The United States' first female secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, tells her fascinating life story--focusing on both her public and private lives. Students of foreign policy will learn much, particularly from Albright's descriptions of diplomacy in the Middle East and other hot spots. Albright is also candid in her discussions about the various personalities that defined the Clinton administration, and she covers every topic in painstaking detail. This memoir is extremely long, and the choice of Albright as reader makes it seem even longer. Her raspy, almost grating, voice is difficult to listen to for long periods. While memoirs often benefit from the author's own telling, this one is an exception. D.J.S. 2004 Audie Award Finalist
