Truth Worth Telling by Scott Pelley (19)

This is a book about a reporter’s search for meaning in the stories of our times.  It is a book like no other that I have ever read.

It is an inspiring memoir from the frontlines of history by the award-winning 60 Minutes Correspondent.

Scott Pelley asks a provocative question to start out his memoir: Don’t ask the meaning of life. Life is asking, what’s the meaning of you?

This memoir introduces us to the unforgettable people who discovered the meaning of their lives in the historic events of our times.

A 60 Minute correspondent and former anchor of the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley writes as a witness to events that changed our world. In moving, detailed prose, he stands with firefighters at the collapsing Wold Trade Center on 9/11, advances with American troops in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, and reveals private moments with presidents he’s known for decades. Pelley also offers a resounding defense of free speech and a free press as the rights that guarantee the others.

Above all, this book offers a collection of inspiring stories that remind us of the importance of values in uncertain times. For readers who believe that values matter and that truth is worth telling, Pelley writes, “I have written this book for you.”

This is a GREAT book! I loved the breath and depth of it!
