This book was mostly interesting and not that enjoyable to read. The author shared lots of interesting facts and thoughts about her famous parents’ lives. However, I am left frustrated in knowing all that she certainly left out. She wrote this as a scientist and/or anthropologist would, not clearly and openly sharing her feelings about them. So, the reader is left guessing about many issues. ( )

No other book about the legendary anthropologists Margaret Mead and
Gregory Bateson matches the depth and intimacy of this memoir by their daughter.
An anthropologist herself, Ms. Bateson recounts her progressive childhood;
reveals for the first time her mother’s lifelong love for her mentor, Ruth
Benedict; and sheds new light on her parents’ ground-breaking research. With A
Daughter’s Eye is the candid, deeply moving story of an extraordinary family by
the only person who could have written it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060975733, Paperback)

In With a Daughter's Eye, writer and cultural anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson looks back on her extraordinary childhood with two of the world's legendary anthropologists, Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. This deeply human and illuminating portrait sheds new light on her parents' prodigious achievements and stands alone as an important contribution for scholars of Mead and Bateson. But for readers everywhere, this engaging, poignant, and powerful book is first and foremost a singularly candid memoir of a unique family by the only person who could have written it.
