Product description


“The absolute best nonfiction book of the year . . . a work of journalistic art . . . history straight and true . . . should be required reading at the Columbia School of Journalism.”Chicago Tribune

“The best Bradlee biography we’re likely to get.”The New York Times Book Review

“Surprising and compulsively readable . . . Himmelman’s chapters on Watergate are especially masterful, untangling that web in a fresh and comprehensible way.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“A sparkling, revealing, definitely controversial, and very readable book . . . highly amusing, particularly for any connoisseur of juicy modern American politics.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“The bold brilliance of Jeff Himmelman’s Yours in Truth comes through because it is not simply a biography of a quixotic figure who changed the timbre of American newspapers. Rather, it is also a riveting history lesson with fastidiously researched facts intertwined with first-person observations.”—Charleston Post and Courier

“Embedded in Yours in Truth there are fundamental insights about journalism and the role of a dynamic press.”The Atlantic

“The biographer either sells his soul for the cozy dinners or bails for the truth. Himmelman chose the latter.”The Huffington Post

“[A] riveting new life of one of America’s greatest editors.”The Daily Beast
