Truly the conversation continues
I picked up the book after seeing Bill Moyers's interview on The Daily Show. The book was different from what I expected in a good way. For some reason, I thought it would be a collection of his impressions of the various interviews he conducted during his long career. Instead, he lets his subjects express their thoughts and feelings as they are without filtering through his own perception or judgment. It's almost akin to reading the interview transcripts, but they are all fascinating. The people in this book are from wide-ranging fields - entertainment to academia to politics. Immensely enjoyable to read.

Thoughtful and Relevant
I had not previously read anything from Bill Moyers, but have been a long-time admirer of his work. Living overseas, I did not have the opportunity to watch the interviews captured in this book, but I found them insightful and useful to introduce me to people I had not heard of, or didn't know well.Was this review helpful?

A bright light in journalism, which shines even brighter now compared to the dismal product flung at us every day now, dumbed-down for competitive or ideological reasons.
