If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a quitter, Russell Baker's mother always said. Baker certainly never quit - in fact, this fantastic journalist's Pulitzer Prize-winning column appears twice a week in The New York Times. This book, his second autobiographical volume, describes the rewarding stages of his career and his encounters with John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Eugene McCarthy, and other major figures. All the wit, perceptiveness, and poignant humor that has graced his column for many years comes through in this engaging memoir. Download and start listening now!

    " Most enjoyable memoir of growing up as a journalist/humorist in America the 50s & 60s. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melinda McLaughlin | 2/12/2013

    " Recommended by my journalist husband, this was an enjoyable trip into the past. Light reading though, so definitely appropriate for beaches, airplanes, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Cathi | 6/27/2012

    " Russell Baker's autobiography, Growing Up, is one of my all-time favorite books. This is the sequel to that book--good, but not nearly as satisfying as Growing Up. "

    " Follow up to a book I really liked, Growing Up. The Good Times not as good, but I still enjoyed it. "
