Quick Read:Dispatches from the edge

Quoted from HarperCollinsPublishers ” Few people have witnessed more scenes of chaos and conflict around the world than Anderson Cooper, whose groundbreaking coverage of CNN has changed the way we watch the news. In this gripping, candid, and remarkably powerful memoir, he offers an unstinting, up-close view of the most harrowing crises of our time, and the profound impact they have had on his life.  ….. “

Dispatches from the Edge|A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival  is one of the most inspiring books I read over the past few years… It follows the famous news anchor Anderson Cooper personal life growing up in New York and his stories from around the world by going back and forth in time… 

Anderson Cooper is a real inspiration and in his book he brings stories of war and survival from over the world … I highly recommend!

  2. My husband read the book, it’s a bit disturbing for me. Did you see his coverage on Haiti? When he had to break a fight and it turned out to be an adult hitting a child. The child was bleeding and the horrifid look on Anderson Cooper said it all about the situation there…*shuddering*

    • I used to watch him back in the states … unfortunately I don’t anymore … But I like to capture current events and cultural photos … so he really inspired me to go out there and travel to those places …
