If you're seeking an emotional vision of American life in the past 50 years, you'll get a far better experience with the audiobook of Mike Wallace's memoir than with the print version. Unlike the hardcover, in which Wallace's interviews "feel flat on the page" (as one reviewer put it), the conversations with icons such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Malcolm X, Lyndon Johnson, and Barbra Streisand seem to pop out of one's speakers. Listeners enjoy two extra features: an interview with Wallace and a DVD of the television interviews quoted in the book-enabling listeners to hear from the few celebrities--for example, Vanessa Redgrave and Mickey Cohen--who did not make the abridgment.
