Ronan Farrow is a giant slayer. His investigative reporting, combined with the brave testimony of women have helped topple giants like Harvey Weinstein, Les Mooves and Matt Lauer. This book is the story behind the story. It shows the lengths powerful men will go through to cover up their crimes. Farrow faced all manner of intimidation from spies following him and tracking his phone, to push back from his own bosses who were under Weinstein’s thumb. The work done to discredit Farrow and all the women who came forward to tell their stories is astounding. Farrow has an accessible writing style and he writes in a way that helps you walk in his shoes during this tumultuous time. An important book that shows what journalism at its best can do.
