Colin Powell is, has been and probably always will be a "good soldier". That means he does what he's told to do by a superior and doesn't question the reasoning or sources behind the assignment. Unfortunatetly that's what almost stained his remarkable career when he presented a cooked up reason to invade Iraq at the U.N. Enough said about that. He is not trying to rewrite history in this book, just passing along well learned lessons and insights gained through many years of public and personal experience. The man is a true patriot and sets a stand out example of what it takes to be a humanitarian who cares about other people and the country he so honorably served. Yes, I have a great amount of respect for General Colin Powell. If you like the man you'll buy the book. If you don't like him buy it and read it. You may find out you were mistaken about him.

For a life that was tainted by lies told at the UN, the book does nothing to redeem such a wasted life. Harry Belafonte provided the best assessment of Colin Powell. No amount of self-serving, distortion of history can undo the damage Powell brought upon himself. That sad thing is that Powell still thinks It Worked for Him. Save time, money and trees. Just skip it!
