Synopsis

Personal History is the autobiography of Katharine Graham. It was published in 1997 and won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography in 1998. The book received widespread critical acclaim for its candour in dealing with her husband's mental illness, and the challenges she faced in a male-dominated working environment.

Reviews

On Aug 21 2007, Hazelwood_Booksellers said:
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.
