  • This book reminded me that an optimistic outlook on life makes everything better. I was also reminded that my life isn't as bad as the next persons. Condoleezza also shares her deep faith in God; a faith that was taught to her by her father who was a pastor. I was able to relate a lot of what she had about an ingrained faith that is just relied on and never really question. It's a part of who we are. This book was a blessing.

  • Outstanding. We were born the same year, in the same town and lived in the same neighborhood! I am so thankful that she walked the path ordained for her life by God.

  • I was disappointed that the book included so much about Condi's ancestors and the Civil Rights Movement rather than her life. The last half of the book had more about Condi and her faith which I found very interesting. I have long admired Condoleezza Rice and am happy to know more about her life.

  • There is such insightful information in reading biographies. Reading this one, regarding the faith of Condoleezza Rice has not only given information about her life and faith in God, it has also strengthened my faith as well.I highly recommend it, especially for young women of African American descent who also has strong Christian upbringing. Through her faith, Condoleezza Rice dared to step out and be different. It was not only her deep abiding faith but a determination to allow herself to be a [...]

  • I always liked Condoleeza Rice while she served under the Bush administration, but after reading/listening to this book I have an even deeper respect for her. This is a great book about more than her faith but her life in whole. You will cry, laugh, and grow in your appreciation for her and many other Americans who have shaped our country.
