but really wished it contained some introspection that could be believable and wasn't so full of blame and finger pointing.

Lots of anger. Lots of hope.

Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

It’s a darn long read. Or in my case, with the audiobook, a darn long listen – 16hrs 50 min in total. That’s long.

I admit, I didn’t enjoy most of the book tremendously. It dragged on, it was filled with anger, and if you thought you heard the word “emails” all too often before election – this book might just push you over the edge. I do think that she might look back at this book in a few years wondering if she should have had it reviewed just one more time very carefully before publishing.

I was ready to give this book a less than fortunate rating – all too many repetitions, too much anger, too much finger pointing.

But here is the thing. She deserves to be listened to, she gets to point fingers, she makes a good case for what happened. And she doesn’t ignore her responsibility in it all. She is the first to own the loss and identify every wrong turn she took. That deserves credit.

Could the book have been shorter? Definitely! But you know what? She has always been accused of not sharing enough about her true self, she was always criticized was not letting people look behind closed doors – here you have it all. And guess what – now people are complaining that she shares too much! There is just no way she can do it right. So, I listen to the TV shows, books, newspapers she enjoyed since November 2016. I endure hearing – what appears every single person’s name and role in her campaign. I stay with her when she quotes letters and conversations in what sometimes appears a seemingly endless fashion. We always asked for that – for her to let us in. Now, we should listen.

You might not agree with everything she writes and concludes – that’s fair. I know, I don’t. But she explains what happened very well – though you wouldn’t think so over the first few hours. But it all comes together. Her own mistakes, James Comey, Russian cyber attacks, and more. She summarizes it well when she says – towards the end of the book – that pointing out all the elements that led to her loss doesn’t mean she doesn’t take responsibility, it means that in addition to her mistakes there were other elements that cannot be ignored and require investigation. She is right about that.

One part of the book I recommend strongly to cross-read with other literature, is the one about Russia. She feels very strongly about Putin. And while I admit that she certainly knows the politician better than I do, I often wonder if she might have locked herself in a corner with her stance. I can’t say for sure, but I do recommend reading Gabriele Krone-Schmalz to get an experts opinion with a different stance – just to balance out the bias. I am not actually sure if Krone-Schmalz’ books have been translated into English, but if you speak German you are in luck.

In any case – if you lasted until the very last chapter of What Happened?, it shall have been worth it. “Resilience” – the last chapter. It is wonderful. If the entire book was written in that tone, it would be beautiful. But alas “Resilience” focuses on the future. The other chapters analyzed the past. And while the past had lovely and wonderful passages (about her marriage, about her best friend and partner Bill, about Chelsea, about friends, etc.), she was angry. She was angry about what happened. And you can tell. But “Resilience” is hopeful, it’s positive, optimistic, it’s filled with love and kindness.

To fully appreciate this chapter however, I fear, it makes sense to read the entire book.

Her book taught me a lot. About her, about her politics, about America. I appreciate it all (well, almost all). “Resilience”, though, is the chapter that touched me deeply. And it is the chapter that put her anger into perspective and leads me to give her one star more than I had intended.

I recommend this book to anyone that finally wants to see the real Mrs. Clinton. You can’t make that stuff up.

Mehr als eine Rechtfertigung

Die Dokumentation ihrer Wahlkampagne und was währenddessen passierte, könnte auch als Rechtfertigung ihrer Fehler interpretiert werden, wären da nicht die vielen exakten Zitate und die Wahrheiten über Manipulation und Machenschaften, die längst von offiziellen Stellen bestätigt wurden. Ich bedanke mich bei Hilary Clinton für dieses außerordentliche Buch. Ein Beispiel dafür, was nicht nur in Amerika passiert, um korrupte Politiker zur Macht zu verhelfen. Wir können nicht vorsichtig genug sein, uns nicht von Internet news täuschen zu lassen. Fast unmöglich!

Buch ohne Tiefgang

Das Warten auf dieses Buch hat sich definitiv nicht gelohnt. Ich habe den Wahlkampf von HRC aufmerksam verfolgt und von diesem Buch noch mehr Hintergrundinformationen erwartet. Fehlanzeige, das Buch gleicht mehr einem mittelmässigen Reisebericht ohne Tiefgang.
