The first elected woman president of an African country, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was also listed as one of the world's 100 Most Powerful Women by Forbes. This evocative memoir recounts Sirleaf 's childhood upbringing and rise to political power in Liberia. More than a simple biography, Sirleaf 's account details how she stood firm in the face of physical abuse early in life and carried that strength over into her career as a young economist in Samuel Doe's regime.
