This author is clearly biased in her reporting, giving a free pass to every Republican she has covered while, at the same time, attacking both Bill and Hillary Clinton at every opportunity. For example, when she talks about how Newt Gingrich successfully brought down several Democrats by exposing their ethics violations, she fails to mention that he was tarred by the same brush that he was wielding against his opponents. This amounts to revisionist history. I had to laugh when she said that Bill Clinton and Al Gore appeared diminished when compared to George Bush after 9/11. Unfortunately, I soon became disgusted with this book and tossed it in the trash.

This book does not have substance. It is mostly filled with boring stories, not nearly as significant as she thinks they are. Sad to say, but even though we all have unique lives that seem extraordinary from *our* point of view, most are just boring for others. This is a case of that.

This memoir alternates between glowingly blinkered and spin-doctor snarky depending upon which political figure is being described, and, sadly, this book highlights everything that is wrong with modern journalism. One would hope that a more fair and balanced retelling of historical events had been forthcoming. Very nicely written, but, overall, quite subjective.

A well written review of the 80's and 90's from a reporter's point of view with personal and behind-the-scenes descriptions that add great interest. Confident and yet self-deprecating, honest and not self- serving.
