I've purchased several of these books for myself, but my young broadcast writers always steal them. Murrow's words are incredibly powerful, and a great model for beginning writers to follow. I learned to write for television news by reading Murrow's stories out loud. Sixty-odd years ago, Murrow's words helped change the course of history. And even today, they can change lives. I would never have gone into TV if I hadn't read Murrow's writing and realized how profound television might be, in the right hands.
