Mike Miller, in a devastatingly candid look back over a twenty-five year career in radio, television, and politics, tells it as it is! Miller deals with such issues as sex, alcohol, and drug use in newsrooms and on Capitol Hill. He also explains how he overcame crippling polio and a lifetime of severe depression and alcohol abuse.
His story begins at a radio station in Tulsa and continues through his first experience in television, and one assignment that even took him to Vietnam. Competitors landed him a job in Washington, D.C. and soon Miller found himself working with young journalists on their way up, including Bob Schieffer, Connie Chung, and Maury Povich.
When he got into politics, and nearly went to work for Bill Clinton, things really got crazy! How High is required reading for everyone interested in politics and the news media.
Although it may shock you, it will make you laugh!

Best book ever on TV News/Politics! 'How High Can a Guy Stoop?' is a terrific memoir that reveals author's career as a radio DJ, news reporter, TV photographer/correspondent, anchor, and news director. Mike Miller also moved into politics as a press secretary for three members of congress. While he doesn't spout philosophy, he does reveal many very funny episodes in both careers. Unlike many books on TV News, this one perhaps provides a most realistic view behind the scenes. I found it riveting and very well written.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
