But what sets this book apart is not only the unique front-row seat Mitchell has in the political world, but also the role she plays in the glamorous social scene in Washington. Her marriage to Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, has created professional challenges, but also given her special entree to the "A" list drawing rooms of Washington and other capitals. Here she gives us glimpses of what it's like to go from a 7 p.m. newscast to an 8 p.m. black-tie party, to go from being the reporter staking out a state dinner to being one of the invited guests.
Smart and candidly written, Mitchell's memoir will be a must read for anyone interested in politics and current affairs and will also fascinate anyone who wonders what it's like to be a powerful woman in a man's world.
