Doris Faber has written this biography with a dignity worthy of Adolph Ochs himself. From the pungent smell of newspaper ink to the tap of the wireless, the author paints an exciting, realistic picture of the newspaperman's world. Och's unswerving enthusiasm from the time he sold newspapers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as a small boy, to the day he bought the New York Times as a young man, gives the biography a sound underlying unity. Vocabulary relating to journalism is deftly introduced-as this singular world is presented. Readers of biographies will delight in this portrait of a great man and the dramatic world in which he lived.
