The first half of this book is like a Political Science 101 lecture, if that. The advice being given is often embarrassingly simple--"a president must find time to exercise every day." The second half of the book is more what I was expecting, with overviews of our relations with most of the world's important nations. But by the time she got around to it, I was already pretty disgusted.

This is a good follow up to the Bob Woodward books on the Bush presidency (Plan of Action; State of Denial). While Woodward employs a painstakingly detailed micro-perspective of one U.S.administration, Albright's approach gives us a whirlwind tour of current world politics from the macro-perspective of her long experience. Read this one as soon as you can. It will be dated by January 2009.
