He was born in Harlem to immigrant parents from Jamaica. He knew the rough life of the streets. He overcame a barely average start at school. Then he joined the Army. The rest is history--Vietnam, the Pentagon, Panama, Desert Storm--but a history that until now has been known only on the surface. Here, for the first time, Colin Powell himself tells us how it happened, in a memoir distinguished by a heartfelt love of country and family, warm good humor, and a soldier's directness. MY AMERICAN JOURNEY is the powerful story of a life well lived and well told. It is also a view from the mountaintop of the political landscape of America. At a time when Americans feel disenchanted with their leaders, General Powell's passionate views on family, personal responsibility, and, in his own words, "the greatness of America and the opportunities it offers" inspire hope and present a blueprint for the future. An utterly absorbing account, it is history with a vision.

"Comfortable and confident in today's bareknuckles geopolitical arena, the self-effacing Powell has always been willing to deflect credit if it meant achieving his stated goals." "But make no mistake. Colin Powell is and always will be in command." "The Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell reveals the deep-seated wisdom and rock-solid foundation beneath Colin Powell's leadership success." "The Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell takes us inside the man Newsweek calls " ... the most respected figure in American public life." Whether revealing Powell's ability to make individuals perform, or demonstrating his uncanny knack to articulate vivid goals and values, this one-of-a-kind book reveals the man's techniques in a voice that is crisp, clear, and unmistakable in its resolve." "Change before you are forced to ... Put people over plans ... The Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell provides no-nonsense, proven leadership solutions. It examines the principles that motivate Colin Powell - nobility in purpose, credibility of leadership, integrity in organization, and victory in performance - and shows how they can help to guide you through virtually any situation. Just as imporant, it paints a portrait of leadership that is vintage Colin Powell - short on talk, long on action, and guaranteed to succeed when failure is not an option."--Jacket+-+640338625523514ocn071313158book20060.21DeYoung, KarenSoldier : the life of Colin PowellBiographyA biography of the soldier-statesman follow's Colin Powell's life from his Jamaican roots and youth in the Bronx, through his decorated career in the Army and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to his role as Secretary of State and departure from the post+-+352695559622898ocn757483449book20120.18Powell, Colin LIt worked for me : in life and leadershipBiographyQuotationsPersonal narrativesGeneral Colin Powell served as Secretary of State under President George W.
