Since President Johnson Sirleaf is now co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, I'll push to finish this quickly!
She is now running for reelection. Can't yet find results.
The book was more a history of Liberia than a memoir. There is almost nothing of her personal life. While this was diappointing to me, it is indicative of her belief that leaders must sacrifice their personal ambitions to the good of the country. So she has perhaps "become" Liberia.
