The remainder of the book amazed me that Max Frankel lived through and was involved in many of the historic events that occurred during the Cold War. Although at times Frankel seemed to explain in hindsight his prescience at events about to occur on the world stage. (As aside, you wonder why you didn't have people like him working for the CIA).
An aspect of the book that I didn't enjoy was the author's apologetic tone in explaining his executive decisions while an editor at the NY Times. It seemed this portion of the autobiography was aimed at the co-workers and people at NY Times that Frankel had worked with.
Definately, the parts of the book talking about the author's personal experiences, whether in Germany, Washington Heights, or the tragic illness of his wife were captivating. The rest about his career seemed routine.
I have read it years ago and now I'm buying copies as gifts: for my daughters and for friends and journalists in Ukraine.
By now there should have been another edition published, but thank God there is Amazon, where I can still buy mint-condition copies. I am just a few years younger than Max Frankel, but our roots are in the same part of Ukraine, and during the Second World War I lived in Saxony and Thuringia, where Frankel lived as a child. I love this book, and I want more people to know about it. These two copies eventually will end up in two journalism school libraries in Kyiv and Lviv in Ukraine, where they lecture in English as well as Ukrainian.
