Recommends it for: anyone interested in history, journalism

In reality, 3.5 stars. More enjoyable than I might have imagined. Frankel, no surprise, is an excellent writer, and his story of flight from Hitler and Stalin to success in America is great stuff. Best of all, he covers lots of territory without getting too detailed about arcane events.

Very interesting insights on Khruschev, JFK,...more

A beautifully written biography detailing his escape from Nazi Germany and his life in journalism at the New York Times. I highly recommend this book.
