Overview

No TV reporter today is more respected than NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. She’s covered stories from Jonestown to the fall of the Berlin Wall, gotten unexpected answers from such interviewees as Fidel Castro and Hillary Clinton, and balanced her high-wire career with a very public marriage to former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Dr. Alan Greenspan. Mitchell’s candid, funny, and riveting memoir is filled with unprecedented behind-the-scenes views of the television news industry and official Washington. A classic of contemporary journalism by a woman who has taken on her profession’s entire old-boy network, Talking Back deserves a place on the shelf alongside the memoirs of Hillary Clinton and Katherine Graham.

    Not worth buying

    This book does not have substance. It is mostly filled with boring stories, not nearly as significant as she thinks they are. Sad to say, but even though we all have unique lives that seem extraordinary from *our* point of view, most are just boring for others. This is a case of that.

    Disappointingly Biased

    This memoir alternates between glowingly blinkered and spin-doctor snarky depending upon which political figure is being described, and, sadly, this book highlights everything that is wrong with modern journalism. One would hope that a more fair and balanced retelling of historical events had been forthcoming. Very nicely written, but, overall, quite subjective.

    Excellent Read

    A well written review of the 80's and 90's from a reporter's point of view with personal and behind-the-scenes descriptions that add great interest. Confident and yet self-deprecating, honest and not self- serving.
