Much of the book focuses on the unceremonious ouster of Rather from CBS after what he called undue influence from the Bush administration after damning reports on Bush and his cabinet. The book also does a good job of giving Rather's formative years of building his career as well as his second act with HD Net thanks to Mark Cuban. Rather gives great personal memories into the major events of history from someone in a front row seat to the events that changed our world.

This antiwar novel by Dos Passos starts off with the story of gung ho soldiers ready to take on the world to the AWOL prone jaded soldiers that feel they are slaves in a system that cares little to none for them.
Not what I expected but still a decent philosophical read on why art is important.
