“[It is] that rarest of literary beasts: a public service memoir that is actually an entertaining read. …Solid writing tempered with a dry wit.… His personal observations on Kissinger, Mandela, Walesa, Havel, and Clinton add heft to a book that should both inspire a new generation to become foreign service officers and prove definitively that bureaucratic history can be fun.”
