  "An incredible autobiography of an amazing woman. The very personal story of a woman born to wealth and privilege, surprisingly naive, who comes to adulthood in a storybook romance and marriage only to see her beloved husband succumb to manic-depression and suicide. It is also a corporate business story within the personal story of her learn-as-you-go career life as she's thrust into the position of the head of her father's Washington Post newspaper, steering it through some of its most tumultuous times; the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, the Pentagon Papers, and Watergate. And it is a Washington insider's power and political story, with an in-depth look at her relationships with the likes of Warren Buffett, George Schulz, Robert McNamara, fifty years of Presidents and their First Ladies ... and more. A leave-nothing-out intricate book so intriguingly written, with such forthright honesty, that it will keep you turning page after page from 1 through 642."
