I really liked this book - just like listening to one of Andy's commentaries on 60 minutes, but longer and more detailed. I was impressed that he wrote it many years after his experiences, allowing much time for reflection. Andy has a very comfortable writing style, almost conversational. I was able to finish the book in 1 day; partly due to the interesting writing style but mostly because it was just so fascinating a read.

I enjoyed the personal accounts of the war that Andy Rooney writes about. Very interesting to hear about travel, weather conditions, etc during that time period with the limitations during the second world war. I also thought Rooneys insights on the personalities of MacArthur, Patton and Eisenhower were interesting, along with the personal accounts of Ernest Hemingway. Pretty neat to hear from someone who knew them and spoke with them.
