"One day I'll be in that house," said ten year old Condoleezza Rice as she gazed across the White House's expansive front lawn.
Of course, Condi made good on that promise. With poise and gracefulness?combined with an iron will and determination?rarely seen in Washington, Rice has become one of the most iconic and influential figures on the world stage. This is her story.
Condi provides an in-depth study of the life, faith, and achievements of one of America's most fascinating women. From her humble beginnings in segregated Alabama to her academic career, from her first days in Washington to her appointment as Secretary of State and beyond, Condi investigates Rice's rise to political prominence. Drawing from in-depth research, Mary Beth Brown explores how Condi's parents, mentors, faith, and defining moments have helped her grow into a position of power and global influence.
Here is a story of inspiration, of principle, and of the limitless opportunities for those who pursue their dreams with unfailing hope and dogged determination.

Condi, is a true to the title book, an amazing biography of my hero, and my only inspiration in the political arena, Condi lived through possibly the darkest moments in American segregation and yet went on to become the youngest Provost of Stanford University, the first Woman National Security Advisor, and the first African American woman Secretary of State. From the dangers of the south to the safety of the White House during the national crisis of 9/11, Condoleeza is tough as nails and yet so proper and but nonchalant with her interests like Football who would have guessed, well this is by far the best biography i have read I hope you enjoy.
What a beauitful Lady
