In 1972, Stahl joined CBS News where as a cub reporter she was assigned to cover a "third-rate burglary" at the Watergate. Stahl went on to cover the most important stories of the next two decades, and three presidents - Carter, Reagan, and Bush.

Lesley Stahl's job offer from CBS came with an ultimatum -- "if you can't start tomorrow, forget it." The year was 1972, and opportunities for women in network television were rare. With the same determination that would define her career, she promptly departed Boston, went to Washington, and began her ascent to the top of broadcast journalism. In a male-dominated world, Stahl established herself as a "scoopster" and a "door kicker," breaking some of the most important stories in Washington, including Watergate. She would cover the next three presidents, witnessing the disintegration of Jimmy Carter's presidency, the rise and fall and rise again of Ronald Reagan's, and the unpretentious, regular-guy quality of George Bush's. In telling her story, Stahl touches on themes that have defined the later part of this century: the changing role of the press in politics, television's coming of age, and the dilemma of the professional woman. With witty anecdotes, wise observations, and never a hair out of place, Stahl provides an insightful and entertaining look at her world and ours from behind the reporter's microphone.

The problem I had with Stahl's book is that I STOPPED WORKING. Luckily, I am a writer, so no one really noticed. But this is a book so rich in behind-the-scenes detail that you can hardly put it down.
Here is the line I liked best in the book. At a ferocious briefing with press secretary Larry Speakes, he is saying "I'd like you to report...." Stahl interrupts: "We don't care what you'd like us to report." Get it?
Finally, I was impressed with how much credit and space she gives her producers, even as they refer to her as "news babe in ridiculous heels."
Risinal
I enjoyed this look at television news from a woman's point of view. I've always admired Lesley Stahl, but knew little about her personal life. Her book is honest, and she is very forthcoming about how she was more career-driven than family-driven, and left much of the childrearing to her husband. It was slow in a few spots (harping quite a bit on Ronald Reagan) but all-in-all well worth reading!

Lesly Stahl, as we know from 60 Minutes, has had a varied and long career. She entered the news world when women were a rarity. She had to put in many long hours and days to earn her way to the top. True she was an attractive blonde, but she also had the intelligence and innate curiosity to push herself ahead.

We first hear about Lesley while she is working in Boston as a journalist with a romance that was not going anywhere. She received a job offer from CBS,,but was told to be there the next door. She went and worked up to the White House Correspondent for CBS. We hear about some if her more interesting interviews, Matprgaret Thatcher, and the three Presidents she followed. Eventually she got the job on 60 Minutes and moved to New York City.

L's a little bit about her romances, Bob Woodward for one,never was no chemistry. She married and had a child. She is very hard on herself, wondering before every other woman if you can have it all. She learned you can have a little bit of everything. Her career as one of the first women as a correspondent is akin to other women of that time. However, Leslet Stahl hit the big time, and she has stayed there. An I spring story for women who work and those who don't.

This memoir begins in the author's 30th year (1972) when she went to work for CBS as a White House correspondent. It ends in 1992 when she left Washington to move to New York City and "60 Minutes" fame.
Her story is well told with no whining and much humor. The political stories are many and deftly presented. She gives a primer on what it takes for a woman to be a top White House correspondent. It is not for the faint of heart. Think 12-hour days, constant traveling, stress to the max, keeping your adrenalin and aggressive instincts at a fever pitch at all times, and make sure you look glamorous no matter what.
At times, I felt Ms. Stahl was too hard on herself. She reiterates that her husband, child and family are perfect; she caused the only clouds on the horizon. She and her mother are very close, and there is no mistaking the senior Ms. Stahl is a formidable lady. Her husband had some career problems that deeply depressed him. With the unbelievable pressures of her job, it's hard to see how she could cope with a family life at all. She is a wonderful mix of utmost aggression and high femininity.
This is not a tell-all book. She admits to a rather staid romance with Bob Woodward and radiates a certain fondness for all the Commanders in Chief she served (with the exception of Richard Nixon). Her description of her interview with Margaret Thatcher is priceless. Let's just say Ms. Stahl did not come out victorious.
Ms. Stahl is careful to credit all her colleagues, though she gives the CBS brass quite a pounding. Her comments on her boss, Dan Rather, are always supportive, but it is easy to see Mr. Rather is a difficult man to work for.
The book is well written, as you would expect from a good journalist. It reads quickly and well. The author's cheerful compassion is hard to resist.

Lesley Stahl does a very good job of combining her remembrances of the men who occupied the White House and her own career as a CBS News correspondent.
Her descriptions of all the presidents, and those nearest and dearest to them (both personally and publicly) are exactly right - from the paranoia of Richard Nixon on down. She stops with George Bush, probably because she wasn't in the Washington press corps anymore when Bill Clinton moved into the White House.
Combined with Ms Stahl's description of Washington's inner circles over the years is a somewhat detached description of her years with CBS News and with her family. Her personal story is not badly written, but I didn't really get a sense of her feelings toward her parents or her daughter, although her love for her husband comes shining through. On the other hand, her various friendships, battles, and other interactions with Dan Rather, Bill Plante, and others in front of and behind the camera at CBS News are very well done; I got a good sense of what these people are actually like - more than what I see of them when I watch the news.
It's truly a shame that Ms Stahl's description of her family life isn't as natural as the rest of her book. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few times when I was working behind the counter of the now-defunct Crown Books store a block away from the White House. I found her to be a warm, friendly person who spoke very naturally and lovingly about her daughter and other personal (but not TOO personal) topics - quite at odds with the impression I got reading her descriptions of them in her book.
Even with all that I've mentioned here, I would still recommend it.
