Show synopsis An extraordinary frank, honest and generous book by one of America's most famous and admired women, owner of one of its greatest newspapers, the "Washington Post". This is more than the mere life story of a successful woman. It deals with power and politics at the centre, and the relationship between the White House and the press, notably over Watergate. "A well-written, fascinating, moving and, in its social and historical context, important book".- Sarah Bradford, "Daily Telegraph". "Extraordinary...it is frank, self-critical, modest when necessary, proud when justified and, above all, one that can tell a good story"- Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, "New York Times". "The best autobiography to come out of Washington for years...It is a splendid and beguiling story". Patrick Brogan, "Glasgow Herald". "An autobiographical masterpiece, adroitly combining the public and personal spheres. Frank, sensitive and bubbling with humour, it is a fascinating account by an impressive person"- "Economist".
