About the Book

Bernard Gwertzman tells the story of growing up as a journalist in the world of print newspapers, his hometown New Rochelle, New York’s Standard-Star then the Washington DC Evening Star (both of which went under as print papers collapsed) where he became a senior diplomatic correspondent until moving to the New York Times, where he served during the Cold War as Moscow Bureau Chief and then traveled with Henry Kissinger who was making deals and opening the way toward peace in the Middle East. He rose to foreign editor, guiding the paper in covering the collapse of Communism from 1989–1993, the end of apartheid, and other major stories. In 1995, he helped lead the Times into the world of the Internet, which may be the future of the press today.
