2016 U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said that she will be “letting [her] guard down” in a memoir titled “What Happened” that’s due out in September.
The book will reveal her thoughts and opinions on her presidential campaign and loss to Donald Trump.
She has said that it is the most personal book she has written, and will give readers an insight on what it is really like to run for president, “especially if you’re a woman.”
“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,” she writes in the book’s introduction.
The book is ultimately about resilience, she said. About how to get back up after a loss.
According to Guardian, Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, has said that Hillary Clinton’s book is about the campaign and its aftermath, about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye.
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 analysing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces were 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.
