Doesn't Pull Any Punches
I really enjoyed this. It sounds like a wonderful conversation with a very interesting man who gives you the inside view. But also he is not afraid to criticise journalists where he feels they are overmighty. Very well written, very well read.

Fascinating, engaging book
Andrew Marr offers an excellent insight into the world of journalism, notably political journalism, both assessing the print press and the BBC/broadcast journalism, interspersing his narrative with entertaining anecdotes and witticisms. Now over a decade old, this book offers a snapshot into the trade as it was prior to the rapid escalation of digital media and instant/24 hour news. Nevertheless it's assessment of journalism as a trade and the problems it faces is continually relevant today.
