Extraordinary, ordinary people : a memoir of family, Condoleezza Rice. JOHN AND Angelena Rice were extraordinary, ordinary people. They were middle-class folks who loved God, family, and their country. I don’t think they ever read a book on parenting. 1st ed. 1. Rice, Condoleezza, 1954-Childhood and youth. 2. Rice, Condoleezza, 1954-Family. 3. African American mingham. 4. African rmingham-Biography. They were just good at it-not perfect, but really good.

In conducting this journey into the past I also had the pleasure of returning to the places my parents lived and talking with their friends, associates, and students. I am so glad I had the chance to connect with so many who knew them. I was also contacted by people who didn’t know my parents but recognized in my story their own parents’ love and sacrifice. Good parents are a blessing.

I purchased this book on the recommendation of a coworker. I was hesitant to purchase this book as I had mixed feelings of why I was encouraged to read this book but I am so glad I did. Up until this book I did not know much of condelezza's accomplished life or her struggles. This book also gave me a different political perspective on various government programs and concepts. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Ms. Rice's career or her political perspective. Great read!

I have always loved Condoleezza Rice. So I knew that I'd love this book. However, I was totally enthralled by her writing; this book was an easy and natural read. Not a single part was uninteresting. One would expect to discover large events in such an exceptional life, and Ms. Rice's life was filled with such accomplishments. You can understand how her family's support and her personality combined to produce the successful, lovely person she is. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed this book, I intend to read her other books. This was one of those experiences where I savored the reading and was very sorry to reach the end. I'm just a deer in her headlights.

I bought this product for my step daughter, she has just turned 20 years old and is starting her third year in college. See her role models thus far are reality stars and music artists. As a black woman growing up there has to be something better then seeing scantily clothed women taking over the media. I know that Condoleezza had it rough but she overcame the typical stereotypes and has become a power point in American History. I know that my step daughter has a long flight back to the east coast and hopefully this will plant the seed of inspiration.

This is an extraordinary book written by a woman I've long admired. CONDOLEEZZA RICE: A MEMOIR OF MY EXTRAORDINARY, ORDINARY FAMILY AND ME won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work for Youth/Teens. But even an old white geezer like me was able to dovetail its messages into my ordinary life and realize that special people are inspirations to be listened to and emulate.

Reading for enjoyment is my most important goal. But learning from what I read is almost as important and sometimes ignored. In Dr. Rice's book I heard three important messages; cherish your parents and the heritage they have given you, keep your vision strong and focused, and don't give in to lesser urges that threaten to disrupt your life's journey. I have bumbled through three-quarters of a century skirting the edges of all three.

I have followed the career of this beautiful and skilled woman, never failing to be moved by her lifework. Her remarkable rise to be Secretary of State for the United States of America is a story every person, young or old, should honor. Her spirit, willingness to accept any challenge, and ability to overcome obstacles of race, gender, and age are traits unlike any other I've witnessed. I see pride, devotion, and a certain pugnacious attitude towards criticism that has propelled her to the forefront of world leaders.

We may never know the true story of her behind-the-scenes comportment. I sensed a certain resistance to interference with her priorities in her writing. I suspect that she voiced opinions that were so strong and well-grounded that opposition was seldom exercised. Her racial opinions are reasoned and forceful, yet easily accepted by all except those who don't really deserve a platform. And she plays the piano beautifully, a talent not easily attained. I feel certain that there was immense respect for her with perhaps undertones of resentment and jealousy. Those negative feelings were probably shed by Dr. Rice with graceful ease.

This book is important, I think, because of the message it sends to people everywhere that there's really only one right way to pursue life, and that's with a dedication to doing the "right" thing. We all know in our hearts the definition of the "right" thing. Following that knowledge without wavering is the answer to being a happy and valued member of this world. It sounds lofty, but is certainly identifiable and within reach. But it does take effort, something on which Dr. Rice didn't skimp.

A big part of that effort is maintaining the love and involvement of your family. Dr. Rice's love of her parents is presented in the strongest and most unapologetic expression I've ever read. It's clear that making sure they understood her love was her most cherished accomplishment.

This book is inspirational and full of momentous life lessons from a remarkable person, a must read.

Courage, integrity, and fortitude. These are the words that come to mind when I reflect on the story of Condi as a child and the intense love and devotion that was a part of her immediate family. The great educator of music for the very young child Shinichi Suzuki said it best when he claimed, 'Where love is deep, much can be accomplished.' Condi's home was a stellar example of that belief. From the time that she was born, Condi's parents poured their hearts, souls and their very beings into the nurturing and development of their precious child. Yet they were trying to make their home in the 1950s in Birmingham, AL, a city that was deeply divided by racism.

As an educator himself, Condi's father had a wide influence upon the lives of many of Birmingham's young people, and he was responsible for making responsible and productive citizens and leaders of many who would have otherwise had a grim future.

This story of hard work, sacrifice, and determination is a must read for all young people today regardless of ethnic or social background. It is a story of what is possible for every American who is willing to pay the price of personal sacrifice for a life of personal prosperity and a life well lived.

Such a lovely story of a little girl growing up during some difficult times in a wonderful caring family. She accomplished so very much and attended the finest schools and became the epitome of success. What a blessing to our country. I hope her biggest dream comes true and she becomes the Commissioner of the NFL - she'd be perfect and things would run much smoother! And on her way there perhaps she could straighten out the NCAA. I would love to meet her !
