Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st-Century Memoir by Madeleine K. Albright

From Goodreads: “Six-time New York Times bestselling author and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright—one of the world’s most admired and tireless public servants—reflects on the final stages of one’s career, and working productively into your later decades in this revealing, funny, and inspiring memoir.”

I really wanted to like Hell and Other Destinations: A 21st-Century Memoir, as I respect Madeleine Albright, but I was ultimately disappointed with this book. The first part of the book is good, but the following 2/3 just didn’t interest me. The most interesting parts were the times she was summarizing her previous books, which have to be more interesting than this book. Albright mentions all the businesses and charities she’s involved in, and the people she works with, but rarely goes in depth about interactions with said people. I agree with the other reviewers who said this book seems more like a cash grab book than anything substantial. I will, however, probably pick up her previous works which seem more interesting than this turned out to be.
