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.

Great career & personal advice!
Whether you are a Megyn Kelly fan or not, this is great advice for those just getting started in life after college, or maybe even those looking toward a new journey or chapter in their life. Sound advice for a positive outlook on life, focusing on serving others wherever you are, or standing up for everyone's voice whether your opinions match or not. Settling for Something More out of ourselves & those around us, expecting our personal best & striving to teach by example are more essential values in our world now more than ever! Whining is NEVER a good look for anyone.
Go Megyn! Definitely passing this onto all 5 of my college age children. So happy to see strong & positive examples for my boys as well as my girls. LOVED your take & definitions of being a feminist! I'm right there with you Sista-Friend!

Interesting insight into a strong willed lady
This was the first book I listened to on audible and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
it was great to hear her childhood stories and hear how she used her gut and will and determination to get to where she is now in life. Very inspiring. It was also interesting to hear all the drama regarding Trump. Good listening

Honest, engaging and impressive
What did you like most about Settle for More?
She details her hard-working rise in two successful careers and her personal life with candour. Neither boastful or overly self-depricating she comes across as both a warm and a tough person. I'm not a fan of Fox news but I am a fan of this journalist. I like how she stands up for for herself and others, and her 'pay it back' philosophy. Mostly her account feels fair and true, and she is funny with it.
What did you like best about this story?
Her account of her family and her early career path.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Where she changes career from lawyer to journalist
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
You don't have to be crazy...well...
Any additional comments?
Listening to this book I found myself nodding with approval at times. I also laughed out loud. She comes across as a decent human being, one you wouldn't want to mess with. I liked her, basically.
