Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's place in world history has already been assured, as she is the first woman ever to be elected president of an African nation--Liberia in 2006. She recounts her own amazing journey, including a disastrous marriage, her education at Harvard, her imprisonment following Samuel Doe's 1980 coup, the brutal civil war that ravaged Liberia in the 1990s, and her eventual rise to the presidency. But she is more focused on determining her nation's fate for the future, as she analyzes the divisive history of Liberia and provides unique insight as to the steps necessary to make the country, and other African nations in similar financial straits, a viable participant in the global economy.


"The first thing to be said about Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's THIS CHILD WILL BE GREAT is that it is exceptionally well written, a true story that seems as much a thriller as it does the remembrances of an ambitious and brave woman." - Alexandra Fuller 05/10/2009

"This is the incredible story of a woman who spent her life talking tough to the lunatics surrounding her. It is an accessible walk through contemporary Liberian history, told by someone who was somehow always in the center of the political storm." - Helene Cooper 05/17/2009
