An engagingly written memoir/ autobiography. Susan Rice gives us her family background and her upbringing that included divorce trauma and privilege and her education. She recounts her finally recognizing and marrying her life partner. She then recounts her experiences in government in the Clinton administration including a searing view of the Rwanda genocide that has often haunted her foreign policy recommendations. She returns to government service in the Obama administration where she first served as the US ambassador to the UN and then as the Foreign Policy Advisor. The details of how decisions were made is fascinating.
This is interesting reading as she is on the cusp of serving as the Domestic Policy Advisor under Biden. Her experience with Ebola will stand her in good stead. But her ability to extract and provide a council and President with good information and advice along with her ability to corral agencies in executing policy decisions will be fascinating to watch.
