Yes, because it gives at least a superficial vision of a great man.
Because gave me insights of important and simple behaviors
Good real life anecdotes. Applicable, interesting and enlightening. It's hard to peg this as a 'self help', entertainment or educational book because it's all of those. Furthermore, Before reading this, Colin Powell was a politician like any other. Now, he's a person. Someone I could hang out with.
Colin. He brought a personal and understandable feel to complicated political issues.
Humor and emotion. In his stories, it's easy to hear in his voice what he was feeling and what he's passionate about.
His regret over starting the gulf war.
Good story and well read.
Excellent book, Gen Powell made a wise choice in narrating his own book, it was very well done and entertaining!
The personal anecdotes.
He's very engaging and draws you into the reading.
There were a couple of spots that made me laugh.
That it was read by the Author. I could sence the emotions and the authenticity of the author
Colin Powell, main character and storyteller.
His warm personality and humor
When he shares one of his greatest failures, about the alleged wepons of mass destruction in Irac.
I was inspired by Mr. Powell's honesty about sensitive areas of his life, and I belive that guided by his wisdom, I can grow/devlop into a better leader.
I will listen to this again.
It was read by Colin Powell. You hear the emotion he had for the story
It contained some very funny stuff.
The personal feel it gave. Colin Powell let you into his mind and his personal life. I literally stopped and jotted down notes prior to a job interview while listening to this recording.
Colin Powell went to two schools that I was very familiar with in New York. It solidafied his street cred :)
When he advised, get mad and get over it. Those were serious words of wisdom.
Yes, good advice in book
Yes, because of his military career and accomplishments.
Clear voice and easy to understand.
