Staff Picks: Guilty Pleasure: Miss Walters' New Book

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 8:21 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

OK, I know this is getting quite a bit of media attention already, but I'm going to add to it here and now regardless.
This past weekend, our sister company, Harry W. Schwartz Bookstores brought Barbara Walters in for a signing/interview session at Alverno College . So, I got to meet with and help Miss Walters during the event for her new book Audition and I found her to be quite a remarkable woman! In person she is quite small in stature, razor thin and very nice. It's hard to believe when I saw her that this was the woman that helped alter the way news was done. A pioneer in broadcasting, Miss Walters changed the 'old boys club' by not only doing what they did, but assured the places for women that would come after her, as well.
Well, that's the shameless plug.... I have a copy of the book and just think that everyone should too! That's about it - oh, and Happy June (finally)!!
