Publisher's Summary

We've heard the name "Condoleezza Rice" over and over again as the spokesperson for President George W. Bush in matters of national security and foreign affairs. She presented a balanced, firm, unafraid presence to the country after the terrible events of September 11, 2001, as she spoke to the media and the public on behalf of the President. And, when the President has something to say about our friends and foes overseas, "Condi," as she is known to her friends, is usually standing in the background.Who is this woman who moves so easily through an international arena seen usually as a venue for men only? What prepared her for the intense pressure of the White House? Where did she learn the skills that have qualified her to have the ear of the President of the United States? How did she get where she is today? All these questions and more about this remarkable woman are answered in this audiobook.

Great Audio Book

I loved listening to the life and times of Condi. She is a remarkable woman and very intelligent. She is a strong proponent for education and her example to go beyond the normal should be an inspiration to all of us. Also, her upbringing from insightful parents and family proved to be a great source of strength in Condi's life. I recommend this audio book to all ages.

An Inspiration for Everyone

Forget that Condi is a women - forget that she is black - this young woman's life should be an inspiration to everyone - it is the true fulfillment of all that is the "American Dream." The author tells the story of this remarkable world leader, and the family that made it possible in such an entertaining fashion that I didn't want it to stop. The story goes beyond the chronology of a life and dwells into the whys of the events that led from her humble but well loved beginnings in the segregated south to a respected leader in world politics, academics, and multinational corporate boardrooms with honorable mentions in football, ice skating, and classical music.

Side by side with the story of a true renaissance women is the story of her parents and grand parents that should be a required instruction manual for everyone who contemplates bringing new life into the world.

The only criticism I have is the sometimes mangled pronunciation by the author of a few world personalities and geographic locations.
