Gianna offered the world the perfect Olympics and proved that one can make Greeks work towards glorious achievements. It is a pity her work was not respected by those bed Greek politicians that made her life difficult and led a whole country to bankruptcy ... A must read!

Capable woman, big ego. 11 juin 2013
Par muddyboy1 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
When one sits down to write and autobiography a person must have two things - a interesting story to tell and a bit of an over sized ego and Ms. Angelopoulos has both. Her claim to fame is that she was the driving force and architect behind bringing the 2004 Olympics to Athens, Greece. This was a tremendous accomplishment and a testament to her management and organization skills which were suburb. However, she doesn't flinch about throwing anyone who disagreed with her under the bus and apparently only made 1 or 2 wrong decisions from her youth to the present. (One is her first marriage) Also, there are dozens of color glossy photos of her and most with rich and famous people she met along the way emphasizing her importance. However, if you can get past her over sized ego it is a well written book and I learned a lot about her and Greek culture.

It's Ok 18 août 2013
Par Closet Book Freak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I received this book for review and I was very excited to start on a new journey in my literary quest to try new genres. This memoir started off with the beginnings of a promising politician from Greece. Here Gianna Angelopoulos will share not only her story but the story of the struggles of a bankrupt country and their uphill battle to win back the summer Olympics.
We are given a bit of background on past generations eventually leading up to her entry into this world, and how she grew up as one of two daughters, going through her early childhood past her rebellious years wearing clothing and makeup that no parents would condone, all the way into her college years where she laid the foundation to what would eventually be a very challenging but successful career.
At first I was very interested in the story of a woman coming from humble beginnings, and working hard to some how achieve a dream that many would deem unreachable, but as the book moved on I could not help but lose interested with each page. Something was off about this work that I was not able to enjoy it as I did from the start.
Maybe it was the many times she mentioned her husband that used his wealth to move mountains in her Olympic campaign, or the countless times she mention specific people (mainly men) that went out of their way to make her work a much unneeded struggle.
Now I understand that what she has done is nothing short of amazing. But as a reader I could not help but be frustrated through the majority of the book.
This memoir is about a strong woman that did not run away when someone told her no, it shares a story about a woman that will be remembered as someone that achieved greatness for themselves and her country.

Insight on Greece and the Olympics 20 juin 2013
Par Barbara - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
When I received the Gianna Angelopoulos memoir, I wasn't ready for the size of the book, but jumped right in. As the author described her life from a young Greek girl to becoming a politician, I was hooked from the first paragraph. Her dream while growing up was to be an Ambassador, and her story details how this happened , with much happening between childhood and the Olympics bid.
Ms. Angelopoulos tells of her meeting her beloved husband, Theodore, and giving birth to her three children,. I enjoyed this part to her story, as it made the understanding and appreciation of her more available to me. She became reality, rather than a wealthy figure from the news. She writes with such honesty that this romantic and intimate portrait of her leveled the candor. I wanted to know more about her fascinating life as I read further and further, and further and further.

Being as passionate as she is about Greece, when called upon to lead the organizational committee for the Olympics,Ms Angelopoulos was able to use this passion to push the Greek Olympics bid into a winning bid. Giving credit to her husband and the thousands of volunteers who helped make the Athens event a memorable Olympics, the author was able to impress me with her generous attitude. Because a woman did this, I was challenged as to what can be done regardless of gender, using the passion one has for a cause.
The many photographs tell their own story and allowed me to put faces with names in her life account.
I recommend this to anyone who struggles with women's worth. Her love for what she believes in comes through on every page and the reader can learn from the book that we need only to try.
What a tremendous gift to a graduate or anyone wanting to be inspired to a higher level in their life.

Beyond the human drama 23 juillet 2013
Par Rotta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The quest of one woman to bring glory to her country, despite the self-centered squabbles, backstabbing and betrayal of her political allies, is akin to the quests of all Greek gods: they are given the task and then beset with obstacles determined to make them fail. Gianna sets out on her journey, a target for all to bring down, and never falters. She rises above the ordinary to replace the bar of leadership to where it should belong; at the highest level of human worth: integrity - honesty - and in the honor of "my word". An incredible drama. Read it and learn the art of leadership and then make it count in your own private and meaningful life. As you begin your journey encourage yourself with the words,"I am the first volunteer, but I am not the last." Gianna Angelopoulos carried that torch into the stadium of life and her book speaks of that burning passion. Now let the bouzouki play.
Its not DRAMA.. its a fairytale gone bad! 19 novembre 2014
Par Dimitris L. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a GREEK I find this book a complete waste of money.. same as the olympics in my country in 2004.
Nowhere in the book she apologizes for spending millions for first class tickets (for her self and family) buying overpriced scalptures , spending enormous money on things that was not even connected to the olympics. And after 10 years the money she "took" is gone (she dont work) so what to do? Write (or even better tell somebody 10 things and let him write a book for me) and sell it to people who actually dont know the real story (of course not by they fault).
Found a kindle version on kindle a read it.. And I was completly right about her. Only self esteem and ego above Greece and everthing else besides HER!
