As the first female speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi is in a position to offer credible advice to America’s female citizens. Simple and unsophisticated, this memoir is most suitable for younger Americans, who can benefit from Pelosi's positive messages (believe in yourself; understand the source of your power) without being distracted by the awkward writing. Pelosi's stilted narration underscores the simplicity of the text and reveals her disdain for those who disagree with her highly partisan beliefs. Her methodical pace and deliberate pronunciation may be appropriate for younger listeners but may sound like an endless stump speech to those more erudite. Pelosi's delivery falls short of peeling back the political veneer to reveal the personal story of this powerful woman. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
