'The Secretary of State is America's face to the world, and in Dr. Rice, the world will see the strength, grace, and decency of our country. . . . I've relied on her counsel, benefited from her great experience, and appreciated her sound and steady judgment. And now I'm honored that she's agreed to serve in my cabinet.' -President George W. Bush, in his official statement nominating Condoleezza Rice as the next secretary of state. 'What (Condi)...articulates and lives in a personal faith that strengthens her in her demanding and controversy-laden calling.' -Christianity Today 'Sheds light on the personal and political history of one of Washington's most powerful figures.' -New York Daily News 'A well-written, highly readable portrait. It's hard to resist the story of a black woman born in segregated Birmingham, Alabama in 1954, who broke down every barrier to excel in an arena dominated by white men...thorough and engaging.' -Publishers Weekly 'A must-read for anyone serious about keeping tabs on the fast-paced political arena. Even readers with a disinterest in politics may find the success story compelling and hard to put down.' -The Star (Chicago, IL) 'In all my years of interviewing, I have never been prouder to spell my name w-o-m-a-n than after spending time with Condoleezza Rice.' -Oprah
