This book is a selections of Kennan's letter and lifelong diary. Written by one of the most eloquent and brilliant men of the centuries he lived through, it offers a fascinating story of one man's life of thinking, both professionally and personal, geopolitical, in depression and almost up to his moment of death at age 100 plus. You are in his mind and the editor did a wonderful job selecting letters and diary entries so that this flows like a book written over 80 years by a truly profound thinker, writer, and man. One of the best books I have read (note: I am a Kennan book collector and this book makes an ideal pair with Gaddes biography of Kennan)
