Five years with the United Press across the Atlantic, from the time of the Lousiania disaster on. Then a succession of happy accidents which made him Johnny on the spot in one big news scoop after another, winding up with Lindbergh's arrival in Paris. Eye-witness material, extremely well done --journalism at its best. A bird's eye view of how a reporter works and manages to be there when the news breaks; unknown episodes behind the llines; kind words to those who helped eliminate red tape; scoops; and through it all, the sheer joy of the job. Good entertainment, essentially a book for men and boys.
