The book is over-rated. It remains to be seen whether she is.

Good grief!!!! Who writes this drivel???
No, I did not read this book nor am I attending to - - Fake News is sooo pervasive today, is it any wonder the typical American adult is incapable of adult-level discourse?

I thought this book was wonderful, and I barely knew who Megyn Kelly was before I read it. It was intelligently written and engaging, and I loved all the tidbits of wisdom and life lessons woven into her stories.

I'm not a reader so most likely my opinion should not count for much. Most of the reading I found quite boring, but there were a few interesting segments. She is obviously an attractive, free-spirited woman. Glad she is not of a faith that suffocates her as so many females are in this world. Good luck to her and any more like her out there.

The only thing I knew about Megan Kelly - prior to reading this - is that she is on Fox, had some sort of kerfuffle with Trump, and spoke out when Gretchen Carlson accused Roger Ailes of sexual harassment. Because I wanted to read in depth about the 2nd and 3rd items, I read her book but oh, what a waiting game she played. First I had to learn her whole life story. A good story has an arc, and something or someone changes what you first believed. To say this book has no arc is putting it mildly. Even the Trump incident, when all was said and done, had her cozying back up to him. Yes; we all know he's a bastard; so what is to be learned of her making nice with him after all that was said and done?

If you care only about the same incidents as me, read the book from page 200 onward and you can learn what she has to say about the things you care about. Read the whole book and you'll learn about so much more, all of it a giant yawn.

An easy read and an interesting story. Ms. Kelly is fearless but I guess you would have to be going from lawyer to the news business. Both are jobs that could eat the avg. person alive!
It does not appear (according to the book) that she comes from money. She remarks how she (like many other young people) was saddled with a mountain of student debt from college and eventually a law degree. But she came out the other side and had successful careers in both law and television. Now that she has left Fox news, I am curious what the next chapter will be!

Really enjoyed the book overall. Impressed with the transition from lawyer to journalist.

Sometimes wry, often earnest, with a few previously undisclosed nuggets of fact about the 2016 presidential election and Fox News. Political and media junkies may want to skip the early chapters on junior high and high school, and the intermittent self-help pep talks.

I loved this book. Megyn is a brave, strong, woman with a great message.

Run of the mill and a waste of time.
