Barbara Walters makes my "most fascinating people" list for sure. Her long memoir is a great example of the balanced mix of entertainment, education, gossip, personal anecdotes and world events that she has spent so many years perfecting on national television. I feel like she has tried in every instance to remain fair and objective, while standing on the uncompromising platform of telling her own story.

Pretty much for the last half-century, if there was anything of interest happening anywhere in the world, Barbara Walters was found to be somewhere in the vicinity. She is a woman of a previous generation, and obviously is mannered in a way that we are just not that used to. I find it quaint and interesting to see those behaviors and opinions juxtaposed against the liberal and feminist path that her life has traveled.

I enjoyed this quite a bit.
