    (180)

    A native of Birmingham, Alabama who overcame the racism of the Civil Rights era to become a brilliant academic and expert on foreign affairs, Rice distinguished herself as an advisor to George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential campaign. Once Bush was elected, she served as his chief adviser on national-security issues – a job whose duties included harmonizing the relationship between the Secretaries of State and Defense.

    Where does No Higher Honor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was initially intimidated by the length of this book but once engaged I found it fascinating. Condoleezza knows how to tell a story and provide that human element in the big events that is tough to find in the newspapers


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    George Bush comes off well in book but not so for Rumsfeld or Cheney


    What about Condoleezza Rice’s performance did you like?

    Her version of the events we are all familiar with was very believable and she was willing to admit her mishaps along the way. Her insights into other world leaders and their motivations was very interesting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An inside glimpse at people who made history

    Every church is driven by some controlling force: tradition, finances, programs, events, personalities, or even the building itself. But author and pastor Dr. Rick Warren, the founder of Saddleback Valley Community Church in California, believes that a church can only be truly healthy if it becomes "purpose-driven": built around the five goals Jesus stated in the New Testament.

    This book is a must read for anyone in church ministry and those who aspire to being a leader. Rick's comments are both motivational and highly practical. Once started I could not stop listening. My plan now is to apply his common sense principles to make my Church purpose driven for God. Thank you Rick for a great book.
