This is one in a long line of books in which famous people tell us how they used their talents and how we can apply their strategies to our own lives. That the famous person in this case is General Colin Powell makes this book stand out. His experience in war, peace, politics, and international diplomacy gives the work substance and weight. Powell is also one of the rare author-narrators who can support their written work with an effective audio performance. His strong, deep voice conveys assuredness and power. No surprises there—since he’s made a career out of getting people to follow him in terrifically stressful situations. He also has excellent diction and pacing, and he sustains his energy throughout the book. R.I.G. 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
