Reading this made me feel bad. The TV news/entertainment business seems filled with some truly awful people with over-sized egos.

I'm not usually all that into celebrity biographies, but I have to admit to being curious about what Katie has been up to since she was the "it" girl on the TODAY show. This autobiography starts out strong. It's fascinating to me how someone goes from a regular person to a superstar on television. Katie did a great job of leveraging every connection and never giving up, even when the going wasn't always smooth.

Unfortunately, after her first husband dies and she reveals the fiasco that was CBS (also very interesting if you like reading about office politics), her career and her book peter out. She starts writing more about the progressive social mores of the time with a focus on Matt Lauer, and the book becomes more less personal and more judgmental.

As her career wanes so does the book.

This book is about wanting to be on a soccer team but sadly get cut from it. This causes them to be sad but finds interest in the science fair and they win a blue ribbon from it. This teaches children that it's okay to not be good at everything and you'll find what you're really good at eventually.
