Leaving office in 2001 as America's first female Secretary of State, Albright considered the possibilities: she could write, teach, travel, give speeches, start a business, fight for democracy, help to empower women, campaign for favored political candidates, spend more time with her grandchildren. Instead of choosing one or two, she decided to do it all. Her memoir of the past twenty years is a haze of constant motion: navigating half a dozen professions, clashing with presidents and prime ministers, learning every day.
