What people are saying about Educated: A Memoir
“Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others.” — The New York Times Book Review
“Westover is a keen and honest guide to the difficulties of filial love, and to the enchantment of embracing a life of the mind.” – The New Yorker
“This one-of-a-kind memoir is about the shaping of a mind … In briskly paced prose, [Westover] evokes a childhood that completely defined her.” — The Atlantic
“An amazing story, and truly inspiring. The kind of book everyone will enjoy. It’s even better than you’ve heard.” – Bill Gates
“Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable. Her new book, Educated, is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life … Four stars out of four.” – USA Today
