This is one of the best-written memoirs I've read, and one of the most interesting. Andrea Mitchell has had a career and a life that has brought her into close contact with virtually every major world figure of the past 30 years. She effortlessly guides you through those years, both summarizing the issues of the day and then providing her own take on the stories she was covering at that time. Particularly interesting is the behind-the-scenes story of the fine line she has had to walk as the wife of Alan Greenspan, a role that brought her into social contact with national movers-and-shakers--whom she then had to cover objectively as a reporter. This is a fascinating book for anyone who has followed politics and world affairs for the last few decades--and a great guide to those years for anyone who hasn't been paying attention.

I thought this book was okay. It is more about her life story as a journalist then confrontational interviews with "presidents, dictators, and assorted scoundrels". It deals a lot with Presdient Clinton and the presidential elections. It gets very boring in some parts, but for the most part, if you want to read the autobiography of Andrea Mitchell, then this is the book for you.
