Format: Paperback
This book is a moving and honest account of life as a foreign correspondent. A personal story of world events and adventures, the way that those events are reported and the way that reporting has changed. This book is fascinating take on the story behind the stories and the way that news is portrayed and perceived. Well worth a read and highly reccomended!

Was gripped by the first few pages, but it then gets slow and descriptive on details that do not keep me reading. Gave up and never finished the book. Perhaps just not to my taste.

Knowing the author I found the book utterly interesting. The style of prose makes for great reading and gives an insight to news items beyond what was broadcast or previously expressed. Highly recommended.

Confessions from Correspondentland: The Dangers and Delights of Life as a Foreign CorrespondentReading this book it becomes apparent that Nick Bryant has reported on most major news events in the last 15+ years.
The book diarises events in a gripping and often comical way. A real page turner and I have a new found respect for BBC foreign correspondants who, when others are running from danger are desparately running toward it to get the story.

I was expecting a lot more from this book, but it does not deliver. The promised humour is weak and there is no real interest in the stories.

I enjoyed this but only one story at a time, full of detail and interesting trivia and quite tiring to read

How disappointing that this couldn't have been made more interesting. It is as if Nick was flicking through his diaries over the last 20 years and doing a bullet point run down - 'went here, wrote a few articles, oh this dictator/president was great, went somewhere else and did the same again. Missed 9/11 as I was on holiday, didn't make it to Iraq, but had a quick jolly in Afghanistan where I like think I ruffled a few feathers. Long live the BBC!'..... Lots of opportunity for character development and refelection none which were taken advantage of. I was almost in a coma of boredom before I reached the end.

As Nick wrote himself of his own blog, such remains true of this book ;
"The analysis has often been pretty shallow. Factually, they have often been incomplete. They have not always benefited from what foreign correspondents value the most: the luxury of patient observation."
