"For the most part, this is not the former first lady and presidential hopeful we all know. In a softer, almost neighborly voice, Clinton reveals intimate details about her childhood and the childhood of her husband.
She laughs as she relates her father's favorite question to her: "How are you going to dig your way out of this, Hillary?" But she saddens when talking about Bill's life with an abusive, alcoholic stepfather.
All of this leads into her main subject--how we can raise a new generation of strong, purposeful young adults. This is a sensible guide for all parents." amazon

Admit it, many of us picked up a copy of this book in an airport and read it in flight. Who could resist?? While it only alluded to "hard times" between the then President and first lady (which is what I was most interested in when I bought it!), it is a lovely vision and statement of how society and community can and should be there for one another. Regardless of the role you think government should play in defining the village, I read this before having children and, since, have learned how much it does take a village to nurture and raise children, adults and citizens. Worth a read.
