it was ok

Hard to wade through all the library history

I loved the parts of this book that were actually about Ruth Rappaport. She was such an authentic person, who was honest about her weaknesses and mistakes, all the things that make us human. She wasn’t portrayed as a super-woman, so it was easy to relate to her amazing story. I had a really hard time getting through the material that seemed to have more to do with the history of libraries than the story of Ruth. Sometimes I just couldn’t make the connections. I ended up doing a lot of skimming through that material and tried to focus on the parts that were more biographical.

Maria Wroblewski Yes, so true, and why the pages at the end of chapters that are concerned with the author's experiences. Poorly edited book.
