This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President | [Ellen Johnson Sirleaf]

This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President

The first elected woman president of an African country, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was also listed as one of the world’s 100 Most Powerful Women by Forbes. This evocative memoir recounts Sirleaf ’s childhood upbringing and rise to political power in Liberia. More than a simple biography, Sirleaf ’s account details how she stood firm in the face of physical abuse early in life and carried that strength over into her career as a young economist in Samuel Doe’s regime.

What the Critics Say

"This timely book, essential for anyone who hopes to understand West Africa in general and Liberia in particular, is a lesson in courage and perseverance. I finished it hoping that the rest of Africa's troubled nations will find their own versions of 'Mama Sirleaf.'" (The Washington Post)
