"Man of the World, by Joe Conason, is so valuable…[The book] offers a great deal of interesting detail and, just underneath the surface, a rich, believable portrait of a master politician out of office: needy, rivalrous, thin-skinned, proud, hot-tempered." - The New York Review of Books
“The author's often absorbing chronicle captures the energy and charisma of the former president as he turns to the admiring global community, launching a “frantic, peripatetic career as the world's best-paid public speaker” and finding a mission in his philanthropic work in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. . . . the book offers sharp insights . . . The author offers many telling details.” - Kirkus Reviews
“Conason shows his writing and research chops to full advantage in this engrossing look at former president Bill Clinton in his post-presidency years. From the book's first page—a detailed January 2001 snapshot of Clinton's first morning as a private citizen—the book grabs the reader's attention and holds on tight. . . . detailed and intimate . . . . Coming in the midst of a particularly fierce election season, this look at Clinton and his extraordinary work ethic may strike readers as almost poignant.” - Publishers Weekly
“This deeply researched narrative about the 16 years since Bill Clinton left office sheds light on his strengths and weaknesses.” - The New York Times Book Review
“A compelling portrait” - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
