This is a good book if your interested in Mike's interviews with the Pop Culture set. His book "Close Encounters," was much more interesting as that was about his earlier work in news correspondence and his interviews with important political/world leaders.
Great read--lots of history and insight from the icon- "Mike Wallace", from politics to stars! Plus a CD of interviews in the book!
This being Mike Wallace's second memoir (Close Encounters, 1984), it highlights the interviews he's conducted over the years. From politicians to presidents, musicians and movie stars, he's met so many interesting people. Always an open mind, Mr. Wallace is a natural when it comes to getting people to open up and spill the beans. He's been doing it since 1956! Interspersed with his recollections of past interviews are bits and pieces of his personal life - just enough to give you the gist of things. Included with this book is an 82-minute DVD of Mr. Wallace's most famous interviews.
If you like to reminisce this is a great CD to listen to.
I really enjoyed this audio book and you will too, if you remember Sixty Minutes throughout the years...Mike Wallace reads his autobiography, relating stories behind the scenes of meetings with film stars, American presidents, foreign leaders and civil rights activists. There's also a CD of images and a personal interview during which he talks about his depression. Very moving!
