Audible Editor Reviews

With a career spanning 60 years, 60 Minutes at a time, Mike Wallace staked his place in the homes of Americans, his iconic status as a journalist rivaled only perhaps by Walter Cronkite. Just two months before his retirement, Wallace sat down to reflect with fellow journalist Stephen B. Shepard at the 92nd Street Y. The proceedings are peppered with excerpts from Wallace’s most memorable interviews, among his subjects Eleanor Roosevelt, Nancy Reagan, and Louis Farrakhan. The "ambush journalist" - so named for the dogged intensity with which he pursued his interviewees - shows himself more relaxed and whimsical on the other end of the microphone. At turns stoic, candid, and casual, Wallace spins yarns as entertaining and revealing as his wildest news exposés.
