Colin Powell is a man whose temperament and skills favor diplomacy and negotiation rather than force. Do you, in a case like this, when force is the situation in which you have become embroiled, choose to remain there for the sake of exerting possible moderation, or do you withdraw? In this tension lies the drama of his life. He was dropped eventually, ending the tension. No one questions his integrity or the motives which informed his choices, but this account of a great man's life leaves one with sadness of heart, longing for the choices that might have been made. It should not be missed by the serious reader, especially since choices of this kind are not exclusive to the upper echelons of power. This is one perspective on the entire human condition.
