Rate this:
For more than twenty years Katharine Graham was a self-described "doormat wife." But after her husband s suicide, she took over as publisher and CEO of The Washington Post and shocked the male executives who bet against her success. She defied the government by publishing the Pentagon Papers , took on the president in the Watergate investigation, and stood down a violent labor strike. Through every challenge she stuck by her values, building a diverse, profitable, and much-admired company. Graham s bestselling memoir Personal History gave readers this great woman s intimate view of her own story. Now, Robin Gerber focuses on the heart of Graham s success- her leadership. Gerber shows how Graham overcame an emotionally impoverished childhood, deep insecurities, and a marriage to a brilliant but mentally ill husband.
