The paperback version of Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices features a "new" epilogue which contains nearly all of the passages that appeared in the original epilogue—though multiple parts have been completely removed.

Though a lengthy segment on the birth of Hillary Clinton's new grandchild Charlotte was added to the epilogue, very little of the original text that appeared in Hard Choices was removed and remains word for word.

The Washington Free Beacon has identified three passages that have been removed entirely from the book's epilogue, which can be read below.

The first removed passage is of a personal conversation in which President Barack Obama asked her to stay on as secretary of state, and how she declined despite the "tug of her ‘service gene.’"

The updated epilogue is also without this brief discussion of economic problems at home, including how "middle-class incomes have been declining for more than a decade."

Also removed from the epilogue—fittingly due to the expected launch of her campaign on Sunday—is a passage on her deliberating whether or not she will run for president in 2016.
