Ellerbee's anecdotal stories of when she worked at NBC news in the 80s. Much of the book is very funny and it's definitely entertaining, but it also shows the beginning of the end of *real* news programs. Read full review

Linda Ellerbee & Lloyd Dobyns "NBC News Overnight" cost me more sleep!! The best television EVER - and I think they won some awards that said just exactly that!!! So disappointing to not be able to watch that any longer. Loved the book - she's an unusual gal. Read in 2005. Read full review
