Brazile's book recounts her experience during the 2016 presidential race, including her time serving as the DNC's interim chairwoman for the final months of the general election campaign.

The book has prompted criticism from former Clinton campaign aides, who have accused her of painting an inaccurate portrait of the former secretary of State's White House bid.

In the memoir, Brazile casts Clinton as a well-meaning candidate, whose campaign ultimately lacked the enthusiasm and heart needed to win, at one point comparing her New York City campaign office to a sterile hospital ward.

Brazile also writes in the book that she once considered replacing Clinton and her running mate, Sen.
