The journalists also examine areas of Clinton's campaign that proved damaging to the final election result - not least the emails leaks, and strong competition from Senator Bernie Sanders, whose criticism of Clinton during the primaries often mirrored Trump's later rhetoric about his rival.
At one point, the authors describe how, in the early hours of November 9 - not long after the Associated Press officially called the race for Trump, and hours after most of the Clinton camp had all but given up hope of winning - the 2016 Democratic nominee got a call from President Obama.
Clinton's loss was a shock to everyone, including (and maybe especially) her own campaign.
According to a new book titled, "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign", Clinton's top advisers urged her to apologize for her use of her own personal server, regardless of whether she had done anything wrong.
It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to anyone that "The 'Desperation of the Democrats in Exile" leans on the occult to keep the spirits of Clinton and Obama alive in the White House.
"I'm not ready to go give this speech", Clinton reportedly said. "If you meant that, you should say it".
"People who heard what former President Bill Clinton said during the dedication of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in August 2012, that his wife is famously "known to commune with Eleanor (Roosevelt) on a regular basis " put it down to joking".

"You're right", Mook assured her.
"I had no idea this was going on". President Donald Trump winning the 2016 election was a headline that rocked the world and shocked many. She was replaced by "longtime Hillary confidante" Capricia Marshall. At the end of the day, she's the most accomplished woman of her trailblazing generation in the field of politics. That's their job. I have done it.
Allen said that after the MI primary, Clinton was confused as to why she lost to populist progressive Sen. "That was my last race". "Now her detractors' fears were being realized, and the risk could no longer be ignored". He clashes with more senior aides who want to invest in more conventional polling, field organizers and yard signs. "She's with Us" would've been a better slogan, if no less ridiculously dishonest. No one really found her likable, relatable, or authentic. She said she wanted to say something about the glass ceiling-that it would someday be shattered.
Clinton must have winced again when, later, her husband, Bill Clinton, tried to console her by comparing her loss with "Brexit". But there was no overarching narrative explaining her candidacy, no framing of Hillary as the point of an underdog spear, no emotive power.
