29 of 30 people found the following review helpful By Norma Lehmeierhartie on May 6 2008
Format: Hardcover
At nine o'clock this morning, I arrived at Barnes and Noble, picked up Audition and sat down to read with a cup of coffee. I read for hours, bought the book and continued reading at home.

At over 600 pages, this book cannot be read in a day. However, I have read enough to report that the book is magnificent; extremely well- written, very pleasurable to read and absolutely fascinating.

Thankfully, there is also a detailed index. I found myself eying the index and flipping through to certain sections. I enjoyed reading about Walters' experience with the application form and other details at my alma mater, Sarah Lawrence College.

Open this book and on the inside jacket is a listing of the hundreds (thousands?) of people who Barbara Walters has interviewed and knows. It's pretty staggering, actually.

Born September 25, 1929, Barbara Walters has led an extraordinary life. Walters was first known as a TV morning news anchor and became the first female evening news anchor and many of us know her as the interviewer who can make anyone cry. Walters has spent decades reporting the news and interviewing, extracting juicy details and information out of world leaders, celebrities, heads of state and other VIP's.

In Audition, we get to learn about Walter's personal and professional life and her relationships with many of the most famous people in the world.

In the prologue, Walters states: "It feels to me that my life has been one long audition--an attempt to make a difference and to be accepted."

I was quite moved by her introduction and her feelings about her mentally challenged older sister, Jackie.

Well written considering the diversity of content over a vast span of time. Barbara Walters graciously shares her human side - her doubts and fears and triumphs.

Very interesting life. An amazing woman blazed a trail for other women. Well written, I could hear Barbara's voice as I read.

As a retired broadcaster, I do suggest this book for anyone who is or has been involved with the tv media. A reminder as to why I retired so young (48) and intrigued why Barbara is still involved...
