Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will publish The Book of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories of Courage and Resilience on 1st October 2019, with Simon & Schuster.


“Celebrating the women who have inspired them throughout their lives, The Book of Gutsy Women will feature portraits of more than 100 women, celebrating the histories that all too often get overlooked or are left unwritten,” the synopsis reads. “The women featured in the book range from Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate activist whose Asperger’s syndrome has shaped her advocacy, to Sor Juan Inés de la Cruz, a 17th-century nun and poet whose outspoken views on women’s role in society scandalized audiences.”

The speculation about what happened on Nov. 8, 2016 and the months preceding that day have reached a fever pitch in recent months. Book after book has hit the market, each with its own theory about why Hillary Clinton lost and why Donald Trump won. Next month, Clinton will get a chance to tell her truth in her highly-anticipated post-election memoir, What Happened. For the first time, Clinton will allow readers a behind-the-scenes look at what it was actually like to be the first woman nominated for president by a major party, and how she weathered an election rocked by sexism and spectacle. Bustle is excited to reveal an exclusive excerpt from Clinton’s memoir, available Sept. 12, 2017 from Simon & Schuster.

Much gossip has circulated over the past several weeks about what Hillary Clinton will do next. Mayor of New York City? TV talk show host? All of that is idle speculation. Here is something definitive that should gladden the hearts of her loyal supporters.

AP NewsBreak: Clinton will reflect on 2016 race in new book

NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Clinton has a lot of plans for 2017, including some reflections on her stunning loss last fall to Donald Trump.

The former secretary of state, senator and first lady is working on a book of personal essays that will come out this fall, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book, still untitled, is structured around hundreds of favorite quotations that have inspired her. The publisher said Clinton will use the quotes to “tell stories from her life, up to and including her experiences in the 2016 presidential campaign” and into her thoughts on the future.

This welcome news implies that we must, for awhile, abide with Hillary retreating to her attic to compose.  We can weather that knowing that a book tour will assuredly be in the offing. Her re-signing with the Harry Walker Agency and other scheduled upcoming speeches are good news indeed!

Hillary has penned a revised epilogue for the paperback edition of Hard Choices.  Here is an excerpt.


Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. Rather than make me want to slow down, it has spurred me to speed up. As Margaret Mead said, children keep our imaginations fresh and our hearts young, and they drive us to work for a better future. I’ve also returned again and again to this question of universality – how much we all have in common even if the circumstances of our lives may be different. As you’ve seen throughout this book, one of the defining themes of my time as Secretary of State was our increasing global interdependence. Despite all the division and discord in the world, which sometimes can seem overwhelming, the basic fact of the 21st century is that we’re more connected than ever. If the United States continues to lead the world in the years ahead, as I believe it can and must, it will be because we have learned how to define the terms of our interdependence to promote more cooperation and shared prosperity and less conflict and inequality. As we’ve seen since the first edition of this book was published in June 2014, the negative side of interdependence remains potent — whether it was the spread of virulent new strands of extremism in the Middle East or old-style nationalism in Europe or a deadly epidemic in Africa. Our job is to build up the positive side. The United States and the other great democracies have to redouble our efforts to empower moderates and marginalize extremists everywhere, and to stand firmly and united in pursuit of a more just, free, and peaceful world. That’s the world I want for Charlotte and for all our kids.

Among all the gifts and cards that arrived not long after Charlotte did was a package from a woman who had watched her 83-year old mother stitch together beautiful quilts for many years and wanted to give it a shot. “This is my first and only attempt to sew a memory quilt for anyone,” she explained. Inside I found a red, white, and black patchwork that included panels with inspiring inscriptions and famous photos of Chelsea through the years. I held it up to the light and had to smile at the familiar images. A “memory quilt” was a good name for it. It was hard to believe that the baby girl I was holding in one photo could be the same poised and lovely woman being married in another. Yet there she was. I wondered for a moment what a quilt of my own life would look like. There were so many people who had taught me so much. And now I had one more. In just a few months, Charlotte had already helped me see the world in new ways. There was so much more to do. So many more panels waiting to be filled in. I folded up the quilt and got back to work.

Here is the email.  When you click on the link you must sign in either with your email account or through Facebook or Twitter.  You must do this even if you have signed up for excerpts before, and the text will appear.

Some folks have asked me how and when they can obtain copies of Hillary’s book in various translations and in different countries.  The best advice I can give is that you  contact the publisher, Simon & Schuster, directly for a response to that question.  One thing, however, is certain.  For now, at least, the book will not be seeing the light of day in China.

My sympathies go out to our Chinese visitors who relentlessly circumvent the Great Firewall to come here and see what Hillary is doing and saying.  We all know you were looking forward to reading this memoir.  Thank you to Ruby Cramer who sent me this for everyone’s information.
