MEMO TO THE PRESIDENT ELECT How We Can Restore America's Reputation and Leadership

by | Read by Madeleine Albright

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

It's a plus that the former secretary of state herself narrates this discussion of the "state of the world," along with suggestions for future foreign policy. Though Albright's voice is not exactly mellifluous and much of the delivery is dry, her manner is congenial and she often manages to project her feelings. For instance, she gives some comments a wryly humorous turn. Her delivery is generally crisp, clear, and well paced, although occasionally awkward or stiff. It's sometimes distracting to have suggestions meant for the next president addressed directly to "you"--unless you'll be the next president. Still, this is a solid reading of a thoughtful book.
