"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".

I resisted this book for years. How could the autobiography of such a successful businesswoman be anything but dry? Believe, me it isn't. This is truly a personal history, a fascinating journey through one exceptional woman's growth. And growth it was. Fortunately, Katharine Graham was capable of describing a personal and professional life that passed through marriage to a man whose mental condition deteriorated more and more seriously until his death--a death that thrust onto her inexperienced shoulders the executive function of a major publication. To the end, her greatest regret was that she had not attended Harvard Business School. This book is a sharing in the adventure through which the soul and skill and personality of a woman grew along with the changing state of women, and helped in that change. We share the achiement through which she gained an incomparable strength through tragedy, challege, and grit. She is hard to leave when the book is finished.
