Publisher's Summary

Anchor of the number-one news show on cable, The Kelly File, Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly writes her much anticipated book, a revealing and surprising memoir detailing her rise as one of the most respected journalists working today. From the values and lessons that have shaped her career to her time at the center of the chaotic 2016 Republican presidential primary, this book offers an inside look at an uncompromising woman's journey to the top of the news business.
In the two and half years since her show, The Kelly File, premiered on the Fox News Channel, Megyn Kelly has cemented her reputation as one of the most respected and hardest hitting journalists in America. Tackling issues from both sides of the aisle, live in prime time five nights a week, Kelly has embraced difficult questions - fearlessly pressing for answers as she redefines the face of news for her more than two million nightly viewers.
Now, in her debut book, Kelly goes behind the scenes of the stories and the storms that have made her one of the most talked about public figures in America. From growing up in a tough-love family where she had to earn her praise to her father's sudden, tragic death while she was still in high school to the news stories that launched her journalism career, Kelly traces the values and experiences - both good and bad - that landed her in the anchor chair.
With the same bold and brave voice that has won her fans across the political divide, she opens up about the controversy that made her a household name, telling her side of Donald Trump's feud with her while sharing never-before-heard details about the infamous first Republican debate, its challenging aftermath, and how she persevered through it all, winning widespread admiration while maintaining her professionalism. Speaking candidly about the career-changing decision that led her to "settle for more" - a motto she credits with leading her to a better life at home and at work - Kelly also discusses how she approaches gender in the workplace, demonstrating how her success is rooted in Steve Martin's old adage: "Be so good they can't ignore you."
Throughout her meteoric career, Megyn Kelly has been a source of fascination and speculation. Men and women, Republicans and Democrats, viewers of Fox News and the network's most diehard detractors have all sought to understand what she stands for and what matters to her. With this deeply personal account of her life, she answers critics and fans alike. At once humorous, uplifting, and revealing, Settle for More offers unparalleled insight into one of the most charismatic and intriguing television personalities in a generation and will be one of the most talked about books from an influential voice unlike any other.

It takes audacity for anyone under age 65...

...to write a memoir and expect other people to find it interesting. Nevertheless, for several reasons I pre-ordered Megyn Kelly's Settle For More. The reasons include the fact that in my opinion she is one of the two best political interviewers in the US today (the other being Chris Wallace). The second reason is I wanted to read her perspective of the months of intensive and relentless, even life threatening, attacks by Donald Trump and a few of his followers on Kelly after she asked a perfectly reasonable question during the first Republican primary debate. Third, I wanted to know more about the sexual harassment of media mogul Roger Ailes and its impact on her and other young women. Finally, I have two wonderful and successful daughters who have been the lights of my life for well over 40 years and who are very near Megyn Kelly's age (they and my wonderful son, and of course their equally wonderful spouses, have also provided me with six grandchildren who continue to light up my life).

This book does not disappoint in any way. I like it a lot and I respect Megyn Kelly even more. I cannot say I enjoyed it because of some of the things that she has gone through such as the loss in her early teens of her dad who she adored, the abuse by Trump and a few of his supporters, and the harassment by Ailes. Megyn Kelly is the type of woman/person who I most respect, strong and determined to live a normal life in a true partnership with the man she loves and the children they have parented. She is strongly moral. Yet she is anything but fragile. Her narration of the book she wrote is pitch perfect.

Tomorrow will be Kelly's 46th birthday. Happy birthday Megyn!! Keep on simply being you.
