Being in Atlanta, we have all heard small stories about the inner workings of CNN, but this book brings to light the true beginnings of a television phenomenon. Well written and thoughtful, the author does a great job of getting the story across without just sugarcoating it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book from cover to cover, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I loved this book. John Baker is a wonderful story teller, and doesn't hide any of the secrets of CNN. I recommend this book if you are an avid fan of CNN, a news junkie, or simply enjoy laughing out loud.

Advance Warning: whoever designed the printing layout of this book should be shot at sunset. The margins are teeny, requiring that the reader constantly fight with the book to keep it open enough to read. My wrists and arms are worn out from fighting with the book.

For those who were there - a stroll down memory lane.

For others - a 'Truth is stranger than fiction' account of the origins and infancy of CNN.

Baker takes a real juvenile smart-ass tone that belies a serious look inside CNN. A once-over that skims the surface and calls into question the authors intent. Is this to be a window to Ted Turner's most valuable contribution to the media or a self-serving "I was there"?

The book was entertaining reading. I was one of the original CNN employees and read the book as soon as I knew it was out there. However, there were 2 worlds at CNN, the management world, and the world of the "Rats" as many of the workers called themselves. John's book is a view from the point of a manager. The views of the Rats would paint a different picture than John's in a discussion of some of the things he talked about. Although my memory of some of the events John described is not the same as John's, I enjoyed his book and would recommend buying it for entertainment.
Perhaps some day somebody will write a book telling about the CNN experience from a view of the ordinary worker. A good title for such a book would be "Brother Rat".
