Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts presents her life story as a sort of Pilgrim’s Progress, as she learns important lessons in each stage that prepare her for her next advance. She discusses her upbringing as a member of a tightly knit African-American family in Mississippi of the 1960s, and how her athletic talent, brains and common sense helped her transcend the racism of her small community. She frankly reveals her enormous drive to make a name for herself in national sports broadcasting. Roberts’ advice is straightforward and grounded in experience, if a tad clichéd. getAbstract recommends this short book to people who want to rise in their professions for the glimpse it provides into the life of this sincere and charming journalist.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Robin Roberts rose through sports and broadcast journalism to become co-anchor of Good Morning America; and
- What principles support her success.
