From the jacket: "Here is the inside story of Mike Wallace's career as one of America's most respected and controversial television journalists. He is the senior correspondent of the most successful news show in TV history: CBS's 60 Minutes, which has rated among the top ten of all programs for the past seven years.
Known for his no-holds-barred, hard-hitting interviews with the famous and the infamous, as well as the unknown, Wallace tells of his gut reactions to events and experiences he has encountered over the years.
Wallace's interviews have taken him around the globe; the list includes: Ronald Reagan, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Menachem Begin, Richard Nixon, Anwar Sadat, General William Westmoreland, Lyndon Johnson, Johnny Carson, Vladimir Horowitz, the Shah of Iran.
In addition to his interviews, Mike Wallace has covered some of the most important news stories in modern history: Watergate, Vietnam, the Middle East, U.S. politics and many more.
In this candid, forthright, disarming and lively account, he describes the behind-the-scenes stories of his famed interviews, explains how he developed his tough, confrontational approach, and draws the reader into a history of our times."
Author: Mike Wallace and Gary Paul Gates
Condition: Very good, I'd say. The dust jacket is a bit worn and wrinkled, with several edge tears, and the spine of the book itself is noticeably rubbed from the jacket. However, the pages of the book itself are like new.
