I had already read "Catch and Kill" by Ronan Farrow which was stunning and I highly recommend. I wanted to read this to get detail on how Christine Blasey Ford decided to testify against Brett Kavanaugh, she was trying to do the right thing and got death threats and had to hire her own security team. I hope she is able to live in her own home right now and go to the store without being harassed.
I want to give thanks to these authors and the survivors for getting the story out and Weinstein in jail.

Kantor and Twohey are two of the reporters who majorly broke open the Harvey Weinstein story, after years of open secrets, settlements tied to non-disclosure agreements, and intimidation from Weinstein and his protectors. They also did a lot of the major reporting on Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, and they meticulously track their reporting process in both cases. It’s a gripping book, that despite dealing with extremely heavy material felt almost soothing? That feels weird to say, but it felt similar to me to reading The Martian, in that the book is set up around a series of problem-solving, and it was fascinating to watch them steadily approach a really complex issue with the amount of compassion they had for the survivors. But goddamn, it really is disheartening how many systems have long been in place (and for the most part still are) to allow and cover-up sexual assault, and Twohey and Kantor do a great job at explaining those systems and how they relate to the individual cases they’re reporting.

I could not put this book down! The account of how these two journalists, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, broke the story of Harvey Weinstein's long history of abusive behavior is powerful and at times gut-wrenching. They champion not only victims' rights, but also the importance of journalism in holding powerful people accountable for their actions.

Excellent story of investigative journalism by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of the New York Times; delves into the methods used by sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein to keep his victims silent and afraid to report his crimes against them. A riveting read!

This is a book that will mark this point in time by the Weinstein investigations. It was not a compelling book or overly interesting in its reporting. Just a detailed and lengthy collection of data. Important, nevertheless.

This is an important work that should be required reading
for individuals (female and male) ,and institutions: law , journalism
Medical and business schools.
Easy to read; frustrating to understand.
Harvey Weinstein is the proverbial rot from the fish’s head.
Telling - since the story first broke 80 other women have come forward with their own stories.
The excellence in this accounting is an acknowledgment of how fast the# MeToo movement has travelled..some protesting it has not gone far enough while others -too far.
Still today the journalists acknowledge that there is a lack of process or too few clear rules.
Finally, that without such laborious and expensive journalistic attention....the voices of sexual assault victims would not be heard.
