As I Saw It A Reporter’s Intrepid Journey by Marvin Scott

This is a fascinating book about Scott's many years of reporting.  He tells how he met and liked JFK, Marilyn Monroe and many other famous people.  He also includes harrowing stories of injustice, for example, his account of Isidore Zimmerman, who came within two hours of dying in the electric chair for a crime which he didn't commit and spent many years in jail and  the civil rights protests of Martin Luther King.  He writes about spending Christmases with the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.Scott knows how to tell a good story and even bring a tear to the eye!

Scott includes articles which will help aspiring journalists, for example, about doing interviews and other important aspects of the profession.  This part of the book may not be as interesting for the general reader.

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
