Did you already know Linda Ellerbee was smart and funny? No? What an enjoyable read for you because this book's content will take you by surprise. Let's all make a wish that now that Linda's retired from TV, she'll write more books. I'm looking forward to an entire shelf on nothing but Ellerbee. Thanks, Linda; there are never enough good books and yours are the best.

Linda Ellerbee has lived a fascinating and not-always-easy life, and in this book she examines and recounts it in well-chosen words. It's a particularly interesting view into the world of television news.

I only wish TV would bring her back!

I've enjoyed reading Linda Ellerbee's columns for many years. This book, however, was somewhat of a disappointment as her essays seemed "disjointed" and it was difficult to stay interested.

Not as completely entertaining as Ellerbee's prior book "And So it Goes," which focused on her career in broadcast journalism, this follow-up is a collection of unrelated tales from her life - each opening a window onto a different phase of it. I prefered Ellerbee's first (and funnier) book, but two tales from this volume are brilliant enough to give it a ratings bump.
Ellerbee's story of overcoming alcoholism at the Betty Ford Center is as real and honest as memoirs get. Entering the program with a witty cynicism (masking fragile fear), Ellerbee eventually surrenders to the therapeutic environment and is ultimately softened by it. It's just the kind of story you'd expect from an intelligent satirist who (at first) feels she's above the 12-stepping and soul searching, but finally recognizes it as the only way to heal and become whole.
My favorite chapter, though, is the smart and funny tale of young Linda's first summer job, "We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to You." Linda spends her summer working at a resort owned by a friend of her father. After several weeks of mingling with the other young workers - one of whom is a radical looking to unionize - Linda learns valuable life lessons and eventually "sticks it to the man," her boss. In the end, the tale (and the title) becomes a metaphor for prejudice and stereotyping. This story alone is worth the cost of the book. Buy "Move On," read this chapter, then make photocopies of the chapter for your friends... it's the kind of thing you'll want to share.

Linda Ellerbee goes on and shows us more of her life. We learn of her friends, her life, and how these shaped her into the woman we've enjoyed for years on Overnight and telling us the real story where others just tell us what they want us to know.
What can you say about Linda Ellerbee that hasn't already been said before? She's the Queen of a well-turned phrase and has such a clever wit in her writing. Love, love, love her!!
