Brief and Informative
A quick toe-dip into the ocean that is the accomplishments of Chancellor Merkel. If you're wondering "Who is this chick", this book will satisfy your curiosity and potentially inspire you to read more. WARNING further reading on Audible is in German however you can buy Angela Merkel: Europe Most Influential Leader which is in English if you want to read old-school style.

ok for a short read
there was a lot of background on Merkel's political career. not much on her personal life or her handling of the Ukraine conflict. it covered her belief in the refugee crisis well.
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel
Overall, I enjoyed this short biography. I would have liked to have hear the personal information at the beginning. Being American, I have virtually no understanding of Germany's governmental structure or of it's numerous political parties and seemingly ever-changing alliances. A little history and background there would have been most useful.
