Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fast-written, rat-a-tat-tat memoir."-Chicago Sun Times

"Jack Newfield is an old-fashioned newspaperman, skeptical, passionate, and brave. He really tells it in Somebody's Gotta Tell It-an absorbing and appealing memoir of a life committed to honest politics, honest sport, and honest journalism."-Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

"Newfield has made it his life's mission to uncover and share significant truths about important people and events. No one has done the work better, nor described it as well as he has in this brilliant and engaging memoir. This book is a great telling of American history-music, culture, sports, and civil rights."-Mario Cuomo

"We count our blessings in having memorable crusaders for social justice who do not let their zeal override their commitment to professional integrity. In the golden company of Lincoln Steffens and Heywood Broun, let's welcome Jack Newfield. He writes with the sharp eye of the trained observer and the engaged heart of the humanist."-Budd Schulberg

"In a time when American journalism is getting its shares of slings and arrows, Jack Newfield stands out as a national treasure. I can't think of anyone among us today, as this book amply demonstrates, who brings a more passionate commitment to his craft."-Peter Maas

"He does not stop. He is the loudest liberal voice in a time of timid whispers. Always, Newfield's hands plunge into the muck, to pull out the truth. This fine memoir shows how much Newfield has seen, and been involved in, of what happened in our nation. And he tells it to us in the swift sentences of one who knows what he is writing about."-Jimmy Breslin

"Enthralling, moving, and sometimes poignant, this book is a must for anyone who cares about the cutting edge of our times."-Richard North Patterson
