"Offers a candid look at the renowned, yet fiercely private, journalist and news anchor who reported on some of the biggest stories of the twentieth century." April 2013 Biography and Memoir newsletter

I thought it was an extremely well researched and well written book. He portrayed the man, warts and all, but what a man! A lot of space was taken up with CBS News in-fighting and ratings wars, but that is the nature of the business. Cronkite was just a great man, and his qualities came through.
