From Library Journal:

This popular biography of the Philippines president traces her transformation from a shadowy partner of her martyred husband into a forceful and charismatic leader in her own right. Komisar, a journalist with experience in the Philippines, provides an engrossing account of Cory Aquino's political battles during her first year in office. But her story is long on personal and often trivial detail and short on interpretation. The fundamental problems faced by the Philippines are presented superficially and one gets little sense of whether Aquino has the will to address them. Komisar's attempt to be comprehensive and up-to-date produces a largely shapeless book that unfolds like an endless newspaper article.Steven I.
