In Bob Schieffer's own words, from the JFK assassination to the World Trade Center attacks, "I got to see most of it and came to know many of the major figures of those four decades because I am a reporter. I became a reporter because I always wanted to see things for myself and make my own judgments about them. Those events I covered have become part of our history and you already know most of them. But I want to tell you about the parts that didn't get on television or in the paper, the serious parts and the not-so-serious parts, the good times I had, and the presidents, senators, correspondents, big-time crooks, and small-time swindlers I came to know. Here are the stories I tell my friends, and they are the stories I want to share with you." Schieffer is not only broadcast journalism's most experienced Washington reporter, but one of its best natural writers. This Just Inis filled with great behind-the-scenes tales and surprising scoops based on dozens of brand-new-and sometimes startling-interviews. Smart, witty, and insightful, these are the stories you'll want to share with your friends.

If you are a history buff, this gives you some inside looks into the politics from Kennedy through Clinton as well as the media battles of the day. It is quick paced, light, easy read - more enjoyable anecdotes than deep- but he isn't trying for that, and it makes a good read,
