When Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, Americans across the country were shocked and left wondering how someone with no experience won over a studied former U.S. secretary of state. In her new book titled, What Happened, out today (September 12th), Clinton seeks to answer that very question.
“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,” Clinton writes in the introduction.
Publisher, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press that Clinton’s book is highly personal and it’s a “cautionary tale” about Russian interference in last year’s election and its threat to democracy.
Simon & Schuster adds, “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. 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 afterwards.”
