Written in his intimate, inclusive style, Jeremy Vine’s book engages the reader on a deeply personal level in the questions, insights and revelations from 25 years in broadcasting.
Exploring the definition of news, Vines opens out his varied and fascinating career, while riveting our attention. Moving from the BBC and Westminster to Africa with unflinching and penetrating analysis, he details experiences, shortcomings and lessons learned in a refreshingly self-deprecating and lively style. What comes across most clearly is his intense love for the whole process of gathering and presenting news and his deep admiration of the ordinary people whose poignant stories he dignifies. He moves repeatedly between stories of power and of weakness managing to convey the reality and significance of both with huge compassion.
