Publisher's Summary

This memoir by Dan Rather - one of the most pre-eminent journalists of our time - is told in a straightforward and conversational manner. Rather, - who has won every prestigious journalism award in his distinguished career - discusses all the big stories from his decades of reporting. This very personal accounting includes (but is certainly not limited to) his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan", as well as inside stories about all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career.
Also included are Dan's thoughts and reflections on the state of journalism today and what he sees for its future, as well as never-before-revealed personal observations and commentary.

The voice of truth - Great book

I will say this for every audiobook: When you listen to a biography that is read by the person the book is about, you cannot help enjoying it. In this case this is a well written, well read, story, As a US expat, I and most Americans looked to Dan Rather for the truth about the goings on in America. His is a heartbreaking story with a happy ending. I highly recommend it even if you are not that familiar with who Dan is.
