Ambition,intellect and recognition of opportunities...
This complex individuals rise from obscurity to becoming a household name in world politics fuelled by ambition and the study of history and eventually getting involved in politics is a story in its self. The twists and turns and his involvement with Watergate ( still not proved) helps to make this an interesting if believable story that leaves the reader(listener) bemused and seeking another view, the politics without an ideology leaves one feeling let down , reality and it’s meaning tells us the truth. God bless America.

A full account of Kissinger
It took me a while to get in to the book, this is most likely because I was more interested in the Nixon years than his college years etc.
The book gave a very detailed account of Kissinger from youth to his later years, it seemed complete and I didn't feel like it was being biased toward him or otherwise.
It managed to keep my attention throughout which for such a detailed book is quite an achievement.
I wouldn't say it was as accessible as Isaacson's account of Steve Jobs.

A comprehensive and insightful account
This is a long but worthwhile read that places the reader right into the hallways of US government during the second half of the last century and it does so through the action and words of a brilliant yet controversial figure.
A brilliant project and very well read.
