Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Hello Americans, I'm Paul Harvey."

He was the voice of an era. Millions grew up listening to Paul Harvey News and Comment and The Rest of the Story, and trusted the great man who spoke for the little guy.

Good Day! by Paul J. Batura follows the remarkable life of one of the founding fathers of the news media. Paul Harvey started his career during the Great Depression and narrated America's story day by day, through wars and peace, the threat of communism and the crumbling of old colonial powers, consumer booms and eventual busts. In Good Day!, you'll follow,

* How he became "Paul Harvey"
* The remarkable adversity he confronted in his early years
* How he revolutionized the radio industry with his wife, Evelyn
* How a president wanted to "roast" him "good"
* How he was nearly jailed for pursuing a scoop

Paul J. Batura's Good Day! is a colorful biography of the radio pioneer-turned-legend whose guiding light saw the country through dark times. Whether he was covering racial tensions, terrorist attacks, or which vitamins to take, Paul Harvey articulated the American experience for average people making their way in a world too large for quick comprehension. Harvey brought them that world "in dime store words," with a sense of optimism and faith, and with a deep love for America. Here is Harvey's story, the rest of the story, as he would tell it himself.

From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR
"Good Day!"
"Paul Harvey: a voice of reason, a voice of common sense, an eloquent spokesman for the America and the Americans he loved. Open this book and read 'the rest of the story.'"
--Ben Stein, author, actor, economist, and journalist
"Beyond the story of a life well-lived, "Good Day!" captures the essence of this late radio pioneer. Mr. Harvey embodied our common American ideals."
--Mike Huckabee, FOX News political commentator and former governor of Arkansas
"Paul Harvey had a voice and a broadcast you didn't want to turn off. Paul Batura has a book you won't want to put down. And like Harvey's news and comment, you don't want it to end."
--Dan Vallie, director of the Kellar Radio Talent Institute, Appalachian State University
"Tens of millions of Americans got to 'know' Paul Harvey though they had never met or even corresponded, and the standard he established for news with personality will endure as one serious broadcast journalists will aspire to."
--Hugh Hewitt, host of "The Hugh Hewitt Show" and Executive Editor of Townhall.com
"Harvey's legacy couldn't be in more capable hands."
--Dr. James Dobson, bestselling author and founder of Focus on the Family
