The choices in the 2016 Election Year have never been clearer. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine have outlined a very extensive agenda that will help make a 'Great America' even more accessible to all citizens. Getting these programs into law may be a bigger problem with the Congress mired in gridlock and obstructionism. It would be great if the new Congress learned to compromise and show some political courage. ...more
Really inspiring and hopeful. So nice to get a more detailed look at how she wants to govern & her outlook on the world and the future. It's easy to see that the future POTUS & VP, have taken their life experience from childhood to formulate their perspective on their careers of service. I look forward to seeing how they will forge forward & hope they will rise to the task of the office which they seek as they will be held accountable. So refreshing t ...more
Interesting how this book has a 3.5 star average in GoodReads and only a 1.5 in Amazon. Might it be because thousands of haters have taken to Amazon to write fake reviews while those people don't tend to hang out in GoodReads? ...more
“Stronger Together” is an average collection of talking points that outlines Clinton and Kaine’s campaign plans. Former Secretary of State, Senator, First Lady and attorney Hillary Clinton and former mayor, governor and senator Time Kaine provide the public with an easy to access book on their agenda for the country. This straightforward 288-page book is broken out into four sections: 1. Growing Together, 2. Safer Together, 3. Standing Tog ...more
Now, as such, I will admit the book is a bit dry. Some statements are repetitive, as they apply to different issues, and at times it can feel a bit like reading a dic ...more
While many of Clinton's plans and ideas for effective progress are in fact good, they should also have been adapted in her book, What Happened, instead of making excuses why she lost for some four hundred pages.
My biggest complaint besides the fact that Tim Kaine probably had nothing to do with this ...more
So many of the reviews here seem to be from people who have opposing political views and haven't actually read the book. It's well written, thoughtful, and contains actual plans to help American families and workers. Great ideas and the means to get them done. This vision of America is what I want for my kids. ...more
This quick book, couched in rally-speak, offers a vision, the first full explanations of fifty detailed policy ideas. There’s something here for everyone. Stronger Together, as a manifesto, divides into three main sections: Growing Together on the economy, Safer Together on world security, and Standing Together about domestic policy.
Growing Together, about the economy, occupies the first half of the book.
Every dollar of i ...more
Simply put the book is awful. The organization is so bad.
To begin with the table of contents is the longest section in the book. It has about 20 topics hyper-linked on each of the six pages it takes up. There are only four section in the book so looking at one page there is no numbering, three sub topics with about 5 subsubtopics under that...
Wow okay, begin the books content. An unlabeled preface is jammed in after the table of contents. Th ...more
Reading this now after the election went so horribly wrong, while watching travesty after mortifying travesty disgorged in a grotesque parade from the circus tent formerly known as the White House each day, was almost like reading a Greek tragedy - like reading Cassandra's diary five minutes after the Trojans ...more
This books clearly gives information in specific areas of how Hillary Clinton would address economic, racial and foreign policies. If you are truly interested, please read and share this book. I believe most of the negative comments were written by the typical internet troll. ...more
What do you do when you agree with the policy of a political book, but find the book itself to be less than gripping? That's the problem this reader faced with Stronger Together, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2016 campaign book. And, to be honest, it's one of a handful of books I discarded without finishing this year.
I don't typically rate DNFs, unless I've agreed to review the book, or it's just that bad. Stronger Together is an exception to that rule. I didn't put do...more
I decided to go ahead and get an audio book of "Stronger Together" to listen on my way to work, and so happy I did it. Nice overview about the US economy, political clime and the burning issues facing our country.
Some of the most discussed subjects in the book are:
- trickle down economics
- climate change
- clean energy
- equal pay inc ...more
