In the wake of Gretchen Carlson's lawsuit against former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, her memoir of her time at Fox--working alongside Megyn Kelly, Bill O'Reilly, Steve Doocy, and other prominent conservative news personalities--is more relevant than ever.

In this candid memoir, celebrity news anchorwoman Gretchen Carlson shares her inspiring story and offers important takeaways about what it means to strive for and find success in the real world. With warmth and wit, she takes readers from her Minnesota childhood, when she became a violin prodigy, through attending Stanford and later rising to anchor of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on Fox News after working her way up from local television stations.

Carlson addresses the intense competitive effort of winning the Miss America Pageant, the challenges she's faced as a woman in broadcast television, and how she manages to balance work and family as the wife of high-profile sports agent Casey Close and devoted mother to their two children. An unceasing advocate for respect and equality for women, Carlson writes openly about her own struggles with body image, pageant stereotypes, building her career, and having the courage to speak her mind. Encouraging women to believe in themselves, chase their dreams, and never give up, Carlson emerges in Getting Real as a living example of personal strength and perseverance.

gretchen told a really truthful account of climbing to the top. I am so appreciative that she told about the sexual harassment that she unfortunately experienced. I and many others have experienced the same and worse but have not had a way to communicate other than to our girlfriends. Men are not even aware of what women have to be aware of and situations we have to avoid. Thank you Gretchen for telling women is it not our fault that these things happen.
