This is a thread to list and add all of the books that Clinton discusses, lists and states that he has read in the current Presidential read: My Life.

We will try to list them by chapter if possible.

Great start Bryan, I found an article where he shared at the time what he was reading then. What a reader.

Alisa (MsTaz) What a great idea to set up this thread! He truly was and is a voracious reader and having what he mentions in this book alone in one place is a wonderful idea. It's almost worth considering moving this and starting it as a subfolder under his presidential thread after this book discussion is concluded, just because it would be such a terrific reference. But I am getting ahead of myself perhaps. Thanks for adding these Bryan, very interesting.

Bryan Craig Give a hand to Bentley, who came up with the idea of a separate thread, a very good one, indeed.

If I missed anything or anyone sees something about Clinton as a reader, feel free to post.

Interesting that he "read and still noted" McDougal's book. That entry seemed a bit self serving but I guess it is his book.

The Woman Who Wouldn't Talk Why I Refused to Testify Against the Clintons & What I Learned in Jail by Susan McDougal by Susan McDougal


Bryan Craig He definitely was affected by Susan McDougal so I guess it makes sense he would read it.
