'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.

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
