"[Rough Draft] is so good... so heroic."
- Nicole Wallace, MSNBC host of Deadline: White House
"Heart-wrenching...Deeply layered."
- Daily Mail
"It's a hell of a story."
-- New York Times Book Review

"A stunning and revelatory memoir."
--Oprah Daily
"I don't think I've ever read an account as personal... I really think people are going to love reading this book: for journalism, for life, for families."
--Trevor Noah, The Daily Show
"Super raw and fascinating. The story Katy Tur tells in Rough Draft is so unusual but also resonant to anyone with a family."
--Kara Swisher
"More provocative than Tur's first book... a vivid account of how one woman's inheritance propelled her from a tumultuous childhood to a high-profile perch in television journalism."
--The Washington Post
"If you love the kind of true stories that make you say 'omg, how is this real, ' look no further."
--The Skimm
"She goes all the way there... I see a movie here."
- Gayle King, host of CBS Mornings
"If journalism is the 'first rough draft of history' then Tur's memoir is a stunning reminder that journalists are not only providing us with the draft, they are living its revision alongside us."
--Brooklyn Daily Eagle
