He also interviewed nearly two hundred of Cronkite's closest friends and colleagues, including Andy Rooney, Leslie Stahl, Barbara Walters, Dan Rather, Brian Williams, Les Moonves, Christiane Amanpour, Katie Couric, Bob Schieffer, Ted Turner, Jimmy Buffett, and Morley Safer, using their voices to instill dignity and humanity in this study of one of America's most beloved and trusted public figures.

"Offers a candid look at the renowned, yet fiercely private, journalist and news anchor who reported on some of the biggest stories of the twentieth century." April 2013 Biography and Memoir newsletter

I thought it was an extremely well researched and well written book. He portrayed the man, warts and all, but what a man! A lot of space was taken up with CBS News in-fighting and ratings wars, but that is the nature of the business. Cronkite was just a great man, and his qualities came through.
