A fascinating book by one of the finest news correspondents ever. Cronkite's behind the scenes look at the infancy of television and the news reporting styles as we know them are great reading. There will never be another reporter like him.

It was no accident that Walter Cronkite came to be known as the most trusted man in America. From the age of six, when he dashed down a hill to spread the news of President Harding's death, Walter Cronkite's vocation was unmistakable. Now at the age of eighty, Cronkite tells his life story-the personal and professional odyssey of the original "anchorman",for whom the very word was coined.As a witness to the crucial events of this century,Cronkite has set a standard for integrity, objectivity, enthusiasm, compassion, and insight that would be difficult to surpass.

Here are Cronkite's portraits of presidents, his behind-the-scenes tales of politics and broadcasting, his views on the future of television and the presentation of the news. But now he occupies a ringside seat during the decline of his profession and the ascent of the lowest common denominator-still, the American people know the difference. They know that for decades they have had the privilege of getting their news from a gentleman of the highest caliber. And they will immensely enjoy A Reporter's Life.
