I am always sad when I get to the end of good books, and I felt a huge feeling of sadness when I reached the last page of Madeleine Albright's memoir. In the course of a few hundred pages, I had gotten to the point where I felt of "Maddy" as a friend. Not only does she provide excellent insight into foreign policy and the state of the world during her time in office, her personal story of becoming an American citizen, building a life with a husband and children that then ended in divorce, and picking up the pieces to pursue her own dreams leading to her becoming the first female Secretary of State is quite inspiring and one of the many reasons why Madeleine Albright has been and continues to be one of my personal heroes. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for insight into how the Clinton administration approached the world, especially in the second term. By far one of the most inspiring and informative books I've had the pleasure of reading this year.
