AN OBAMA FAVOURITE BOOK OF 2019

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF 2019

AN ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019

A TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019

'Her highly personal and reflective memoir ... is a must-read for anyone who cares about our role in a changing world.'
Barack Obama

'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.'
Colm Toibin

'It's a profound, heart wrenching, uplifting, and emotional journey through her life and what she's seen; starting in her youth in Ireland, and taking us through places like Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan, and eventually the White House ... All while navigating war zones and political culture as a woman and eventually a mother.'
Sophia Bush

'An unusually engaging political memoir...Power is an excellent storyteller, with a deft touch with anecdotes and a nice sense of humour.'
Times Literary Supplement

'Refreshingly frank and self-deprecating ... An energizing reminder that conscience has a place in the process of shaping foreign policy.'
TIME Magazine

'Uniquely personal and absorbing ... A riveting fly-on-the wall insight.'
Irish Times

'A wonderful book ... The interweaving of Power's personal story, family story, diplomatic history and moral arguments is executed seamlessly - and with unblinking honesty.'
New York Times Book Review

'Engaging ... Power's memoir is an insider's account of foreign-policy-making, and an intensely personal one.'
Economist

'Lively ... And strikingly personal ...[Power] writes vividly and lucidly here about her turn in the international spotlight.'
Vogue
