And now, at last, the most important woman in the history of television journalism gives us that "whole package", in her inspiring and riveting memoir. After more than 40 years of interviewing celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life.

"She regales you with the juicy behind-the-scenes details of the celebrities she's interviewed, mixed in with stories of her own trials and tribulations. In the end, you envy her a little less and admire her more." (The Washington Post)
"Compulsively entertaining." (Salon.com)
"An unusually ambitious and successful book...suffused with an emotional intensity; it belongs to a part of American culture that Walters helped invent." (The New Yorker)
I enjoyed the book tremendously and learned many things about her childhood I hadn't known
I only like to read n0n-fiction. Bio's memoirs, true crime, profiling, History of wars. I'm interested in the truth of things.
a terrific insight into the woman. If you don't know her background, you won't know the woman. It about Barbara's drive and patience to get to where she wanted to be, NO ONE worked as hard as Barbara to see to it that she was respected and taken seriously.
And she did it all with grace, and dignity
Her relationship with her parents and how much she wanted to do what she could to help them when they need it.
It was all good. Maybe the way she handled her interviews with the powers in other countries
and her encounter with Guilda Radnar when Guilda imitated her as Barbara Wawa
Maybe not in one sitting, but Yes to two sittings
I have a new found respect and appreciation for how hard she worked for everything thing
Any fan of Ms Walters would enjoy this audiobook.
Ms. Walters has lead a fascinating and somewhat sad life, and I think the stories about her father, Lou Walters were my favorite. He was successful yet tragic, a risk taker and someone who had passion. He had so much and ended with so little for all of his efforts.
Because I knew so little about her personal life, all of the the stories about her family were my favorite.
Barbara Walters: her life life with royalty, the famous and the infamous.
Interesting, entertaining, unique insight into how she became the woman she is today. Amusing anecdotes.
