Painful truths from a master reporter,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Point of Departure (Experiment in Biography) (Paperback)
James Cameron set an example of honesty and integrity that does much to counteract the bad name that journalism often suffers, particularly in this age of celebrity gossip when many practitioners have no right to call themselves "journalists". Cameron had no university degree and had a difficult early life but he rose to become one of the most-respected reporters of his generation. In this book he outlines the painful truth surrounding everything from nuclear testing to waging war. He can be a witty writer but most of all he touches the heart. He is a reporter's reporter. Can there be higher praise than that?
