Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is staggering to think of how many important historical and cultural figures Wallace has interviewed over the course of his legendary career.& nbsp; With great humor and insight, he recalls his encounters with such luminaries as Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Yassir Arafat, Frank Lloyd Wright, Salvador Dali, Barbara Streisand, Tina Turner, and all the presidents of the last half-century.& nbsp; From his early days, Wallace displayed a no-holds-barred interviewing technique that distinguished him from his colleagues and earned him many accolades ??? but also often got him in hot water with his subjects and with his corporate bosses.& nbsp; In this remarkable book, he reveals the story behind the story: what happened off camera before, during, and after his most famous interviews.

Synopsis:

Mike Wallace. His very name conjures up a certain kind of journalism--smart, informed, intense, and groundbreaking. Who else has wrangled sit-downs with his roster of world leaders and criminals, celebrities, and underdogs, heroes and scoundrels?

Organized by interview subject--including Presidents, Icons and Artists, Con Men and Other Crooks, The General and the Whistle-Blower--Between You and Me, now in paperback, is his wry, candid, and revealing look back at sixty years in an unparalleled career.
