Editorial Reviews

"He was the kind of journalist of whom his sub-editing colleagues back in Fleet Street would say enviously, 'He writes like an angel.' Richard did indeed: you can see it in this delightful book."--John Simpson"The best journalistic autobiography since James Cameron's Point of Departure 30 years ago. he provides one of the best concise accounts of Watergate, as well as writing about Vietnam with a rare understanding and sympathy."--Anthony Howard, The Sunday Times"Sometimes this book makes one's heart ache for a vanished world, other times one's sides almost split with mirth."--Stephen Glover, The Spectator"Marvellous reminiscences of the scrapes, farces and dangers of 40 years filing from the world's danger spots."--Michael Binyon, The Times"Richard Beeston was the last of a breed, a foreign correspondent at a time when abroad was as important as home. His gentle memoir combines Scoop-like anecdotes with the authentic feeling of being there."--Robert Chesshyre, New Statesman"In my opinion the reporter heads the pack in any newspaper office; and the foreign correspondent, so often called upon suddenly to cover the impossible story, comes just ahead of him. Dick Beeston belongs to that distinguished genre."--Lord Deedes, The Daily Telegraph
