    " Helen can be annoying, and it could have been much better, but it does give one a taste of what it is to be a White House correspondent. "

    " Interesting stories, but no compelling narrative to keep me reading the whole thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 5/17/2012

    " My autographed copy says "Good luck on your career in journalism." While I traded a career in journalism for one in law, Helen Thomas is still my idol! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 5/2/2009

    " Have always respected Helen Thomas - was interesting to read things from her perspective. Like her even more now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/7/2009

    " I felt like the book told a lot of what she saw, but not enough of who she is. That being said, I did learn a lot and really enjoyed Helen's stories of her amazing career. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Victoria | 5/21/2008

    " I give up. I've suffered through 182 pages if this rambling pointless monologue and I'm beat. The 5 pages on Air Force One food did me in. Helen Thomas is a great reporter, but she is no writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linz | 7/1/2007

    " I loved Personal History so much that my judgment on this is probably skewed, but I wasn't impressed with this. It's more self-serving and name-dropping than revealing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naina | 2/25/2007

    " As much as I love Helen Thomas, I can't believe how poorly written this book is. She has incredible memories but this book is scattered and disjointed. Not worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lotte | 12/11/2006

    " Thomas shares many interesting and compelling anecdotes and insight in this book. The surprisingly poor organization and writing nearly caused me stop reading it. Think twice about how much time you have to invest in reading before you start this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/15/2006

    " Interesting read if you're interested in American presidents, even though Thomas appears to be a bit full of herself sometimes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diabardo | 10/16/2004

    " super juicy read - what a great role-model for all women "

    " Tid bits of stories about the last 9 presidents. Written by a white house press journalist. I loved the history and commentary provided by Helen Thomas. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Desireé Reese | 4/25/2001

    " I gave up as it was sooooo slow and came across as unorganized "
