Strange

Starts off strong. Inspiring woman. Impressive career. But somewhere along the way you realize this is actually an autobiography in the third person. By the end it becomes brutal Trump-age self aggrandizement. The author offers no additional insight or counterpoint to Lansing's views.

BORING

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

no one

What was most disappointing about Stephen Galloway’s story?

it was so boring, I do not think insiders would even read it...nothing new here

Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?

NO No No this women cannot pronounce proper names let alone simple words.....her Mother was MARGO.....NOT MARGOAT......truly disappointing.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Leading Lady?

the self serving ones, it was clear this was a rose colored look at her life, the texture was not there

Any additional comments?

I am pleading to producers of audio books to check the narration before releasing
