“Fearless, principled, compassionate for Africa’s poor and passionate for Africa’s future — Okonjo-Iweala’s book tells us what politics and public service should be about.” – Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education
“Brave declarations and indignant statements about fighting corruption are what we are used to hearing from well-meaning people in politics or business. How difficult and sometimes dangerous it is to fight corruption is not always appreciated. Okonjo-Iweala is a lioness on the hunt who writes eloquently to tell us the story from the front lines.” – Mo Ibrahim, Philanthropist and Businessman; Founder and Chair of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation
“A remarkable book by a truly outstanding human being. Okonjo-Iweala is not only a fine economist but also a charismatic leader. Good governance is a key element in fostering successful economic development, and corruption is deeply corrosive of governance. These reflections on fighting corruption are not only a gripping and moving personal story of stress and courage but a deeply thoughtful and constructive analysis of a fundamental aspect of economic development.” – Lord Nicholas Stern, I. G. Patel Professor of Economics and Government, London School of Economics; past President of the British Academy; Chair of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change; author of Why Are We Waiting?
