Tarbell epitomizes the achieving women who is not a feminist.
With her lithe, sympathetic, factual book, Brady helps us
understand how that can be. A bitter lesson; but it keeps your eyes
open; also your heart. --Susan Dworkin, Ms. magazine
"Kathleen Brady brings to life the personality of Ida Tarbell,
queen of the muckrakers, who was one of the first women to break
the gender gap in American journalism. . . . [An] eminently
balanced biography." --New York Times
