An instant #1 New York Times and Amazon Bestseller, What Happened explores what Hillary Clinton was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. As Clinton writes in the book's introduction,“In the past... 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.” Since What Happened's release, Clinton has been in-demand for her candid, thoughtful analysis and truly one-of-a-kind perspective, delivering fascinating, informative and crucial interviews on The Rachel Maddow Show, CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley, The Late Show with Stephen ColbertAnderson Cooper 360NPR, Pod Save America, and more. 
“What Happened is not one book, but many. It is a candid and blackly funny account of her mood in the direct aftermath of losing to Donald J. Trump. It is a post-mortem, in which she is both coroner and corpse. It is a feminist manifesto. It is a score-settling jubilee…. It is worth reading.”
“An engaging, beautifully synthesized page-turner...”
“Here is Clinton at her most emotionally raw.... While What Happened records the perspective of a pioneer who beat an unprecedented path that stopped just shy of the White House, it also covers territory that many women will recognize...."

“What Happened is a raw and bracing book, a guide to our political arena.”

Balancing both sobering reality with inspiring optimism, and groundbreaking information on what humankind can do now, An Inconvenient Sequel is a comprehensive how-to guide that empowers people to make a difference. Having just made headlines for his powerful remarks at the United Nations Private Sector Forum and Milken Institute Summit, Gore is in-demand for his ingenious presentations, no-holds-barred analysis, and thought leadership on the most important issues of our time.  
"[Gore] has become a star orator...[he] has a gift, here as in Inconvenient 1, for making statistics enthrall. Screens behind him explode with graphics as he strides the lecture stages." 

"In a summer movie landscape with Spider-Man, a simian army waging further battle for the planet and Charlize Theron as a sexy Cold War-era superspy, it says something that one of the most compelling characters is  Al Gore..."
"Mr. Gore remains a prodigy of hope, with energy that seems endlessly renewable."
"I had a geology professor in college, who, whenever he drew a volcano on the blackboard, also drew a village nearby that was going to be buried in lava when it erupted. Always got a laugh ... and also made a point. Al Gore is like that prof — and  An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a hugely effective lecture."

“The definitive biography for the foreseeable future.”
– Publishers Weekly
“[A] beautifully written portrait….Chernow doesn’t gloss over Grant’s struggle with alcoholism or his tendency to trust shady operators.  However, his willingness to protect the gains of freemen and to fight the KKK was an example of the moral courage he consistently displayed.  This is a superb tribute to Grant, whose greatness is earning increased appreciation.”

Renowned foreign affairs expert Elliott Abrams' critically acclaimed new book draws on four decades of experience as an American official and authority on the Middle East, taking us inside his work with leaders like Scoop Jackson, Pat Moynihan, George Shultz and Ronald Regan, to reveal a personal story of the development of U.S. human rights policy. Frequently sought-out for his shrewd analysis on the Middle East, Abrams is already set to deliver remarks on the book at Georgetown University’s Andrew H. Siegel Memorial LectureThe Alexander Hamilton Society, and Freedom House
"Elliott Abrams has done the country another important service. This outstanding book reminds us that the enduring power of America is that, at our best, we see our interests as our values, and our values as our interests. Now more than ever, Americans and their leaders need to understand that support for human rights has been, and should remain, a key pillar of US foreign policy. This book could not be more timely or more significant."
—Senator John McCain
"Since the 1980s, no US official has done more to advance the cause of democracy and human rights than Elliott Abrams. Here bringing his vast experience to bear on American policy in the Middle East, he makes a powerful, pragmatic case for promoting democratic reform in Egypt and other Arab autocracies. Sure to be controversial in the best sense - his arguments cannot be ignored."
—Robert Kagan, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institute, author of The World America Made
