Summary
This memoir by the author, one of the most pre-eminent journalists of our time, is told in a straightforward and conversational manner; you hear his distinctive voice on every page. He has won every prestigious journalism award in his distinguished career, and discusses all the big stories from his decades of reporting. This very personal accounting includes (but is certainly not limited to) his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan" as well as inside stories about all the top personalities he has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career. The book also includea his thoughts and reflections on the state of journalism today and what he sees for its future, as well as never-before-revealed personal observations and commentary
