Pedestrian. Far from being "personal and insightful," it's actually strangely detached and impersonal, and lacking in valuable insights. Shepard devotes too much space to his recent work as a journalism school dean, and not enough to his early life and career, which always interests me when I'm reading a memoir. There is little of value on the challenges posed by the Internet to traditional journalism, which is the supposed focus of this book. He spends an entire chapter on a legal dispute with Bankers Trust over some tapes, which he portrays as a great First Amendment victory like the Pentagon Papers. But the magazine was forced into the embarrassing position of confronting its source in a courtroom. Shepard seems entirely comfortable with that, which says a great deal more about him than the self-administered back slaps that dominate this minor volume.
