“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.

  • Fiction?

    From Werboweski
    How is this in the non-fiction section? Until Hillary learns how to take responsibility for being the worst candidate in US history this book shall forever remain fictional.
  • What happened?

    From Happy bird711
    You lost! MAGA!
  • Personal and Enlightening. Worth the read!

    From Plars5180
    Throughout this book you get a lot of the personal feelings and thoughts of Hilary, reading it feels like having a conversation with a friend. Yet at the same time Hilary does a good job of highlighting the main aspects of the political turmoil we have seen in the last election- and everyday since. This book is not written for Trump-supporters. It is written for those who were on the fence or somewhere in the middle between a confusing dichotomy of critics and rhetoric during the campaign. For those who wish they could have done more: read this. Recognize the inherent flaws and bias that come with the authorship, and make your own decisions about what really happened- ones that are based on logic and reason. The sudden campaign of trolls who reviewed the book with a single star as soon as it came out is reason enough. We cannot let immature, emotional, and vindictive people like them have their way. It's worth the read simply to counteract their self-perceived power. But all in all, Hilary has written a good book that proves she is NOT gone from politics- she still has a lot of strength and the tenacity to stand up against Trump and will do so again. She has clearly worked hard to write this book and prove exactly that.

    From The4gottendeath
    What a waste of money.
  • Best book about the 2016 election so far.

    From Steve Steve Steve Steve
    Ignore the naysayers; it's an insightful and entertaining read. People who are predisposed to dislike Clinton will probably not like it, but approach with an open mind and there's not a lot to complain about.
  • To HIllary

    From Sumwalt
    I wait every day for September 12 hopefully in these pages I will be able to mend my broken heart. I live in the frozen north but I still watch the election of your great nation. My heart breaks to see the birthplace of my grandmother go through what seems to me unbelievable chaos in the last seven months.
