From the Publisher"Twice As Good is a riveting, deeply revealing portrait of the woman who became 'the face of America' around the world—Condoleezza Rice—arguably one of the most powerful, complex and enigmatic black women of our times."
"Mabry, who had Rice’s coöperation here, succeeds in giving coherence to her character, from her roots in segregated Birmingham—where her middle-class parents were both inspired and mortified by Martin Luther King’s radicalism—to her broken engagement to the 1975 N.F.L. Rookie of the Year and her bond with George Bush."
-The New Yorker
"Mabry sets out to find the real Condi, to get behind her public façade and reveal her personality—and he succeeds, thanks to candid interviews with her friends and relatives as well as present and past associates."
"Deeply reported and vividly told, Mabry’s new book offers us an indispensable window onto Condoleezza Rice, an American original whose story is far from over."
-Jon Meacham, Managing Editor for Newsweek
