This was a very interesting autobiography of the first woman Secretary of State. Madeleine Albright was born in Czechoslovakia. During World War II her family fled to London. Then when communism took over their country, her family came to the United States. It really shouldn't have been a surprise that Albright got involved with foreign policy since her father was an ambassador before the war.

Albright did a lot as Secretary of State. She had to deal with Israel and the PLO, North Korea, Saddam Hussein, Kosovo, etc. It's hard to believe that she held that post for only four years.

I enjoyed reading about what happened behind the closed doors and about the human side of all the political characters around the globe.

I had a lot of respect for Madeleine Albright when she was in office and I still hold her in high regards after reading this memoir.
