The purpose of this insider's account is to provide an answer to all these questions and more. Andrew Marr's brilliant, and brilliantly funny, book is a guide to those of us who read newspapers, or who listen to and watch news bulletins but want to know more. Andrew Marr tells the story of modern journalism through his own experience.
This is an extremely accessible and utterly unique modern social history of British journalism, with all its odd glamour, smashed hopes, and future possibility.

"Doesn't Pull Any Punches"
I really enjoyed this. It sounds like a wonderful conversation with a very interesting man who gives you the inside view. But also he is not afraid to criticise journalists where he feels they are overmighty. Very well written, very well read.
"A Gallop Through the Press"
Andrew Marr tells a good tale, and this exposition of journalism counterpointed his own experiences makes for a winning structure. However, there is something about his reading here and the occasional odd sounding sentence that vaguely irritates and makes me feel it was done in one take, no going back. Bish, bash, bosh, that'll do.
