This is one of those rare books that's both incredibly dense (it took me days to finish it) and a compelling read. You will know more about Edward R. Murrow than you thought possible by the end; you also will enjoy every minute you spent learning that information. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881910082, Hardcover)

Murrow is the biography of America's foremost broadcast journalist, Edward R. Murrow. At twenty-nine, he was the prototype of a species new to communications-an eyewitness to history with power to reach millions. His wartime radio reports from London rooftops brought the world into American homes for the first time. His legendary television documentary See It Now exposed us to the scandals and injustices within our own country. Friend of Presidents, conscience of the people, Murrow remained an enigma-idealistic, creative, self-destructive. In this portrait, based on twelve years of research, A. M. Sperber reveals the complexity and achievements of a man whose voice, intelligence, and honesty inspired a nation during its most profound and vulnerable times.
