Autobiographies/biographies are difficult to write. The reader wants the truth, and sometimes the simple truth can be boring. I believe this book was a bit self serving, but if a writer doesn't blow her own horn, who will. I enjoyed her descriptions of various conversations she had with many world leaders. I liked having small glimpses into the 112 countries she travelled, and was interested in her attempts to balance a bit of family life within her heavy working schedule.
I am a strong believer in human rights for all, so I naturally liked her working towards that aspect of politics. Her participation through her years as a First Lady and Secretary of State gave her the opportunity to try to further many causes that she believes in and share a great deal of information in this book.
I know that many people will avoid this book for political reasons, but while it is certainly not a book that I "couldn't put down," I recommend it as an interesting read that can be picked up every few days for a look into the life of a very interesting woman.
