It has been a remarkable career for Bob Schieffer, the chief
Washington correspondent for CBS News. He is trusted by countless Americans to
cover the stories that matter. During his extraordinary career, he has won six
Emmys and in 2002 the National Press Foundation hailed him as the Broadcaster
of the Year.
Now the highly respected veteran newsman shares the stories
he’s long kept under wraps in a book the
Washington Post says “is everything a memoir should be: candid,
funny, and loaded with great stories about famous people.” Schieffer goes
beyond the news everyone is familiar with to share the compelling anecdotes
only his colleagues were previously privy to. Says the author, “I want to tell
you about the parts that didn’t get on television or in the paper.” The result
is an eye-opening glimpse behind the scenes of the news business.
Whether the topic is the Nixon White House or Vietnam, the
JFK assassination or the 1968 election, Schieffer has a story to tell that you
simply have not heard before, but are almost certain to find fascinating.
