 About the Book

Time and again, Mitchell has proven herself by taking on the tough assignments - starting with her first posting abroad in Guyana after the previous NBC correspondent had been murdered by Jim Joness henchmen. She has had unique access to the halls of power and here gives us her unvarnished insights into every president from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush - and the men and women who surround them. Andrea Mitchell is always the one with the scoop. As she writes in Talking Back, she was the one whose questioning prompted Hillary Clinton to say she didnt want to stay home and bake cookies, who revealed that Ronald Reagans napping caused a rescheduling of the space shuttles reentry into the atmosphere, who has been present at every major international event from the fall of the Berlin Wall to Yasser Arafats funeral to Condoleezza Rices first whirlwind trip as secretary of state. She is known as the one to beat to the story, whether its a series of exclusive interviews with Fidel Castro or breaking the news that John Kerry had picked John Edwards as his running mate. Mitchells behind-the-scenes memoir is a must-read for anyone interested in politics and current affairs. It will also fascinate anyone looking for an insiders perspective on the dramatic changes in television news, from one of the pioneering women in a traditionally all-male profession.
