John Bolton looks back on his brief term as U.N. ambassador during the George W. Bush administration, explaining his relationships with Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, how he worked with smaller nations to build alliances, and how he dealt with crises in North Korea and Iran. Bolton's harsh tone may limit the book's audience to conservative listeners. Others may be annoyed by his comments on "the political wilderness" of the Carter and Clinton years and the intensity with which he presents his views. This abridged production covers Bolton's career, starting with a volunteer stint for Goldwater and fast-forwarding quickly to the current Bush administration.
