It was a bit of a disappointing read. A lot of the time her anecdotes made her seem like a bit of a brat rather than the precocious girl I think she was trying to describe. I liked the bits about Uncle Billy, I was curious about that and one of the reasons I wanted to read the book. A lot of the times she doesn't go into her feelings or thoughts on certain events in her life, for example why she decided to retire. And I was disappointed the book ended after the birth of her third child, I would have liked to hear about how she became a US Ambassador. Overall it was interesting, though.
