‘Her highly personal and reflective memoir … is a must-read for anyone who cares about our role in a changing world.’
‘Samantha Power's book is honest, personal, revealing. It is about the development of a young woman's inner strength and self-knowledge. But it is also a political book, alert to both the power of political will and its limitations.’
‘It’s a profound, heart wrenching, uplifting, and emotional journey through her life and what she’s seen; starting in her youth in Ireland, and taking us through places like Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan, and eventually the White House … All while navigating war zones and political culture as a woman and eventually a mother.’
‘An unusually engaging political memoir…Power is an excellent storyteller, with a deft touch with anecdotes and a nice sense of humour.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘Refreshingly frank and self-deprecating … An energizing reminder that conscience has a place in the process of shaping foreign policy.’
‘Uniquely personal and absorbing … A riveting fly-on-the wall insight.’
‘A wonderful book … The interweaving of Power’s personal story, family story, diplomatic history and moral arguments is executed seamlessly ― and with unblinking honesty.’
New York Times Book Review
‘Engaging … Power’s memoir is an insider’s account of foreign-policy-making, and an intensely personal one.’
‘Lively … And strikingly personal …[Power] writes vividly and lucidly here about her turn in the international spotlight.’

It's quite biased, reading this you wouldn't be aware of all the problems the US government's interventions caused in middle East and Arabic world's.
On top of that it's not particularly well written, (it's not badly written either) just ok.
Seems a bit pointless all in
Samantha Power makes it an easy read with her style of writing and forensic analysis of situations she so often found herself in.
