All hat and no cattle

I agree with Kirkus: unremarkable showbiz froth. There's not a lot in here about her career progression that you couldn't learn from the Web, and she reveals nothing personally that might answer the question, What makes Hoda tick? Lots of glossy wonderfulness. And then ...
I agree with Kirkus: unremarkable showbiz froth. There's not a lot in here about her career progression that you couldn't learn from the Web, and she reveals nothing personally that might answer the question, What makes Hoda tick? Lots of glossy wonderfulness. And then the parts of her life that were difficult such as reporting in difficult situations, were glossed over with triteness. I skipped over a lot. I've read a number of media personality bios and autobios and most are much more insightful than this.

    Great Little Book

    Hoda shared her personal life with us, from growing up in a family that immigrated from Egypt to the USA, to her personal battle with cancer and divorce, and ending with the rise of her career. It was well written and easy to read. I would recommend it if you are a fan of hers.

    Great, quick, read!

    If you are a fan of the Today show, this is a must read. She is a strong woman who has lead a very normal path to the place that she is now. The recipe that she shares in this book is also delicious!
