(not finished this review - my computer dying a slow and painful death, currently using borrowed laptop that i don't like much)

Up to page 345ish. Not a full scale auto biography of his life, more of his working life as a journalist. He documents a number of "big" stories he worked on along with at the beginning his youthful checkered work history and sliding into journalism. mtc. I have laughed and cried. (my computer is still hiccupping).
