Product description

Review

“Cooper is a storyteller with plenty of heart. . . . A smart, soulful pageturner.” (People)

“Powerful. . . . Packs a visceral punch. . . . Cooper opens a tantalizing window into his own soul.” (USA Today)

“Cooper weaves his experiences at CNN into a moving memoir.” (Newsweek)

Synopsis

From one of America's leading reporters comes a deeply personal, extraordinarily powerful look at the most volatile crises he has witnessed around the world, from New Orleans to Baghdad and beyond. "Dispatches from the Edge of the World" is a book that gives us a rare up-close glimpse of what happens when the normal order of things is suddenly turned upside down, whether it's a natural disaster, a civil war, or a heated political battle. Over the last year, few people have witnessed more scenes of chaos and conflict than Anderson Cooper, whose groundbreaking coverage on CNN has become the touchstone of twenty-first century journalism. This book explores in a very personal way the most important - and most dangerous - crises of our time, and the surprising impact they have had on his life. From the devastating tsunami in South Asia to the suffering Niger, and ultimately Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Cooper shares his own experiences of traversing the globe, covering the world's most astonishing stories. In his first book, that passion communicates itself through a rich fabric of memoir and reportage, reflection and first-person narrative.

Unflinching and utterly engrossing, this is the story of an extraordinary year in a reporter's life.
