After 9/11, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright decided to examine the role of religion in modern politics. THE MIGHTY & THE ALMIGHTY is the interesting result. Albright's experience as a public speaker and professor is evident in this eminently listenable audiobook. While one wishes that she had audibly smiled when reading the book's humorous anecdotes, she does everything else right. She makes good use of her modulated, pleasantly raspy voice, varying her tone and rhythm to lighten the dense information and pacing the narration so that listeners have time to digest the material. An informative author interview is an added benefit at the end. This is an excellent production of a timely volume.
