User Review  - Diana - Goodreads

I enjoyed reading this book, even though I didn't finish. Albright's history is fascinating: childhood, education, political influence, international experience. I got as far as the revelations about her Jewish history, both how interesting and painful that revelation was. Read full review

User Review  - Deb W - Goodreads
