Description

"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.

A Source of Strength!

Heartwarming and definitely inspiring. Hillary is truly a champion not only of America but also the youth finding their ways in every lost.

Even if you were not a Hillary Clinton fan, this book provides unique insight into the 2016 election. Would read again and again.

quite enjoyable

Hillary is intelligent, caring and pretty down to earth in this book. No matter your parting sentiments on the election, it is interesting and enlighting to experience things from her point of view. Well written and well narrated, but I hope I never have to hear "quote/unquote" again, BC holy crap, that probably added 20 minutes of run time. :/ Aside from that, the book was enjoyable, and Hillary does her best to inspire. Definitely recommend.

Theirs always to side to a story!

It's nice to hear Hillary's side of this election, what goes into a campaign, how much work it takes and the emotional effects it has on people. You don't have to agree with her political views to listen to this book, as it goes over much more than just her position on policy, As a Canadian, I took great interest in the USA 2016 election as whoever became president would also affect my government!
Hillary was defeated, she took time to mend her wounds, then she stood up and faced the world!

So inspirational

Hillary Clinton tells it like it is. In this book, we hear a side of her that was not made so public but is now free to say exactly how she feels. She is articulate and well-spoken throughout. While she is very clear about her thoughts and feelings on her experiences in the 2016 presidential election, she retains her class and dignity.

A story to be understood! Well done!

This book took me into a world I didn’t quite understand or perhaps appreciate. Secretary Clinton does a great job of explaining and recounting what happened like only she can. I listened to the audio version in my car on my drives to and from work. Found myself escaping into Hillary’s world and it was like Hillary was riding in the car with me and telling me what happened. Thoroughly enjoyed. Recommending for anyone who cares knowing what happened.

insightful, inspiring, heartbreakingly honest, the book goes beyond what you expect the hear and dives into what led up to her run.

sounded like an encyclopedia

sounded terrible

most of it sounded like she was reading an encyclopedia. its hard to believe this was a book about her recent history. there were moments she was passionate, and i wish she was able to maintain that energy throughout more of the book. while i was familiar with most of the campaign, there were things that I learned.

Revealing and a bit surprising.

This book was not what I was expecting. Hillary opened herself up to the reader in ways that I wished she had on the campaign trail. I saw a vulnerable side to Hillary that the public doesn't usually get t o see. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and no I don't agree that Hillary should "just go away or shut up".

Thank you Hillary for writing this book.

What Happened After What Happened

I’ve just finished listening to What Happened, as read by Hillary Clinton herself, and I am in tears. Yes, I was an #ImWithHer. And I’m a #StillWithHer, but not for the reasons you might think. Not for the because-I-have-a-vagina reason many of Hillary’s detractors, including Susan Sarandon, try to claim as the only reason any thinking person would be with her. But because I am her. And I have been a fan of Hillary’s since she was First Lady. Ever since she handled herself with a level of class I don’t think many of us would have been capable of. So, sure, I was an easy audience.

But, still, I had questions. I am a married woman and a mother myself. My daughters are 30 and 28, with no grandchildren on the horizon, and I’m okay with that.

I am also mothering two fourteen-year-old boys, one of whom is our nephew. And I know that a country in which a woman was so vehemently attacked for trying to break that highest glass ceiling is a world I don’t want them to perpetuate.

What Happened is the account of the misogyny and sexism and the win-at-any-cost mentality that ruled the GOP’s every moment of the 2016 election and what we’ve seen during Trump’s presidency. That’s why we marched on January 21st of 2017. Not because of our sour grapes, but because we bore witness. And everything Hillary writes in this book is the truth, and she wrote it before the Harvey Weinsteins and the Charlie Roses and the Matt Lauers of the world were outed. In fact, what we bore witness to is the reason they were outed.

What Happened is perhaps the single greatest representation of the state of women at this point in our history. And it’s at once devastating and inspiring. If Hillary can keep going, despite everything they threw and continue to throw at her, then so can we. If you are a woman, if you are responsible for teaching and mentoring women, if you love a woman—a mother, a sister, a wife, a daughter, or a friend—then you should absolutely read What Happened. And you should especially read it if you are 1) Bernie Sanders, 2) any of the aforementioned news and media moguls, or 3) a politician who hopes to get thinking women’s votes ever again. And in case you didn’t know, women are 51% of the population. And we’re the ones who vote in the greatest numbers. Good luck.

Authenticity

It was really great hearing this in her voice.

It's the times when she laughs or you can tell, from a brief pause, that she is shaking her head in disbelief that really hit home.

if you feel animosity or neutral to Hillary Clinton I would encourage you to give this a listen.

I wish everyone would give this a listen.

I know it’s told from her side and perspective but I feel like it could really help people see what really went on during the disaster that was our election. So inspired, so fired up, and so grateful for all she has done and the grace with which she manages to get through it all.

Dissapointed supporter

Lifelong democrat and voted for Hillary.

She wants to be the most powerful person in the world yet cries sexism, misogamy, racism when others fight for it and she doesn't get it.

Just can't take chapter after chapter of complaints, excuses, and I don't buy her victimhood.

Heartfelt and raw

Excellent. Thought several times that reliving some of these memories felt “too soon,” as my heart felt like it was rebreaking several times throughout. To those that claim Hillary is too bitter in this book, there were touches of her pain in the first half, no doubt. But the second half presents a lot of hope and optimism that’s anything but bitter. I highly recommend.

"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.

Not very honest

Hillary spends a long portion of this book attempting to make herself relatable, with folksy wisdom and pop culture references. Her email defense is 'everyone else was doing it' (no one else had their own server) and conveniently omits any discussion of the DNC or conflicts of interest with her foundation among other things. She makes insinuations and a few allegations, but ultimately she believes that she has all of the answers for our country's woes and that she wasn't given a chance to enact them. I see this book as her attempt to control the narrative and to make money. I ranked this low because I don't believe that there was much truth in the book and that much was omitted.

WOW - What's her reality?

What would have made What Happened better?

I think the truth, I believe that HRC truly believes what she wrote however you can't blame everything on FOXNews, Sen. McConnell, Jim Comey, The Founding Fathers (Writers of the Constitution), Sen Sanders, the Republican Party (writ large) and not come back to a fundamental truth. HRC was a miserable candidate and her book further underlined that basic fact.

She may very well have been the most studied and well read candidate in modern history however the plans she espoused were another chapter of a playbook that is currently driving this country into bankruptcy. It is good and right to be generous however it is lost on her that a large portion of society that she is nobly trying to help have no skin in the game and as such just take and continue to expect more. That is the fallacy of her candidacy sometimes hard work and excellence is driven by being told no and pushing yourself harder to get to yes. I am convinced she does that but the constituency she wishes to serve does not; here in lies the problem. HRC is not a bad person she just has some bad ideas that have been tried and failed.

It is also clear that she is a narcissist of the first order and when it all falls apart then she wants nothing to do with the outcome. I do not believe her hypothesis that we are not ready as country for a female president. I do believe that we as a country are not ready for HRC as president and 33 states comprising of 306 EC votes agreed.

Contrary to her comment the electoral college is essential to ensure citizens (yes citizens) of less populated states still have influence over national electoral events otherwise CA, FL, TX, MA. NY and IL would elect every president and thereby that elected official would be beholden to those narrow constituencies. Popular vote only matter Madame Secretary in the state by state contests since we are confederation of the states and the states vote to elect the President of the US as designed by the Constitution that you profess to want to support and defend as the "worlds oldest and most successful democracy". Please as a student of history make sure to remember that history is written by all involved not by just those democrats that you agree with.

This is a must read as to why although the Trump victory was one which I hated was the necessary outcome of the 2016 race.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not certain - probably another political science book on the 2016 election

Did Hillary Rodham Clinton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

HRC should have left the narration to a professional at times she sounded like a pedantic professor allowing herself to teach a freshman collegiate English class and at other times like my grandmother at story time.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was angry that HRC did not get why she was not elected, that she did not ultimately understand the system that repudiated her. Sadness at her patronizing tone and disappointed that she professes to support our constitutional democracy but does not want to abide by it when it does go her way.

Any additional comments?

I think this is a must read. For those that are die hard Trump people; other that wanted to feel the Bern and most like myself who prayed that someone, anyone other than Trump would stand up against Hillary.

Sadly for Hillary if another conventional candidate had run against her (Kasich, Rubio, et al) I think her defeat would have been complete and that her drubbing would have shown up in the popular vote as well; however Trump being Trump he tried actively to shoot himself in the foot multiple times and still managed to get elected because she was such a miserable candidate.
