I really liked this bio, it was honest and didn't shy away from talking about some personally painful or disappointing moments. I honestly think this should be required reading for high school history classes, I really gained a better understanding of the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia, as well as the history of my own country. Having only been 10-18 while President Clinton was in office I did not really appreciate what a sought after world leader he was - and to think he also balanced the budget and reversed the national debt too. Albright found a way to talk about her personal influences and experiences while bringing a complicated world history into better focus, nicely done, I look forward to reading it again.
