Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Maraniss adequately reads what is, in essence, a repackaging of his biography of our forty-second president, FIRST IN HIS CLASS: A BIOGRAPHY OF BILL CLINTON. Maraniss takes Clinton's now famous August 17, 1998, speech regarding Monica Lewinsky and the Starr investigation and parses it into its smallest sections, showing the connections between that speech and earlier events in Clinton's life. The audiobook includes Clinton's entire speech and replays key excerpts. Maraniss's reading is good for a print journalist; his voice is low, calm, serious and credible; he gives a measured and careful reading. M.L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
