"A candid, funny memoir from the charismatic FOX News channel anchor and Miss America Pageant winner Celebrity news anchorwoman Gretchen Carlson shares her inspiring story and offers important takeaways for women (and men) about what it means to strive for and find success in the real world. With warmth and wit, she takes readers from her Minnesota childhood, where she became a violin prodigy, through college at Stanford and her in-the-trenches years as a cub reporter on local television stations before becoming a national news reporter. She describes her rise to anchor of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on FOX News channel as a testament to personal strength and perseverance. Carlson addresses the intense competitive effort of winning the Miss America Pageant, the challenges she's faced as a woman in broadcast television, and how she manages to balance work and family as the wife of high-profile sports agent Casey Close and devoted mother to their two children. An unceasing advocate for respect and equality for women, Carlson writes openly about her own struggles with body image, pageant stereotypes, building her career, and having the courage to speak her mind. She encourages women to strive for their goals, never give up, and always believe in themselves. In Getting Real, Carlson emerges as a living example of a woman not afraid to chase her dreams and embrace life fully"-- Provided by publisher.

gretchen told a really truthful account of climbing to the top. I am so appreciative that she told about the sexual harassment that she unfortunately experienced. I and many others have experienced the same and worse but have not had a way to communicate other than to our girlfriends. Men are not even aware of what women have to be aware of and situations we have to avoid. Thank you Gretchen for telling women is it not our fault that these things happen.
