THE RULEBREAKER The Life and Times of Barbara Walters

by | Read by Susan Page

Biography & Memoir • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Susan Page's narration of this absorbing biography of television legend Barbara Walters is authoritative but somehow intimate, just as the biography is both clear-eyed and sympathetic. There's no denying Walters's burning ambition, which drove her to steal interviewees such as Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton from her colleagues. But in her later years, as ABC cut back her on-air time and eventually even took her off THE VIEW, which she had helped create, she was devastated and spent her last years in seclusion. Page is a wonderful guide through Walters's rise in an industry that had no female "talent" until she came along. All this makes THE RULEBREAKER not just a good listen, but an important audiobook.
