About the Author
(Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times Book Review )
“[Power] is a very good writer, which makes it more fun and truly engrossing to read a memoir about a former U.S. official….A pleasure to read.” (Rachel Maddow, MSNBC)
“Power writes movingly about everything…and she delivers one of the best-written political memoirs of recent years.” (Fareed Zakaria, CNN )
“Amid the flood of memoirs from Obama administration veterans, Power’s stands out as worth reading. For starters, she’s a better writer than a lot of them—she was a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author long before she got into government. She’s also done more that’s worth reading about. Like the best journalists, Power has a gift for finding the perfect anecdote to illustrate a larger idea or theme, and this is the rare political memoir where you definitely shouldn’t skim the “early years” chapters. (Slate)
“Power writes with heart about her upbringing — in Ireland, Pittsburgh and Atlanta — and she is especially poignant when recounting a few traumatic episodes… Still, the book is suffused with humor, and [President Obama] furnishes the funniest anecdotes that don’t come from her charming children…The Education of an Idealist is a moving account of how to serve righteously, or at least how to try.” (The Washington Post)
“Engaging….Power’s memoir is an insider’s account of foreign-policy-making, and an intensely personal one.” (The Economist)
“Lively…and strikingly personal…[Power] writes vividly and lucidly here about her turn in the international spotlight.” (Vogue)
“A foreign policy guru reveals her many selves in a sweeping autobiography” (O Magazine)
"Power is a master story-teller . . . a brilliant self-portrait of an outsider turned insider, who is forced to grapple with the challenges that brings, and does so honestly." (The Independent (Ireland))
"A uniquely personal and absorbing account of [Power's] time at the heart of US foreign policy . . . Power's book gives a riveting fly-on-the wall insight into the Obama administration's foreign-policy decision-making and the inner workings of the United Nations." (The Irish Times ) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
