Singular Perception Of Hillary Clinton Of the 2016 Election Sought after By Readers
Much has been written and discussed over the last year, but there seems to be an overwhelming desire among people to get the singular perception of the presidential candidate of the Democrats Hillary Clinton and of the historic events leading to the 2016 election. This was a statement delivered by the president and CEO of Simon & Schuster Carolyn Reidy.
Hillary Clinton Questions What Happened
The curiosity among readers can be well understood because the outcome of the election delivered a result that was unfathomable by most. Various stories of hacking during the election and the furious debates between the two presidential nominees had been seen and heard by Americans. Was this the most controversial presidential election in America during the recent times? One can continue debating on this subject and even make individual conclusions. The title What Happened will provide readers with the perception of the Democratic candidate which could satisfy their desire for first-hand information.
The Republicans are certain to debate What Happened and even provide counter views of their own. President Trump may or may not have the best ratings until this date, but the president has certainly ruffled a few feathers during his initial months in the office. Pres. Trump had made a commitment “To Make America Great Again” and the readers would be looking for the Democratic perspective of how he intends to accomplish his objective. The readers could be trying to understand from Hillary Clinton What Happened, during the election which led to an unfavorable result.
Will the readers be satisfied by the singular perception provided by Hillary Clinton in What Happened? Will they develop a singular perception of their own after reading the book? Will Pres. Trump also decide to tell what happened during the election? A number of questions will be raised by readers and critics alike, but at the very least, readers have the benefit of understanding What Happened during the 2016 election from the perspective of Democrats.
The Associated Press has mentioned that the first week’s sales of What Happened have overtaken the sales of the last book by Hillary Clinton during the first week. The first book spoke about the time Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State, which has already been shadowed, but this book still falls short of the sales figure of the 2003 memoir, which spoke about the highly publicized affair of Bill Clinton along with Monica Lewinsky.
Simon & Schuster have already begun preparing for the next generation of readers, keen on getting information about the Clintons. They have just published a picture book version of the title by Clinton from 2006, It Takes a Village.
Simon & Schuster seem to have done a great job and are also delving into the past to publish picture books of earlier versions of the titles by Hillary Clinton. Readers now seem to be very interested in What Happened, as the book attracted a lot of attention.
