Back to Work by Bill Clinton.. No slouch is the guy who owns the catch-phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” who provides in this book his recipe for the future. A bold embrace of smart governance (Obama?!) is among his aces-in-the-hole.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Bill Clinton’s new book, “Back to Work,” is really several books in one slender volume. It’s a lucid one-man rebuttal of the Tea Party’s anti-government agenda. A series of shrewd talking points for Democrats trying to hold on to the White House and battling for control of Congress in the midst of a sour economy and growing voter discontent. A self-serving reminder of the prosperity the country enjoyed during Mr. Clinton’s tenure in the White House, meant to burnish his legacy. And a practical set of proposals — some borrowed and some new, some innovative and some highly sketchy — for restoring economic growth and creating jobs."

The New York Times

"The Democratic Party has been criticized — by supporters as well as critics — for not having the fortitude lately to stand up for its ideas, policies, even its president. That may change with the release of Bill Clinton's "Back to Work," a book with the chutzpah that the Democrats have been missing."

The Los Angeles Times
