I'm not usually a biography reader, but this was great. If you're old enough to remember Watergate, that part is fascinating, but the best bit is her progression from housewife to chairman of the Washington Post. She is humble, uncommon enough from someone with her background and eventual responsibilities. I found it inspiring and a good piece of contemporary history.

I really liked this book as a description of grown ups in the 70's; she accurately describes herself and every other mother in the 70's. Also, it is a very good description of how a woman was treated before and after "feminists." Her story is good, Watergate is only a teeny tiny part of the book, but it is a very good commentary on her generation.

This is a wonderful, engaging and interesting book. Katharine Graham tells her personal story with humor, insight and a very personal look at the important political changes and developments of the 1960's and 1970's. It is a fascinating read on some of the people at the center of the Watergate scandal.
