Secretary Hillary Clinton

"Stronger Together" written with Tim Kaine

"Stronger Together" brings together the personal stories, speeches, fact sheets, and policy proposals behind Secretary Clinton's historic campaign, from the announcement of her candidacy in April 2015 up to her nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.


"Hard Choices"

Clinton offers candid reflections about the key moments during her time as Secretary of State, as well as her thoughts about how to navigate the challenges of the 21st century.


"Living History"

 Clinton writes about her upbringing in suburban, middle-class America in the 1950s and her transformation from Goldwater Girl to student activist to controversial First Lady.


"It Takes a Village"

As First Lady, Clinton made children her passion and her cause. Her experience with children strengthened her conviction that a child's development is inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well that society supports families and individuals. In other words, it takes a village to raise a child. This book chronicles her quest to discover how we can make our society into the kind of village that allows children to grow into able, caring, resilient adults.


Donald Trump

 Trump outlines how a crippled America could be restored to greatness.

Trump reveals how he renegotiated millions of dollars in bank loans and survived the recession, paving the way for a resurgence, during which he built the most successful casino operation in Atlantic City, broke ground on one of the biggest and most lucrative development projects ever undertaken in New York City, and outsmarted one of South America's richest men for rights to the Miss Universe pageant.
