Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When America lost its most popular radio personality, Paul Harvey, in February 2009, millions of people mourned the man who had brightened their lives with news, storytelling, and commentary for more than 57 years. Now, New York Times best-selling biographer Stephen Mansfield and coauthor David Holland offer, as Harvey himself would say, the rest of the story. In Paul Harvey's America, they bring you the definitive biography of this icon of broadcasting history-his humble origins; his early fascination with the newfangled thing called radio; how his relationship with God shaped his life and career; his marriage to the love of his life, who he always called Angel; and his immeasurable contributions to American broadcasting and culture. Includes a foreword by Dan Rather.

Synopsis:

2009 Retailer's Choice Award winner In Paul Harvey's America, New York Times best selling biographer Stephen Mansfield and coauthor David A. Holland present a fascinating look at America's most popular radio host. You'll discover how the brutal murder of his father shaped Paul Harvey's life and career; how a high school teacher helped launch him in radio; the truth behind his brief and controversial career in the Air Force; why he was arrested for breaking into a secure research laboratory during the Cold War; why he proposed to his wife, Angel, on their very first date--and why it took her a year to say yes; the important role of faith in his life; and how his immeasurable contributions to broadcast history transformed American culture.
