Book Review: Hillary Rodham Clinton: Do All the Good You Can


An inspiring and meticulously researched middle grade biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton—First Lady, senator, secretary of state, and Democratic candidate for president in 2016.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is a true leader. Growing up in Park Ridge, Illinois, Hillary was inspired by the philosophy of John Wesley, who urged his followers to “do all the good you can.” Rising to prominence in 1992 as the First Lady of the United States, Hillary captured the world’s attention with her bold ideas and political forcefulness.

From her time at Wellesley to her life at the White House and beyond, Hillary has been at the forefront of huge change—and despite setbacks and political scandals, she has worked for good in the world.

Acclaimed author Cynthia Levinson creates a compelling and personal portrait of Hillary’s historic journey from her childhood to her service as secretary of state and beyond. Includes a timeline of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s life and an eight-page photo insert.

My Review: Hillary Clinton said , you will always find her on the front lines of democracy, fighting for the future. In this book about “Do all the good you can by” by Cynthia Levinson, I discovered something new about Hillary Clinton during her high school and college days. Standing up to bullies since she was 4 years old, joining the anti-communists club in school, convincing the school to hold a mock presidential debate and many more.

Among other things she has done growing up, when Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia ran for president, he asked Hillary to help run his campaign in Indiana. She learned practical election skills, like how to budget and get voters to the poll. She spoke about Health Care reform in 1994, spoke at the Fourth United Nations World Conference on Women in Beijing, China in 1995. Sworn in as Senator for New York in 2001. Ran for Democratic president in 2008, and made the US secretary of state.

This is a book everyone would love reading even young teens. After reading you might want to vote for her. Pick up a copy today from

  1. HRC is a fine example of a hard-working compassionate person – characteristics that we need to instill in our younger generation.

  2. I didn’t know about this book. Would be a great read for the younger generation. I’ve read about a lot of programs she was involved in through the years and in my opinion, she’s got what it takes.
