Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pelley’s tenure has been marked by his intelligent, truth-seeking approach to the news, pulling no punches while still remaining impartial.” Washington Post, praise for the author
“A TV newsman confronts war, terror, economic collapse, and presidential deceit in this tumultuous memoir…Pelley’s narratives are a riveting blend of investigative reporting, color commentary, and personal reminiscence; they make a convincing case for why journalism still matters.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A passionate defense of the role of journalism in maintaining democracy…In an era when journalism and journalists are under attack, this is a reminder of the power of story to recognize the best in each of us and society.” Library Journal
“Cognizant of the current state of distrust of the media, veteran newsman Pelley focuses on universal human traits as he examines the essential role of journalists to hold a mirror to our better angels and, at times, worst enemies…It is in his advice to young journalists that Pelley’s wisdom shines brightest, for he is a fervent advocate of the honor and necessity of a free and intrepid press.” Booklist
“Piercing tributes to values and those who embody them mixed with crisp, detailed accounts of reporting in highly hazardous locations.” Kirkus Reviews
