"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the Back Cover
In the three years since her show The Kelly File premiered on the Fox News Channel, Megyn Kelly has cemented her reputation as one of the most respected, hardest-hitting journalists in America. Tackling issues from both sides of the aisle, live on prime time five nights a week, Megyn has embraced difficult questions and pressed for real answers, redefining the face of news for her more than two million regular viewers.
Now, in her debut book, Megyn goes behind the scenes of the stories and the storms that landed her in the anchor chair of the most successful news broadcast in cable news. Having grown up in a family whose values rejected the “trophies for everyone” mentality, Megyn traces the experiences that shaped her professional ascent—from her father’s sudden, tragic death while she was still in high school to the events that propelled her rise in journalism.
Speaking candidly about her decision to “settle for more”—a motto she credits as having dramatically transformed her life at home and at work—Megyn discusses how she abandoned a thriving legal career to follow her dream in the news business. Through her unique blend of hard work, humor, and authenticity, she has won fans across the political divide.
Megyn also opens up about the controversy that made her, unwillingly, one of America’s most-talked-about public figures, giving her side of Donald Trump’s feud with her while sharing never-before-heard details about the first Republican debate and how she was able to persevere through the difficult aftermath. In addition, Megyn sheds light on the challenges she has faced as a professional woman and working mother, revealing her approach to issues of gender in the workplace, as well as how her success is rooted in the adage “Be so good they can’t ignore you.”What emerges is a deeply personal and surprising account of her life, one that inspires men and women, young and old, Republicans and Democrats, to embrace the values of determination, honesty, and courage in the face of fear. At once funny and uplifting, Settle for More offers unparalleled insight into one of the most charismatic and intriguing television personalities of her generation.

Men do not realize that women are still fighting for equality and respect in the business world because they have not, and probably will not be challenged in the same way woman are today and in the past. Men quite often say, I just don't understand woman. Well men, this book will give you the opportunity to start catching on. This book should be in the self help section.
I suggest her next book be a compilation of short stories from other woman that also faced their demons head on and, also achieved their goals wearing their scars proudly.
Thank you for being the brave woman you are and making a stand for yourself and women in general. This is the way you "get it done", not just in business but in your family life too.
As the president of a business, I had to terminate a person for this sexual harassment problem. Settle for More deals with this issue well. We all can learn a ton about people and their behavior in groups. In fact, this study of humans in groups was one of the favorite subjects in my MBA studies.
The early death of Megyn's dad rang a bell for me. My wife's dad died when she was a freshman in college, leaving four children in a tough financial bind. Megyn's humble beginnings add to the candor of her content.
Megyn's Trump history is another example of Trump being a bully. My view, some of the dings on her book are from blind Trump fans. She covered this issue well in her book.
My take: Great book!
