As soon as Robert Sherman arrived in Portugal, elected ambassador by Barack Obama, the first question he got asked was if the North American had a poor idea of the Portuguese. He promptly replied: "No, the Portuguese have a poor idea of themselves. The Americans don't even know where Portugal is." With this charismatic sense of humor, former U.S. Ambassador gives us his portrait of Portugal and the Portuguese, shares what he finds to be the most important parts of his term and reflects on the important leadership lessons that made his time in Portuguese territory so unforgettable. Above all, this is a love story of how it felt to fall in love with a country and its people.
