This reminded me of listening to the news.He didn't give much of his personel side to it.
I listened to this audiobook in Feb. 2018, a full 18 years after it was written. It was fascinating listening to the thoughts journaled from 1999 by Ted Koppel throughout the whole year. Remembering Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky's indiscretions, the universal worry of Y2K and it's effects, the war in Bosnia, the loss of JFK Jr, his wife, and sister-in-law, as well as using a Palm Pilot and being amazed at it's capabilities was bittersweet. Realizing how naive we were as a country prior to 9/11, learning just how corrupt our government and judicial systems really are, and discovering just how much more far apart our money and class systems could be divided was sad. We have come so far in some ways, especially in technology, since this book was written, and yet, we've barely moved at all in other ways. I enjoyed this book immensely and heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoys recent history.
