My American Journey by Colin Powell – my husband recommended this to me and I decided to try it. Normally, I have no real interest in military/political biographies but this is a good book. I think Mr. Powell would be a fascinating person to talk to and to know. I recommend this book if you are interested in significant historical situations/ people/ biographies. He gives a more personal side to any number of people most of us only know from the newspapers/news reports. His rise from being a C student to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is a great, encouraging story for anyone that has struggled. This book showed me that he has a good sense of humor that doesn’t always show publicly. I realize now just how much more depth there is to him.
