Tough Love by Susan Rice

Staff Pick

Tough Love (Simon & Schuster, $30) is Susan Rice’s fi rst book—and what a book it is. Fearless in her approach to life and work, Rice is equally fearless in telling her story. She recounts with candor and self-reflection the seminal moments from her childhood in Washington through her celebrated diplomatic career, which included appointments as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor in the Obama Administration. Memoirs are hard to write, but Rice has the courage to venture where many others will not, describing in vivid terms the agony she felt as a child caught in the crucible of family tensions as she navigated her parents’ contentious divorce. She reckons with her own mistakes and limitations personally and professionally. And she doesn’t gloss over the tarnishing that comes when one has to operate in the cauldron of 21st-century politics—especially the fall-out of the Benghazi crisis, which cost her professionally and left deep emotional scars on her family. Tough Love is her story, in her words, unfiltered and unvarnished. Exactly what a great memoir ought to be.
