    This is the story of Condoleezza Rice that has never been told, not that of an ultra-accomplished world leader, but of a little girl - and a young woman - trying to find her place in a sometimes hostile world, and of two exceptional parents, and an extended family and community, that made all the difference.

    Roger says: "A truly amazing family."
    "No Blame or Excuses needed; She is awesome!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To hear Condoleezza speak about her issues growing up during a very difficult time and sharing the good times was great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extraordinary, Ordinary People?

    To hear how much her parents supported her and gave everything to her that they could and would even find a way to get her what they could not afford is a true Parent's love story.


    What does Condoleezza Rice bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    To hear Condoleezza speak really helps the reader hear the emotion of the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When her parents registered to vote and how her mother was given a simple question and passed so she was able to register as a democrat. Her father with darker skin was given an impossible question and he failed to register as a democrat. So he found a way to register...with the Republican Party. It is not the fact that her parents registered for one party or the other, but the story shed light on how they were excluded.
