Item description for Condi: The Condoleezza Rice Story by Antonia Felix...
Overview We've heard the name "Condoleezza Rice" over and over again as the spokesperson for President George W. Bush in matters of national security and foreign affairs. She presented a balanced, firm, unafraid presence to the country after the terrible events of September 11, 2001, as she spoke to the media and the public on behalf of the President. And, when the President has something to say about our friends and foes overseas, "Condi," as she is known to her friends, is usually standing in the background. Who is this woman who moves so easily through an international arena seen usually as a venue for men only? What prepared her for the intense pressure of the White House? Where did she learn the skills that have qualified her to have the ear of the President of the United States? How did she get to where she is today? All these questions, and more about this remarkable woman, are answered in this audiobook based on the book by Antonia Felix.

Reviews - What do customers think about Condi: Condoleezza Rice Story?
Became a Condi Fan After Reading This Book Aug 17, 2008
I'm not American so I was not well acquainted with Condi Rice and her life, both private and political. I came to admire her very much after reading the very detailed book which contains a lot about her private life, and a lot about her professional life which takes up most of her time and energy. She would be a great president, she has the guts and the intelligence and the sobriety to represent America in a very positive way.
Very Informative Apr 22, 2007
I thought this biography of Condoleezza Rice was very informative and enlightening. Particularly interesting to me was the fact that she had excellent guidance from her parents who encouraged her to pursue her education to the fullest. The books talks of her pursuing her diverse talents and her ambition to succeed. Although I felt that the book glamorized her life a bit too much and indicated that she rarely made mistakes, she is one who deserves everything she has worked hard for. She is truly an inspiration.
Condi: Over-achieving, Tenacious, Scholarly but Unanswered Questions Feb 20, 2007
This account of Condoleessa Rice is most helpful in understanding her upbringing, her motivation and her significant abilities. The author appears to have interviewed a large number of persons: 27 in number. However, no persons of highest notoriety were interviewed. Instead those notable persons were quoted only from other sources. The author typically did not write about Ms. Rice's personal views which was disappointing.
The book unfortunately leaves several important questions unanswered, namely:
1. How was it possible that Condi could have leaped over the normal path of ascension that others historically were required to endure and instead be awarded the esteemed position of Stanford provost? 2. Why did Condi leave her position as Stanford provost for the significantly lesser position of Hoover Institute senior-fellow? The author's answer given in the book is not credible. 3. Why did the author never interview Ms. Rice for this book? What was Ms. Rice's response when she was asked for an interview? 4. How did Ms. Rice's notable but inadequate credentials of being a college provost qualify her to be appointed as head of the National Security Agency of the most powerful country on Earth? 5. Why did the author not discuss negative issues regarding Ms. Rice as that would have given the book a balanced assessment? 6. How was Ms. Rice's pro-abortion stance received by the conservative presidents that she served? 7. Why was Ms. Rice's step-mother interviewed instead of her father, especially considering her step-mother was not even mentioned until 3/4 of the way through the book? Since Ms. Rice gave her father the highest credit for her success, would he not have been the preferred choice?
While the book is enjoyable, it does leave some hard questions unanswered.
Rice: staple of life Jan 10, 2007
Condoleeza Rice is unquestionably one of the major minds of our day. Her life history and accomplishments challenge any parent to love and support thier child to the best of their ability with God's help.

It was an incredible biography. It was especially poignat in that my children went to St, Mary's Academy in Denver. The book was well written and clear complete and concise. It was a testiment that blacks can compete and be sucessfull if the right environment and attitude, is present.
