I have the great honor to leave the first review for this amazing book. Ms. Kantor and Ms Twohey, two brave Pulitizer Prize winning investigative journalists, have given us their in-depth account of unraveling the alleged sex scandal that rocked not only Hollywood, but the world. And the complicity behind one of Hollywood's most disspicable moguls—or should I say monster— keying on his abusive sense of laissez faire and entitlement. A gripping page-turner that reads like a great detective story, it should be read by everyone—men and women alike. And by your sons and daughters once they are of age. The truth is the most powerful tool we have. Ms. Kaplan and Ms. Twohey are both inspirations, in more ways than they know, as are all the "she-said" victims who have spoken out. I can't wait to meet them at their book signing later this year in Los Angeles! BRAVO!
This book is so much more than what you think it will be. Not a bunch of warmed-over Harvey Weinstein, but a fascinating and even thrilling tale of breaking the HW story. Deeply personal, it delves satisfyingly into so many related issues. The Christine Blasey Ford sections, in particular, were terrific. A page turner that will have you thinking about the BIG issues.
I expected to be difficult to read after all the stories. This a well written book by the authors. The courage of the authors and The New York Times demonstrated in this story gives me hope. Because it is well written and organized I could not put it down
I read this book in one day over two sittings. This was a tremendous feat of journalism and reminds us of the importance of a free press. The authors spent 3 years on this story beginning with the women Trump abused, the long history of abuse by Weinstein and finally the Blasey/Kavanaugh incident. The bulk of the book covers the Weinstein investigation. The women had to identify victims and get them to speak up. But ultimately the needed to get corroboration and documentation from within the Weinstein organization. Fortunately they found the insider who was outraged enough by Weinstein's behavior to provide the documentation the authors needed to publish their original NY Times article. Kudos to the authors and all the people who put themselves out there to do the right thing. I look forward to seeing this book on Best Seller lists very quickly.
Having followed this story as a NYT subscriber, I doubted there was much more to offer. I could not have been more wrong. The classic “story behind the story” is revealed here and is as compelling as the headline itself. The authors waste no time and breathlessly narrate the story with no effort and characters that are other-worldly.
“She Said” is a breathtaking read - for many reasons. An absolute must read for the world we currently live in. The authors have done an exceptional expose on a deeply important topic.
I read every word on the Weinstein story and its aftermath in the New York Times and elsewhere. So I wasn’t sure I’d learn anything new in this book. Like Spotlight and All The President’s Men, “She Said” showcases the tenacity and painstaking work behind great journalism as well as the courage of the brave sources who went on the record with The New York Times to speak truth to power. A refreshing antidote to the ‘Fake News’ assault on truth era we are living through. I hope someone turns this incredible story behind the story into a movie.
