Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

A revealing, dramatic, deeply personal book about the most significant events of our time, written by the former United States ambassador to the United Nations 

Nikki Haley is widely admired for her forthright manner (“with all due respect, I don’t get confused”), her sensitive approach to tragic events, and her confident representation of America’s interests as our ambassador to the United Nations during times of crisis and consequence.  

In this book, Haley offers a firsthand perspective on major national and international matters as well as a behind-the-scenes account of her tenure in the Trump administration.       

This book reveals a woman who can hold her own - and better - in domestic and international power politics, a diplomat who is unafraid to take a principled stand even when it is unpopular, and a leader who seeks to bring Americans together in divisive times.

Hated this book

This book is terrible. I couldn’t listen to more than an hour. I refuse to finish it. It’s just pro Trumper going on and on about conservative garbage.

So Much Respect!

Great audio book. Nikki has a beautiful voice and cadence. It is well written - allowing the reader/listener to walk in her shoes providing insight into her first principles and there is a recognition of her grit and determination to keep to those principles through the stories told and all while treating those around her with respect and directness. There are heartbreaking stories - the Charleston nine who were murdered after sitting for an hour and praying with a white supremacist in their historic church in Charleston South Carolina was particularly difficult to listen to but the stories don’t end with the heartbreak but rather she proceeds to describe how people can choose to move forward in the face of adversity even those of such a heart wrenching life altering nature. How people from different sides in a conflict or those with just different life experiences and backgrounds can chose to focus on their similarities and come together to help heal rather than divide and tear their communities apart. The stories of families and women she has met around the world - their resilience, their strength in forgiveness, their determination were inspiring. Well there’s that and a whole lot more. I won’t spoil it.

Nikki Haley: an American Dream Realized

Reading and listening to a good story is both entertaining and inspiring. Without a doubt, this is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read and then listened to. Ambassador Haley, is both, filled with grace and grit, in telling her story, from being an immigrant to becoming an American Ambassador to the United Nations.
This story will give you hope, and inspiration for what it means to be an American Citizen. We have been given a singular Gift, as Citizens of the United States of America, to live our lives of Grace, with Grit and Determination, so all Americans can live, with Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. It is Our God given Right, Constitutionally.

'With all due respect, I don't get confused!'

I certainly would not bet against Nikki Haley one day being the president of the United States.

A TRUE AMERICAN HEROINE

THANK YOU FOR MAGA! An insightful narrative of our nation and the true grace and grit that is Nikki's character.

An excellent example of how to stand up for yourself and your country without acting ugly.

You're a woman, I get it

A little background, I am a died-in-the-wool Trump supporter. I voted for Cruz in the primary, but after Trump's extraordinary accomplishments over the last 2.5 years, I now know I should have voted for Trump all along.

I have liked Nikki Haley (a lot) ever since she splashed onto the world stage as UN Ambassador. Therefore, I looked forward to this listen. She read the book herself, and I loved her voice and her performance. I was also moved by her life story and her work ethic.

But the most startling thing I learned from the book was Ms. Haley's deep sense of sexism. She points out so often how, because she is a woman, she sees things differently. And women are better suited to political offices than men because of their sensitivities. She touched on this in various parts for the first few chapters. But in later chapters her sexism became a dominant theme.

I had no idea she felt this way. In my view, most conservatives do not play identity politics. The liberals have this lane all to themselves. True conservatives, again in my opinion, believe only in performance and results. We don't give a crap about your gender, race, or any other identity issues...just do your job.

I was deeply disappointed to learn of Nikki's identity politics. Yes, Nikki. you're a woman, but we don't care. Get over it! Unfortunately, I'm doubtful she will change.

Fatigueless

I didn't know much about Nikki Haley and you don't normally think of a national politician with this kind of poise. She focuses on the positive even when describing race and what it's like at the U.N. Of course she's a politician, so I was guarded against drinking cool aid. But I'm gushing to my wife about her beauty pageant story and how she tends to win people over no matter the situation.

She explains at the mechanics of how she left the U.N. position, yet I didn't understand why she left when she did. I classify this book as 'uplifting' in a way not based on ideology, religion or party affiliation. I feel like I could hear the author's voice, see her image on the news constantly for at least three years without feeling a sense of fatigue.

objective well written

This book was very straightforward objective book that tells the story of Nikki Hailey's accomplishments and struggles growing up in rural South Carolina to becoming the first woman minority Governor or South Carolina and her time as US ambassador to the UN. It is heartfelt and straightforward without political mudslinging. She praises and criticizes Democrat and Republican colleagues and weighs her opinions based on facts and her firsthand experiences and not based on political parties or partisanship. I was actually quite surprised how objective and non-partisan this book was.

It also gives a peak into the inner workings of the Trump Whitehouse between 2017-2018 from her experience and is once again quite objective and non-partisan. I very much enjoyed this book and highly reccomend.

Nikki Haley is a Badass

I think Nikki Haley Brilliantly side stepped the Resistances in the White House. She will be a Formidable POTUS one day. Her Strenght, Determination and Love of Country are exactly what we need in our Government. America First, Our Strenght is Necessary to the Worlds Future, because without a Strong 🇺🇸, the Chaos in the World takes over.

A great peek behind the curtains of US politics.

This memoir of the past few years of Nikki Haley's political career, and especially her time in the Trump administration is an eye opening expose of just how murky and gritty the waters of the US swamp really are. Written in an easy style and read in the soft, southern drawl of the author herself, the book was completely engaging and well worth the time/cost. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of truth regarding the Trump presidency.

Saint Nikki the 1st

A wonderful book. A heart warming and sometimes tearjearking tale. The only reason the story didn't get the full five stars is because she left her UN post too early and would have loved her to do Trump's full term (hopefully eight year term).
