I found this book to be a refreshing look at history during the last forty years. His commentaries at the end of "Face the Nation" are something I look forward to each week and reading some of them brought back memories of hearing them. There were times when I could visualize his face when I first heard them. Some times he is deadly serious and others there is a twinkle in his eye as he delivers his thought. He is not afraid to admit that on review that he was wrong when the original piece was broadcast. This is refreshing. The background on his family during these times is interesting. His wife, Pat, sounds like someone I would enjoy meeting. This is a book that should be read over time so the information can be digested. Reading this is like inviting an old friend into your home.

I thoroughly enjoyed this well written collection of Mr. Schieffer's essays. I don't think that I let many Sunday mornings pass by without listening to Mr. Schieffer, and I have always enjoyed his commentaries and outlook on situations. This book provides a well balanced collection of his essays on every subject. Some will make you laugh, some will bring a tear to your eye. All in all, it is America.

Mr. Schieffer has always been my favorite journalist; his plainspoken demeanor, thorough knowledge of politics, and fair reporting make him a trusted figure. In this book he lays out many of his best commentaries for us, resulting in a work that makes you smile while informing and entertaining. As I read it I could almost hear his Texas accent reading it to me in the characteristic way only Bob does.

You will not be disappointed if you buy or read this book.
