As to the movie that bears this name, this book is infinitely better and much much different. There isn't any attempt at political correctness or saying that the President has exceeded his authority in starting the war. He didn't, and the book explains the powers of the President very well. Also, the movie took out two of the best sequences in the book and one of its most memorable characters. The Coast Guard vessel captained by Red Weggner. In the movie, there are two drug runners arrested in the Gulf of Mexico by a Coast Guard ship. But in the book, this scene is expanded and includes a mock trial and faked execution of one of the drug runners in order to get the other one to talk. It's fantastic reading. And then, at the end of the novel, Red Weggner and his boys return to rescue Jack Ryan and company in the middle of a hurricane. They totally ignored this ending, going for the politically correct ending instead, which was a huge disappointment (Tom Clancy himself was very upset by this and vowed that no one would be allowed to make any books of his into movies again).
If you want to know the real story, read this book. Run as fast as you can away from that movie that poses as a Jack Ryan story. It's not. This book is.

I believe most of Clancy's works are unoriginal and somewhat boring, but Clear and Present Danger was personally offensive to me as a woman. Read morePublished on Feb. 12 2004
I'm not the biggest clancy fan but I could not put this book down. The action just never stopped moving and continued to escalate throughout the book. Read morePublished on June 13 2003
