What makes Angela Merkel extraordinary? Read this book to find out. We explore her early life and education in post-war Germany. We then follow her road to professional and political accomplishments before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall, ending in her role as the first female Chancellor of Germany. Read about others' perspectives on her life, how her opportunities have been different to women in the past, and how she has broken boundaries.
