Reviews

"Ms. Mapes details her rise and fall with a considerable amount of flair and self-deprecating humor...Simply put, she is woman, hear her roar--on behalf of both her instilled patriotism and her journalistic integrity....TRUTH AND DUTY is a good read from start to finish." --The Dallas Morning News "Mapes musters a controlled, readable narrative about the story that became her professional undoing...the story...builds by increments (including) the memos themselves, and how they mesh--in ways large and small, in nuance and substance--with Bush's official Guard records." --The Washington Post Book World "It's an illuminating look into journalism and the challenges reporters face in an era of blogging, instant Internet analysis, corporate ownership and network news starts." --The Buffalo News "In...TRUTH AND DUTY, [Mapes] comes across as the kind of rip-snorting rodeo rider of the news I would have killed to work with as an editor. Her gallop through such Mapes-produced '60 Minutes II' scoops as securing Karla Faye Tucker's death row interview or tracking down Strom Thurmond's black illegitimate daughter or exposing the atrocities of Abu Ghraib gives us a heart-racing glimpse of a resourceful TV pro in her fearless prime." --Tina Brown "TRUTH AND DUTY is a plainspoken...oftentimes sympathetic look at how the National Guard story came to be and why it fell apart." --The New York Observer
