This is a big read, but I loved it. We used to live in Northern Virginia, and the Washington Post was my favorite paper. No, I'm not liberal, but I loved it anyway. Fascinating look at a woman born into wealth, but didn't really get to choose her path in life. Fascinating look at behind the scenes at big newspapers, what really goes on. The stresses of running a large paper, management issues, strikes, guilds and unions, Watergate, Pentagon papers, an inside look at Warren Buffett and many famous leaders: it's all here. An awesome look at women's issues through the century. Katharine Graham's mother was perhaps most liberated of all for the times...very outspoken. I enjoyed the family history.
This is really an amazing book in so many ways, not the least of which is the politico-historical perspective. Though it's long, I found it entertaining and enlightening...a glimpse at a woman in her time.
This book has a lot of interesting detail of history and famous people that the author shared her life around in the political & business realms. She was a role model for future women in business as she paved the road.
