A New York Times journalist chronicles her decade spent trailing Hillary Clinton as she pursued the presidency, describing her experiences through two presidential campaigns and how her own life ultimately became intertwined with Clinton's political ambitions.


New York Times bestseller

The Devil Wears Prada meets The Boys on the Bus”—New York Times

The dishy, rollicking, and deeply personal story of what really happened in the 2016 election, as seen through the eyes of the New York Times reporter who gave eight years of her life to covering the First Woman President who wasn't.

For a decade, award-winning New York Times journalist Amy Chozick chronicled Hillary Clinton’s pursuit of the presidency. Chozick’s front-row seat, initially covering Clinton’s imploding 2008 campaign, and then her assignment to “The Hillary Beat” ahead of the 2016 election, took her to 48 states and set off a nearly ten-years-long journey in which the formative years of her twenties and thirties became – both personally and professionally – intrinsically intertwined to Clinton’s presidential ambitions.

Chozick’s candor and clear-eyed perspective—from her seat on the Hillary bus and reporting from inside the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters, to her run-ins with Donald J. Trump and her globetrotting with Bill Clinton— provide fresh intrigue and insights into the story we thought we all knew. This is the real story of what happened, with the kind of dishy, inside details that repeatedly surprise and enlighten.

But Chasing Hillary is also a rollicking, irreverent, refreshingly honest personal story of how the would-be first woman president looms over Chozick’s life. And, as she gets married, attempts to infiltrate the upper echelons of political journalism and inquires about freezing her eggs so she can have children after the 2016 campaign, Chozick dives deeper into decisions Clinton made at similar points in her life. 

In the process, Chozick came to see Clinton not as an unknowable enigma and political animal but as a complex person, full of contradictions and forged in the political battles and media storms that had long predated Chozick’s years of coverage. 

Trailing Clinton through all of the highs and lows of the most noxious and wildly dramatic presidential election in American history, Chozick comes to understand what drove Clinton, how she accomplished what no woman had before, and why she ultimately failed. Poignant, illuminating, laugh-out-loud funny, Chasing Hillary is a campaign book like never before that reads like a fast-moving political novel.

Hillary Clinton was a bad candidate. She had a lot of baggage. That’s why she lost. She called other voters “ deplorables” She dissed a Gold Star mother who’s son died in Benghazi. The compound asked for support 100’s of times. An election was coming up for Obama and no help was sent. The American Ambassador and others died. She is a feminist when it suits her. When former President Bill Clinton was President, he preyed on numerous women and then lied about it. Hillary called the women liars and bimbos. No they were not. He faced impeachment , lost his law license and remained President. Now the Democrats were ready for him to be First Man. Hypocritical
