"Run, don’t walk to the nearest bookstore and treat yourself to the most heartwarming, nostalgia-producing book you will have read in many a year." –Ann Landers
"Entertaining . . . The story of a modest man who succeeded extravagantly by remaining mostly himself. . . . His memoir is a short course on the flow of events in the second half of this century–events the world knows more about because of Walter Cronkite’s work." –The New York Times Book Review

About Walter Cronkite
Walter Cronkite has been called the most trusted man in American. His journalistic career has spanned six decades.
Throughout this memoir, Walter Cronkite comes across as very humble. It’s pretty amazing and becomes even more so as you read this book and realize just how much the man has done. A pretty amazing overview of recent history and you get to read about Patton crying like a baby (see the excerpt. It’s great). What more could you ask for?
