“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.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. 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. This is her most personal memoir yet.

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 afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. 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 analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are 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.


  • If you read it, you'll enjoy it

    By Math Idiot
    I had a long trip ahead and needed something to read. I had not been following the book, but it came out just when I was browsing for something to eat up time. I am surprised how enjoyable, insightful and personable it is. I seriously doubt many of the 1 star reviews are from folks who bought/read this book. They just don't like the lady and want to be mean.
  • God awful.

    By DrewReed!!
    This was the absolute worst book I have ever read. Poor writing skills. Poor content. Poor pity me I lost and it's everyone else's fault. That's all she talked about. Extremely BORING!! All I could think while reading was blah blah blah. I couldn't even finish reading the book. It was so bad, I will turn it in to firewood.
  • Written with Clarity and Heart

    By machinedude
    Hillary is very clear and honest in this book. It goes without saying that the subject matter is very interesting. Very well-written, no filler, no fat.
  • Still with her

    By volodoscope
    Amazing collection of behind the scenes stories, very personal and human way of talking to the people who believed in her. I still so to this day.

  • Hillary Clinton Lost and is in Denial

    By Kingsley lurer
    The title of this comment the summary of this book. The book itself is poorly written, it is a compilation of the most uninteresting, politically correct cliches. It isn't original, genuine, or philosophically relevant. Most of the content discussed has been said before. There is blatantly poor use of philosophy as well. I can only imagine the people who praise this book as dim witted conformists. As for the politics, the book chooses to adhere to ignorance and ignore a lot of the reasons why people did not support Hillary Clinton; which includes her role and advocation for war in the Middle East including Iraq and Libya, her continued support to fight in the Middle East again in Syria and Iran, her advocation to remove amendment rights such as privacy and bearing arms, and of course her husband who ironically is the real sexual predator--in contrast to trump.
  • Great book and insight...what could have been

    By Lovefrance
    First the people that are criticizing this book have not read it. Really? Someone with your attitude giving Hilary money, you truly expect us to believe that? Hillary takes full responsibility for losing, more than she deserves. Who could have expected the Russians to have so much of an influence and people to not sift out up the truth ? The book also provides insightful and provocative thoughts about going forward. Great book. Loved it
