Publishers Weekly, 2012-06-25 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. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Publishers Weekly, 2012-04-16 Anchor of the CBS Evening News for 24 years, much-honored newsman Rather has been a working reporter for 64 years. He began his series of memoirs with The Camera Never Blinks (1977), a bestseller spanning his life from journalism study at Sam Houston State Teachers College to Watergate. He followed with I Remember (1991), recalling his Texas childhood, and The Camera Never Blinks Twice (1994) about TV journalism on location from Afghanistan to Vietnam. In this latest update to the series, his straight-arrow honesty is punctuated with occasional humor: "It was long said of me that I had the CBS Eye tattooed somewhere on my ass." For a blistering opening chapter, he details the "absence of executive backbone" during CBS News' investigation of Abu Ghraib: "The possibility that the financial and political interests of CBS corporate almost buried a story as compelling as Abu Ghraib was most unsettling." He's equally outspoken on the "journalistic meltdown" when CBS News was ordered to drop its investigation into Bush's experience with the Texas Air National Guard. Throughout the book, he delivers strong punches at those who stood in his way, but he also has much praise for the co-workers who joined him in his quest for the truth. With his usual conversational writing style, he maintains a personal connection with his readers in this riveting and revelatory autobiography that can also serve as a valuable textbook for anyone studying journalism.
