Read by Barbara Walters, the book is conversational and personable. It began without pizazz, but made up for it in its insightful views of early television, discrimination against women within the industry, and of how one woman's determination and willingness to work above and beyond propelled her to success. Walters' honesty about her insecurities and how they played a part in her drive to succeed is also an interesting aspect of the book. Walters conveys her passion for her work as well as a passion for her reading/listening audience in her willingness to openly share her heartbreaks as a way to give hope to those of us in her "audience" for our own lives.

Excellent memoir, narrated by the author, who has met, interviewed and formed friendships with people from all walks of life. She shares details about her relationship with her daughter, too, which are surprising. Loved it!

Interesting book, gives some background to the woman, however it does seem to be a little self serving. Note: the author is also the reader.
