KIRKUS REVIEW

Autobiography of an eager, energetic crusading journalist, blunt and outspoken. A book studded with the big names and big news of the last 30 years. At 26, he was Managing Editor of the Hartford Courant, and left because the paper refused to expose many of the prevalent economic abuses. Next- he put out The Graphic for Bernarr MacFadden, physical culturist, and pushed into prominence Winchell, Sobol, Sullivan and others. Next The Mirror for Hearst -- and lost that job because he wrote a novel lampooning his boss. Work in Washington as dollar a year man, then back into journalism under Arnenberg, editing the Sunday rotogravure of The Inquirer. A full, cyclonic career, in vigorous, fast-paced fashion, spotted with human interest bits. The story of independent, progressive fighting editor. Good going.
