About this title


"Colin Powell is the most effective general officer we've had since George Marshall."
General Colin Powell embodies the fulfillment of the American Dream. Born in Harlem to a wonderfuly supportive family of Jamaican heritage, and raised in the poverty-ridden South Bronx, Powell's discipline and determination drove him to become the highest-ranking military official in the nation. Now, after 120 interviews with family, colleagues, and General Powell himself, Washington insider Howard Means traces the extraordinary life of the man behind the medals.

From the Publisher:

My 13-year old son chose this book for a class project and I think he was very impressed by Colin's
story. He's not quite ready for the BIG Colin Powell autobiography so this book was perfect for him.
I read it along with him. It's a great summary of Powell's life, broken down in chapters that are very
accessible and excellent for YA reader's as well. I could tell that my son was very taken with
Colin's life and identified with many aspects of Colin's youth -- like the fact that Colin was not
an "A" student -- but still managed to make a huge success out of his life via a military career.
Howard Means has captured the true essence of Colin Powell.
