What the critics say

'Vividly told scenes, with bracing honesty . Power's vibrant prose, exuberant storytelling, and deep insights into human nature make for a page-turning memoir.' Publishers Weekly 'She is utterly compelling in her eye-witness accounts of violence and political standoffs and shrewdly witty in her tales about balancing diplomacy and motherhood.' Booklist 'Samantha Power's book is honest, personal, revealing. It is about the development of a young woman's inner strength and self-knowledge. But it is also a political book, alert to both the power of political will and its limitations. It is the journey of an idealist, whose conscience was forged in Bosnia, into the corridors of power where compromise does battle with commitment. It is the story of someone with the soul of an outsider becoming, as an insider, a passionate witness to events in the White House and the United Nations during the Obama years.' Colm Tóibín, author of Brooklyn and Nora Webster 'A celebrated writer and an accomplished diplomat, Samantha Power is one of the most outspoken and important voices in world affairs today. Her new memoir is absorbing, heartfelt, and remarkably candid about the challenges she faced in reconciling her passion for human rights with the realities of governing.' Madeleine Albright 'Samantha Power's compelling memoir provides critically important insights we should all understand as we face some of the most vexing issues of our time.' Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy 'Samantha Power's captivating memoir is a rare and intimate revelation of the inner workings of international diplomacy as well as a heartening beacon of a book for young women and men everywhere.' Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin
