Antonia Felix's biography of Rice reads like an elongated resume of her subject and not much more. This book is awesome just because it is about Condoleezza Rice. It's very much a public relations work as she dutifully cites Rice's accomplishments. However, anyone who has paid scant attention to Rice has heard it all before.

Condi by Antonia Felix 2004 This is an interesting book both because it is well written and Condaleeza Rice is an amazing person to write about. Her grandparents and parents were academics even before. Пользовательский отзыв - Olivia Cameo Lewis - Christianbook. This was an extremely well written book! Taking 'facts' and weaving the story to give a vision of one's character objectively is difficult to do and certainly accomplished here. I will be recommending. Tam incelemeyi okuyun.

There is something about certain cultures that you just take t. .It’s like love-you can’t explain why you fall in love. g Princess was turned into a frog by her father, a wizard, who was jealous of her powers. One day Tsarevna Lyagushka (the Frog Princess) sees an arrow falling from the sky and catches it in her mouth. A prince steps out from the woods looking for his arrow.

The Rices attended the funeral, and one image from that day left a lasting impression in Condi’s mind. I remember more than anything the coffins, she said. The first Republican that I knew was my father, John Rice, and he is still the Republican I admire most, she said. My father joined our party because the Democrats in Jim Crow Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote.

This is the remarkable and galvanizing true story of Condoleezza Rice-sixty-sixth United States Secretary of State under President George W.

CONDI: The Condoleezza Rice Story by Antonia Felix Politico’s £. It is a short book and the outlines of the tale are already well known. The source for Bob Woodward’s masterly Watergate investigation, the Deep Throat of legend, turned out this summer to be Mark Felt, the number two at the FBI, whose ambition to take the top spot was quashed by Richard Nixon. The revelation was exhaustively covered when Vanity Fair broke the 30-year-old secret, yet The Secret Man is an astonishingly good psychological thriller, all the more riveting for being tantalisingly incomplete.

A portrait of George W. Bush's national security advisor traces her childhood, early musical ambitions, foreign policies, receipt of the NAACP Image Award, and distinguished career as a scholar, professor, provost, and advisor.

The book is well written and very easy to read. It did a great job at capturing all the glowing aspects of Condelezza Rice's career but missed the opportunity to really reveal who she was as a person in the midst of such incredible positions. Sure we learn of her childhood in the segregated south, her parents' etc. But how did all this really shape her. At some points, with some of her views, it's difficult to believe she grew up in theJim Crow south. I wanted to know what she believed in some of the policies or her ethos to life. It is is difficult to belief that such a trailblazer for women and African Americans did not have challenges and obstacles. I would have liked to have seen the articulation of her faith in action at various points throughout her stellar career. It could not have all been roses as the author puts forth.

Condoleezza Rice was the object of intense curiousity earlier this year during the controversial 9/11 hearings. Although she revealed nothing except the standard public relations talking points, Rice maintained her poise in the onslaught of intense scrutiny. So it's no wonder the Bush administration has increasingly leaned on her to argue their position about the war in Iraq.
Antonia Felix's biography of Rice reads like an elongated resume of her subject and not much more. It's very much a public relations work as she dutifully cites Rice's accomplishments. However, anyone who has paid scant attention to Rice has heard it all before. Sure we learn of Rice's childhood in Birmingham during the height of the civil rights struggle, her love of football and classical music but we get no sense of what really makes her tick.
Is she an icy, cold blooded schoolmarm as many have suggested or is there in fact a personality behind the image she presents? Does she wholeheartedly believe in the policies she argues for on behalf of her employer or does she entertain any doubts? Rice is obviously an intelligent woman and I strongly suspect she's a more complex individual than her press, good or bad, lets us believe. I'm sure many would love to know how she reconciles her personal views and beliefs as a preacher's daughter and African American with some of the stands and policies of the people and institutions she has served as a spokesperson for.
Read this book if you want a recitation of Rice's career accomplishments but if you're looking for more you'll have to wait for another biography.

It is history. I loved her attitude. It was a page turner. I recommend it to anyone who wants encouragement to pursue their career.

Very well written book that appears to be honest in recounting the history of this remarkable human being. She rose above her beginnings and worked hard at everything she tried. I would vote for her for POTUS.

This book was very interesting and enlightening to the life of the National Security Adviser. Regardless of political affiliation it is interesting that she has been influenced by many people from all spectrums of political thought and the book does a great job of showing the importance of her parents in her life. Great book!

This book is awesome just because it is about Condoleezza Rice. Lots of good information that give a better perspective to who she is.

Condoleeza Rice is unquestionably one of the major minds of our day. Her life history and accomplishments challenge any parent to love and support thier child to the best of their ability with God's help.
To the point, concise and easy read. Always admired, respected and adore Condoleezza. Reading of her success at an early age tells a story that anything is achievable if you set goals and work towards it. Thanks again.
