It's quite thrilling to hear Walter Cronkite's voice again. For many listeners the CBS journalist was part of every day throughout the '60's, '70's, and '80s. Cronkite reviews his encounters with presidents, world leaders and the events of those years. The memoir shares Cronkite's opinions, not just his newscast presentation of facts and events. Enriched by his low, avuncular voice, Cronkite delivers the narrative with the concise, crisp precision of his broadcasts. Careful listening helps as the commentary on politics, public figures and historic moments is not chronological. A slight melancholy and his acerbity about the current media are somewhat lost in the professionalism of his delivery. However, it"s valuable to hear Cronkite present his own reflections.
