It’s not the details of Barbara Walter’s life that I find so interesting, but the era and the scope of change in society that spans the timeline she covers.
Print journalists’ negative opinions of those that sold out to higher pay in television journalism; the ‘old-boy’ network a female had to contend with in the new medium of television journalism; historical events and figures, presidents and celebrities that were interviewed by Walters – it’s as much a history book of the 60s and 70s as an autobiography.
As a journalist, Walters’ writing is well thought out, clear and continually keeps you engaged.
I recommend this book to everyone.
