Britain has tough libel laws and so for Bill Clinton to remove any chance of him getting sued he had to make a few modifications to his recently
published book, My Life. Most of the changes made were to portions that referred to Ken Starr. The book continues to sell well in America and the UK
despite claims of inaccuracies from critics.

Changing His 'Life' to Suit British Law
By EDWARD WYATT
Former President Bill Clinton does not like Kenneth W. Starr, the former independent counsel whose investigation of Mr. Clinton's sexual liaisons led
to his impeachment. But he might still fear him, at least in Britain.
Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
The book has actually sold quite well in Britain, and has sold 1.5 million copies in the US even though many passages are questionable.
For just one example, in this article, www.haaretzdaily.com...
Ehud Barak claims that Bill Clinton misreprepresents portions of peace talks that were held in January of 2000 by stating that he (Bill Clintion) was
responsible for the breakdown of Israeli-Syrian relations when Barak claims that Clinton was not even present for many of the meetings.
