I opened this book looking forward to plenty of useful facts, good organization, and maybe even engaging writing.

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed on all accounts.

This is unfortunate, because The Trouble is Not in Your Set is a a great title, and the book has excellent production values (kudos to the C.J. Krehbiel Company). Plus, both the author and the subject matter had great potential.

What the book ends up being is a disjointed romp through the author's personal history and the history of network television and that of a few of her heroes. But even though this book is an example of self-publishing gone bad, it does have some interesting nuggets of fact, and some entertaining anecdotes (the one about the bogus Cincinnati advertising agency cooked up by two bored copywriters almost--but not quite--makes up for the disjointed narrative). I'd say pick this up if you're a completist interested in broadcasting or Cincinnati history.

But I wish she hadn't co-opted the title ...
