NEW YORK, May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- My Greek Drama: Life, Love and One Woman's Olympic Effort to Bring Glory to Her Country (Greenleaf Book Group) by Ambassador Gianna Angelopoulos which debuted at #18 on the New York Times Nonfiction Bestseller for the May 26th print edition will enter the top 10 at #9 in the June 2nd print edition of the paper. Publisher Clint Greenleaf says of the title, "When Ambassador Angelopoulos approached us with her book idea, we knew that we had a timely, compelling story on our hands. We're excited to see that American readers are agreeing with us."
My Greek Drama goes beyond memoir. It is a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred exploration of political challenge, success, failure, betrayal and ultimate redemption. Ambassador Angelopoulos provides an in-depth account of what happened in 2000, when slow progress and gridlocked bureaucracy put Athens in danger of losing the Olympic Games. Under her leadership, Athens made up for lost time and gave the world what IOC President Jacques Rogge called: "an unforgettable dream Games."
President Bill Clinton calls My Greek Drama, "…a useful guide for those who seek to transform lives, organizations, and even nations."
Ambassador Angelopoulos has been touring the United States in support of the book speaking at events in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, Tampa, and Boston. She has been interviewed on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Fox TV, WBUR-Radio, and the Jim Bohanon Show along with numerous media outlets across the country, including Sports Illustrated, CNN and iVillage

Kennedy School of Government. She has also served with distinction as President of the Greek Bidding and Organizing Committees for the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens.
