Overview

In this sequel to GROWING UP, Russell Baker relates the striving of his early career and contrasts it to the country's sunny years under Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy. Baker rose steadily, from newsboy to college paper, from police reporter to rewrite man, from White House correspondent to Washington columnist. In outline these stages read like a successful resume, but it is Baker's recall of detail that make the story live.

Nothing was easy. Success never is. Behind every triumph lies a pitfall, behind every joy a hard lesson. Baker tells it all from the mean streets of Baltimore to a seat at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and from watching Ike fish to sharing LBJ's secrets.

"I am going to think of Russ Baker's new book simply as `Russell Baker Continued,' and I never want to stop." --Harrison E. Salisbury
