In 2001, when Madeleine Albright was leaving office as America's first female secretary of state, interviewers asked her how she wished to be remembered. "I don't want to be remembered," she answered. "I am still here and have much more I intend to do. As difficult as it might seem, I want every stage of my life to be more exciting than the last." In this "humorous, self-deprecating account of her past two decades as a professor, businesswoman, mother and grandmother" (Wall Street Journal), Albright recounts clashing with presidents and prime ministers, and chalks up the wins and losses—professionally and personally—as she continues to forge her own path.
