Diplomacy and Diamonds - A Great Book For All Time
on October 22, 2011
If you're not familiar with her name, Joanne King Herring, you may be familiar with the 2008 movie Charlie Wilson's War starring Tom Hanks as Charlie Wilson and Julia Roberts as Joanne, which is a true story about two incredible Texans and what they accomplished across the U.S. and Afghanistan!
But the movie only takes you so far and only tells you so much compared to Joanne's new book Diplomacy and Diamonds. This book is a great read and offers (among other things) the background and realities concerning Afghanistan. You'll also enjoy a lot of laughter and tears along the way as you get to know more about Joanne and her extraordinary adventures that few women (then or now) dare to undertake!
It's truly a book for everyone, which is why I ordered 6 more copies for my family members
