From Publishers Weekly:

In a the brash, iconoclastic voice familiar to fans of her TV show Our World, Ellerbee delivers commentary on her life in this entertaining, often moving collection of essays. From her childhood in Texas to her start on radio in Alaska, on to network TV and then her own production company, she tells of the people and events that helped shape her career, including details of her move from ABC to CNN, for which she covered the "shallow" political conventions and the "no-hitter presidential campaign" of 1988. More interesting, however, are her wry views of a personal life that encompasses four marriages, two children, a stint in a commune in the early '70s, a much-loved alcoholic father and a session at the Betty Ford Clinic, all powerfully recounted here. Courage, intelligence and a dash of light, sure humor are the ingredients of Ellerbee's unsentimental observations of both a self and an era. First serial to People.

From Library Journal:

Television journalist Ellerbee says this book is not an autobiography. True, but it is autobiographical--a series of 14 essays about a comparatively young life of success, failure, alienation, love, cynicism, pathos, poignancy, alcoholism, four marriages, two children, jobs won and lost at five networks, and, yes, the fabled candor. Linda Jane never "did" life the easy way. As with her earlier best seller "And So It Goes": Adventures in Television ( LJ 5/1/86), she constantly dazzles the reader with her unpretentious and entertaining use of language, describing, for example, the 1988 presidential candidates as "two flat-footed men forever arguing over who had the most to be modest about." And Ellerbee bravely attempts a summation of life: "Most of all, I've learned that a good time to laugh is any time you can." Highly recommended.
