Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This memoir by Dan Rather is told in a straightforward and conversational voice, and covers all the important moments of his journalistic career, including a frank accounting of his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, new insights on the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan" as well as inside stories about all the U.S. Presidents he covered and all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his distinguished career.

The book will also include Dan's thoughts on the state of journalism today and what he sees for its future, as well as never-before-revealed personal observations and commentary.

Review:

"This memoir from legendary newsman Dan Rather charts the course of his career — highlighting the highs, the lows, and the controversy — his dismissal from CBS, and the biggest stories he covered (from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the atrocities of Abu Ghraib) during his many decades in the news business. Much as he did during his years behind the news desk, Rather turns in a professional and compelling performance. His narration is sonorous, clear, and smooth, his voice trustworthy and tinged with the soft remnants of his Texas accent. In this audio edition, he offers up a reading that is straightforward and personal. Listeners who grew up getting their nightly news from Rather will likely find this a familiar and even comforting listen. A Grand Central hardcover."
