    What can one person do? 

    In this vibrant, galvanising memoir, Human Rights Advocate and Pulitzer-Prize winning Writer Samantha Power offers an urgent response to this question. 

    As she traces her path from Irish immigrant to war correspondent and activist to eventually becoming the youngest-ever US Ambassador to the United Nations, Power writes with a unique blend of suspenseful storytelling, vivid character portraits and disarming honesty. Her account illuminates the challenges of navigating the halls of power while trying to put one’s ideals into practice (and raise two young children along the way), and it shows how – even in the face of daunting challenges – each of us can make a difference.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "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 Tóibín)

    "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)

    Great and motivating read

    Samantha Power's writing style is impeccable as always. A wonderful account of how to become UN ambassador and great insights into the practices of US politics and diplomacy! The only minus in story are the constant self-righteous remarks about Russia and corrupt governments, while not shining enough light on US failings.
