For the most part I felt the author to be mildly to moderately cocky and arrogant in his narrative This is understandable to some degree considering the fact it's an autobiography and the natural inclination is to portrays yourself the hero but at times it was almost too much to bear While there were some moments of humility and humor freuently I felt it took on a snobbish tone and too much of it was a recounting of major events in which he participated in or people he rubbed shoulders with or enjoys an intimate relationship with elitist things he's been able to do etc etc blah blah blah; BUT hidden throughout the text at random points are really astute insights regarding politics society media news television culture and other various issues I personally think of often and I feel are of major relevance and importance today Because of this I am glad that I soldiered on and finished the book resisting my urge to put it down at times Prior to reading this book I was familiar with the name but knew very little about him overall It turns out that he was a pretty cool dude as far as this history buff is concerned; having participated in or lived through many events that interest me It's just a shame that he thought so too; lol Had his celebration of self been minimized a little I would probably have rated the book a 55 but I would still recommend the book to anyone interested in journalism or the history of his time

review á eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Walter Cronkite

Vents in the second half of this century events the world knows about because of Walter Cronkite's work The New York Times Book ReviewA MAIN SELECTION OF THE BOOK OF THE MONTH CLU. Although this book was written nearly 25 years ago it is worthwhile reading It was interesting to see how television evolved especially in the early years Cronkite spent his early journalistic career in newspapers so that is interesting as well It is amazing to read about the events people and opportunities Cronkite encountered in his long and esteemed career the space race Vietnam War presidents environmental experiences The list goes on and on His take on political conventions was insightful Cronkite comments on the Internet which was just becoming prominent but it makes me wonder what his reaction would be to today's social media influences Even so much of his commentary which was written at a different time is still very relevant today One thing I was looking for was something about the You Are There series In 7th grade American history class we occasionally watched these Cronkite would be at his broadcast desk and then would take the viewer to a historical event such as the American Revolution; hence you are there In the early 60's these already seemed a bit cheesy and dated I learned from the book they were produced in the mid 50's so weren't all that old Still a movie in 7th grade was always good Plus if Walter Cronkite was involved that was even better
