'Gripping. Very few journalists can claim to have changed the world, but Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey did just that' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A much deeper story than the one that seized headlines. Cinematic, remarkable' GUARDIAN 'Superb reporting. Unputdownable non-fiction. A powerful book' RENI EDDO-LODGE `All the President's Men for the #MeToo era' WASHINGTON POST 'Required reading' OBSERVER `Seamless and suspenseful. A gripping blow-by-blow' NEW YORK TIMES 'Groundbreaking' STYLIST On 5 October 2017, the New York Times published an article by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey that helped change the world.

Hollywood was talking as never before. Kantor and Twohey outmanoeuvred Harvey Weinstein, his team of defenders and private investigators, convincing some of the most famous women in the world - and some unknown ones - to go on the record.

This is how they did it. ___________________________ For months ahead of the story breaking, Kantor and Twohey had been having confidential discussions with top actresses, former Weinstein employees and other sources, learning of disturbing, long-buried allegations. The journalists meticulously picked their way through a web of decades-old secret payouts and non-disclosure agreements, pressed some of the most famous women in the world - and some unknown ones - to risk going on the record, and faced down Weinstein, his team of high-priced defenders, and even his private investigators.

In She Said, Kantor and Twohey relive in real-time what it took to break the story and give an up-close portrait of the forces they were up against. They describe the experiences of the women who spoke up - for the sake of other women, for future generations, and for themselves.

Their stories have never been told in this way before.

Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey are prize-winning investigative reporters for the New York Times. For their exposure of sexual harassment and misconduct across industries, they were awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.


A seamless and suspenseful account of Kantor and Twohey's reportorial journey, a gripping blow-by-blow of how they managed to corroborate allegations that had been chased and abandoned by multiple journalists before them * New York Times * Captivating. The cumulative effect is almost cinematic, a sort of All the President's Men for the #MeToo era, except the men are women, and they don't protect the boss, they take him down * Washington Post * Required reading * Observer * She Said is first and foremost an account of incredible reporting. Kantor and Twohey show the background research they ran on sources, to protect both them and the paper, the careful way they documented and substantiated information, and their extraordinary precision in acquiring proof. We know how the story ends, but She Said is nonetheless deeply suspenseful, a kind of less swaggering All the President's Men * NPR * The groundbreaking new book that tells the true story of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. With plenty of unknown material and new discoveries, She Said serves as a testament to the importance of journalism and how facts can drive social change in an age of fake news * Stylist * For decades Hollywood has whispered about Harvey Weinstein. Journalists sniffed around, but none ever could - or, perhaps, would - bring one of the industry's darkest and longest-kept secrets to light. Until Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey delivered a chilling expose ... It sent shockwaves * Marie Claire * It's not often that you can pinpoint the beginning of such a momentous cultural shift, but in this case you can draw a pretty clear line to the stories by Meghan Twohey and Jodi Kantor * Glamour * I hope this book will go a long way to exonerating me and the other victims who've dealt with slander and mental assault for years now -- Rose McGowan I can't put it down. The ins and outs of how they broke this story are riveting and the respect they show for their sources is beautiful -- Shonda Rimes
