Product description


"If you want to know what it looks like for a woman to ‘lean in,’ read Ambassador Kounalakis’s book. It is an inspiring example of a businesswoman-turned-diplomat taking every opportunity to effectively advance the interests, values, and security of our country."
—Janet Napolitano, former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security

"Ambassador Kounalakis brings us inside the world of American diplomacy in a personal, accessible way, sharing her experiences as a diplomat during challenging times."
—Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi

"Engrossing, edifying, and funny too. Kounalakis is a great storyteller, and she puts us in the middle of the action. Yes, action—even the ambassador to a peaceful place like Hungary sees more than her share."
—Dave Eggers, author of The Circle

"Eleni Kounalakis demystifies diplomacy and shows how a world shaped by the Internet and social media still needs ambassadors, especially those with strong principles and a good story to tell."
—U.S. Ambassador John Shattuck (Ret.)

"This is an all-American story told by the first Greek American woman to serve as a U.S. Ambassador."
—Admiral James Stavrides, U.S. Navy (Ret.)

"Kounalakis was a quick study. . . . [Madam Ambassador] offers further evidence, if anyone still needs it, that the European Union now faces the possibility of an autocracy taking shape within its border."
The Washington Post
