All over the board. The really does an injustice to what really happened there. These great men deserve an author that takes the time to research the individuals and provide perspective based on their personalities.

Similar to E-Hilton...feels like too much copy and paste. Not a welll laid out book. A poor tribute to those involved. I can't wait for a better version to come out by an authority on the subject.

It's a very good story, but equally poorly written. The author has taken a larger number of other books, including ones by Andy Rooney, Walter Cronkite, and other "stars" of this book, and basically cut-n-pasted into a new book. The prologue is 42 pages long and contains 91 footnotes, and that's typical of the following chapters. It does not read smoothly, it jumps around too much. When I finish this I'm going to buy Andy Rooney's book and read it, I think it will be more enjoyable. The only upside to this book is that you get a glimpse of the exploits of several correspondents in one reading.

If you grew up during the 50s, 60s, or 70s this is a must read book. Very informative and interesting.
