4.25 stars! First, I should disclose I'm a big fan of Anderson Cooper so this may not be a totally unbiased review. I didn't quite know what to expect from this memoir. Well, maybe I expected to get more of a "clinically journalistic" view of his correspondant experiences and perhaps some ego. I did not get either. And what I did not expect, however was for Anderson to be so open and raw with his emotions. We still get the correspondant's experiences but Cooper uses the emotional fingers of his past tragedies to touch touch the hands and heart of current events. Kudos Mr. Cooper, on showing us your vulnerability
This book is written on such a personal level that one starts to feel they know the 'real' Anderson Cooper. I cried when I finished the book and spent the entire day missing having it to read. Absolutely beautiful in its portrayals of everyday people living in crisis, it encourages the reader to do soul-searching of their own. Read it, share it and read it again.
Half autobiography, half history book, Cooper's story is the story of his journey as a reporter and his memories of the wars/disasters he covered. Written in his voice and filled with his thoughts as a reporter and, more importantly, his thoughts as a man in the modern world. A fast read and very engrossing.
The book gives alot of insight about a life that is unknown to the public about anderson cooper. He explains how he got to where he is now from start to present, he inculdes descriptions, events and thoughts about serious incidents that have impacted him and the world. The book is a great read for eveeryone, it gives morals and understandings that are told in our society. GREAT BOOK!
Anderson Cooper certainly portrays the world in a raw and yet sensitive way. He has seen the worst and yet has a need to keep reporting (without clouding), the story. I had a difficult time putting the book down - my heart was touched by his candid views. It made me realize that being a person of "priviledge" does not guarantee you an easy time.
