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.

I chose this rating because I was alive while he was reporting. He was an
excellent reporter I am also interested in this period of history. I think this
book fills all of my requirements for an excellent read.
