Jane Pauley's struggle with bipolar disorder takes a backseat to her life as an anchor-woman. We are charted through an exhaustive and rather drawn-out summary of her rise to the top, her life as a wife and parent, and oh yes, the small role bipolar disorder seemed to play in any of it.

Perhaps this won't bother you if you're a great fan of Jane Pauley but since I have my Bachelor's degree in psychology I found her analysis of herself somewhat irritating and naive. If you happened upon this book looking for information about bipolar disorder, you'll be much disappointed and would be better off reading "An Unquiet Mind" by Kay Redfield Jamison. If, however, you're only looking for a memoir that would be more aptly titled "Jane Pauley: My Life as an Anchor-Woman," then, by all means, look no farther.

This was a great inside look at Jane Pauley's like. I couldn't put the book down once I started to read it.

Jane Pauley's memoir, now that she has reached mid-life and has decades of on-air accomplishments, is compelling reading. I read this all in one evening, which is very odd for me. I learned a lot about the person behind the glitter, the real person who has suffered personal hardships, emotionally and physically. A good read.

I recognized my own bi-polar condition after reading this. It's a quick read and quite interesting, even if you aren't a basket case like me!
