As he prepared to retire from Face The Nation, Schieffer reflected on the acclaim that came his way during the latter stages of his career. The interesting thing about my life - a lot of the recognition I got was after most people retired," he told The New York Times, going on to add, "I think that people just became familiar with me just because I had been there and others had come and gone.

I am leading a discussion on this book in two days. I began knowing little about Schieffer; I'm an NBC/Meet the Press viewer. I found my opinion changing as I read the book. Some of the drag early on came from his blinding ambition and delusion-slight chance of Cronkite replacement? Some of my favorite presidential coverage was Johnson, Nixon, McGovern where his subtitle makes the most sense. I found the review of the changes in broadcast journalism from hard news to story telling and entertainment interesting because he adapted surprisingly well, but room for book editing here. He calls himself an independent although his roots were in the democratic party, and I think he clearly assesses the strengths and weaknesses of both parties' presidents with just a lingering question about the limited Reagan coverage. He's willing to change his mind (Ford pardon) and Nixon praise at his death. He doesn't omit his personal issues with alcohol, caffeine, and sleep deprivation and lack of quality time at home. I am glad I didn't stop reading as I was tempted to do around 20% of the way in. As a good journalist knows how to do, he'd hook me again and again with well crafted anecdotes, as I was getting annoyed at the detail on budget cuts, leadership in CBS, and wanting to know something new. From the Pentagon, White House, State Department, and Congressional beats, he has quite the distinguished career and continues to outlast them all on Face the Nation and chief Washington correspondent.

I enjoyed his style of writing serious, but also humerous. I also felt I learned a lot about circumstances in the past, and what brought them about.
At that time, I was too busy working as an RN and raising six chldren. I am not a writer, though wish I had more talent that way, just want to say,I enjoyed the book and thought it was worth while.

This is a terrific book. It is not an important book, but it is full of terrific "oh yeah's" for anyone over 40 years old. This is because Schieffer's memoirs will jog your memory.
Oh yeah, I remember when President Ford dumped his VP, Rockefeller, and put Bob Dole on the ticket. Oh yeah, I remember when Ford pardoned Nixon. Oh yeah, I remember when Tower's nomination to the Cabinet got derailed, a young congressman... what was his name? Oh yeah, it was Dick Cheney who eventually became Secretary of Defense.
Much of Schiffer's career is the result of good and bad timing. And his book deals with this in a direct and self effacing way. Dan Rather was ahead of him at the White House, on the weekend news. Walter Chronkite and Leslie Stahl preceeded him in the "Face the Nation" slot. He is candid about his first, incorrect reaction to the Watergate breakin reports. His stories about the competitiveness of tv reporters and anchors have a refreshing honesty to them.
But this is no kiss and tell book. When he relates a story about another reporter with a drinking problem, he does not disclose the name, or circumstances. He has the grace and dignity to leave out details that would have us all guessing who it might be. Schiffer is not a gossip, and I applaud him for that.
The timing of the publication of this book could have been better. It was published in hard cover just the the US and the UK were preparing for war with Iraq. But, I suspect that Schiffer will take it in stride. Perhaps, the soft cover will come out at a better time.
Schiffer's book is easy and delightful reading for anyone who has followed the last 25 or 30 years of national news. It won't change your life or the way you see things. It won't give you great original insight into the issues of these days. It will however provide hours of pure enjoyment as you read it. I highly recommend This Just In.

Newsman Bob Schieffer takes the reader for a review of his very interesting life as a journalist from the period of the Kennedy assassination through the 9-11 tragedy. Much of the book is political history of past presidents and what took place during their administrations. Whether you lived through this entire period of time or not I think you will find this book to be engaging reading. Schieffer brings you behind the scenes and discusses the personality traits of various persons we have come to be familiar with over the years involving the television media. The book is slightly over 400 pages long, but it makes for easy reading even for those who are not especially interested in American politics from the newscasters point of view.

Mr. Schieffer is a great writer. Loved his insights into our political world from a reporter's point of view.

From the first page to the last, I could hear the warm, Texas cadence of Bob Schieffer's voice. While I have lived through most of the history, much of what he said was new to me. I found the history of White House politics and the press very enlightening. And his stint as a reporter in Viet Nam, gave me a clearer picture of just what the young men of my generation had to deal with.
Bob Schieffer demonstrates in the book that reporters are just as vulnerable to the foibles of life as we are. While his career was most prominent in his life, the needs of his family, in the end won out.
He takes us into the broadcast booth with him where we find people who worked for four days in 9/11, producers who sat under his desk feeding him page after page of the Starr report and where on election night 2000, the networks themselves set the stage for the most bizarre night ever on TV.
We are with him in Dallas, Viet Nam and on the courthouse steps of a sleepy 1960 Fort Worth. Throughout the entire book Schieffer, in his modest, warm and humorous way takes us on a forty year journey through an America that has reinvented itself over and over, only to come full circle on a viewing platform at Ground Zero.
