5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from John Simpson, 7 Nov. 2002
This review is from: News from No Man's Land: Reporting the World (Hardcover)
John Simpsons third autobiography takes the reader to the devastating warzone of Afghanistan. This book is the tale of Simpson's and therefore the BBC's entrance into war torn Kabul. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the way that John Simpson alternated chapters on his journey to Afghanistan with chapters on the presentation of the media world today. I admire the hard job that he has as a foreign correspondent and the team that surrounds him. John simpson is careful to praise those around him and highlights very clearly his job is more than a one man show. I appreciate the way he has shown the reader all the "tricks of the trade" and why things are they way they are in media. John Simpson also draws on his other two books developing the idea of the adventures he has had from the second volume to the development of the media and his position within in it from his first volume. These books are real adventures that contain a very thorough look at the media and the attitudes of todays society towards it, although Simpson works for the BBC he takes a very neutral view towards it and gives praise when it is due-in my opinion the BBC deserves a fair amount!. I would recommend any of his books for anyone who wants to understand the media world, enjoys adventures and thoroughly good writing.
