“My book club read and discussed this book for March 2013. I think this would be a good book club pick for clubs who have members of different generations because the most interesting part of our discussion was when one of our older members let us know how things used to be and we were able to discuss how things still need to be changed. Some members thought it was just like a long magazine article that just covered the who, what , where, how, and why though. We did think it needed a bit more emotional depth to it. I, for one, was curious what her mother thought about the whole thing since her mother had lived in a different generation and had a husband who worked in the field and I think it would have been nice to have heard her thoughts and possible insights on the situation. And I also think it is a bit weird that the author didn't get a quote or two from her brother and sister in law, Maury Povich and Connie Chung, who lived through the era as well and were in the same business to see what their thoughts were on the history of it all. They may have been able to give a few insights on the whole women as reporters movement apart from the Newsweek aspect to add a bit more depth.”
