"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."
