Great book. As a twelve year old fascinated with Watergate, these events led to me to aspire to want a career in journalism. I could not put the book down as it was chapter and verse recap of what really happened. Great job. Read full review

Review: A Good Life

User Review  - Tom Spann - Goodreads

Life at the top. A better title might have A Remarkable Life. Entering Bardlee's world is a heady experience. Bradlee paid his dues, for sure, on his rise to the top of the newspapering world. Once ... Read full review

About the author (2011)

Benjamin C. Bradlee was born on August 26, 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard University. Before becoming a reporter and editor at Newsweek and the Washington Post, he worked for the State Department in Paris. As a reporter in the 1950s, he became close friends with then-Senator John F. Kennedy. In 1960, he toured with both Kennedy and Richard Nixon in their presidential campaigns. He later wrote a book, Conversations with Kennedy, recounting their relationship during those years. Bradlee was the executive editor of the Washington Post from 1968 to 1991. In 1971, The New York Times and the Post successfully challenged the government over the right to publish the Pentagon Papers. One year later, he oversaw the Post's prize-winning coverage of the Watergate affair. He is the author of A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures.
