Really Great Read!3 October 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book after seeing the move "The Post". I wanted to know more about Katherine Graham. This author really took the time to research and explore the history behind the many people involved in the evolution of the Washington Post. This is an easy read and is full of interesting historical memorabilia of people. It is extremely well documented. I am glad I bought the book and would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the subject.

Phil and Kay - wapo owners27 March 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Power, Privilege and the Post terminates in 1992 with entirely too much detail about recent events then, however exploring Phil's and Kay's families, and the couple's separate approaches to owning the Post moves quickly. I found the early part of the book fascinating but my eyes glazed over reading the last part. If Phil hadn't dramatically taken himself out of the picture, the Post wouldn't have gotten the magnificent stewardship provided by Katharine. It is of an era - no Internet or blogs and only primitive personal computers.

Events, such as the Watergate issue helped build the national and international reputation of the Post. Mrs. Graham,fortunately, had ready access to a number of various experts to help in her management of the paper;

It took me a couple years to complete it. It's interesting historically but dry and 20% of the book is bibliography. I thought it interesting that David Broder was never mentioned.
Worth your time16 August 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
I'm reading this for a book club selection. Much more interesting than I expected. Well-written, in parts a bit slow-going, but overall well-researched and good biography of a powerful woman.
