For more than forty years, Katie Couric has been an iconic presence in the media world  This novel has laugh out loud moments and the short chapters race by.  It’s also a trip through our recent history from the sixties to the present and she was mostly at the heart of each event.  I for one learned a lot about the inside world of media rife with sexism and misogyny from someone who seemed to want to share it all. Funny and heartbreaking.

“Fast-paced and riveting, Going There is an intimate memoir that chronicles the once magical world of TV news.  Every young woman should read this book to understand what ambition really feels like and the work it takes to fulfill it.”―Tina Brown

“The secret to Katie Couric’s success is that there are no secrets. While the dogged determination she has called upon her whole life is  an invaluable asset, there are other ingredients in Katie’s not-so-secret sauce: humor, concern, sincerity, steadfastness, and devotion to her daughters, family, and friends. If Katie is “going there,” no matter where “there” is, we’re along for the ride.”―Michael J. Fox, bestselling author of No Time Like the Future

“Longtime ‘Today’ co-anchor Couric, once known as ‘America’s Sweetheart,’ shows that she’s really ‘America’s Role Model’ in a frank, funny memoir about her journey from Arlington, Va., high school cheerleader to a leading voice for cancer research as well as first-rank investigative journalist. Some superstar books can be skipped; this one shouldn’t be.”―Bethanne Patrick, The Washington Post
