Mary Mapes reads like a fine storyteller. Further, the conversational style of her book lends itself well to the audio format. Mapes begins and ends her book discussing the event that made her well-known: the CBS "60 Minutes II" segment that claimed to have documents from Texas Air National Guard officers criticizing George W. Bush for failing his duties as a young man. Those documents were called fakes by critics, CBS apologized for the story, and Mapes was fired. Herein Mapes explains why she believes that the claims of that program were legitimate. The text also contains her views on the role of a free press and its mode of operation.
