"This book has it all: power, glamour, sex, war, and scandal. Cissy Patterson was a formidable figure in the American Century, and Amanda Smith has done a splendid job bringing the great newspaper publisher back to vivid life." -Jon Meacham
"Newspaper Titan is exemplary." -COLUMBIA JOURNALISM REVIEW
"Filled with more backstabbing, social climbing, and decadence than a season of Dynasty, Newspaper Titan is the story of canny Medill heiress Cissy Patterson, the 20th century's first major female editor in chief, whose personal life was a Whartonian saga of American entitlement colliding with dubious European aristocracy." -VOGUE.com
Called "perhaps the most powerful" and the "most hated" woman in America in the 1940s, Cissy's fascinating and curious life is examined here in detail. But this lengthy book is never boring, because its subject is such an outrageously flamboyant and historically significant figure. -SHELF-AWARENESS.COM
