The camera never blinks twice: the further adventures of a television journalistUser Review - Book Verdict
Since writing the first volume of his memoirs, Rather has ascended to the anchor chair of The CBS Evening News. Most of this volume, however, is devoted to his "adventures" as a reporter in the field, from Afghanistan to China, from Vietnam to the Midwestern United States. At its best-describing our chilling venture into Afghanistan in the early days of the Soviet invasion-the book really cooks. But too many chapters fall flat. And don't look for anything on what it's like to succeed the beloved Walter Cronkite or more than a passing reference to his controversial pairing with Connie Chung. The book does end on a high note, with the text of a speech Rather gave to a news directors' convention in 1993 on the proliferation of fluffy and ratings-conscious news. Given Rather's stature and the popularity of his previous memoir, The Camera Never Blinks (LJ 6/1/77), this is recommended for most libraries.-Thomas Wiener, formerly with "American Film"
