A New York Times bestseller

In this triumphant memoir, Carl Bernstein, the Pulitzer Prize-winning coauthor of All the President's Men and pioneer of investigative journalism, recalls his beginnings as an audacious teenage newspaper reporter in the nation's capital??a winning tale of scrapes, gumshoeing, and American bedlam.

In 1960, Bernstein was just a sixteen-year-old at considerable risk of failing to graduate high school. Inquisitive, self-taught??and, yes, truant??Bernstein landed a job as a copyboy at the Evening Star, the afternoon paper in Washington. By nineteen, he was a reporter there.
In Chasing History: A Kid in the Newsroom, Bernstein recalls the origins of his storied journalistic career as he chronicles the Kennedy era, the swelling civil rights movement, and a slew of grisly crimes. He spins a buoyant, frenetic account of educating himself in what Bob Woodward describes as "the genius of perpetual engagement."
Funny and exhilarating, poignant and frank, Chasing History is an extraordinary memoir of life on the cusp of adulthood for a determined young man with a dogged commitment to the tr

I really enjoyed learning how newspapers and reporters got things done back in the day. Bernstein's writing is perfectly adequate but the way he chose to conclude was weak and lazy, imo. ( )

Excellent memoir by Carl Bernstein on his early days as a reporter and also a historical look at how a newspaper worked in the mid-twentieth century. ( )

As he states in his acknowledgments in the book, this is his telling of his life at the ages of 16 to 21 which were his formative years working in many roles at the Washington Evening Star newspaper jumping at every opportunity to write and report on events in Washington, DC. Through his eyes we meet many interesting and in some case eccentric individuals who worked at the Star and who influenced Bernstein's career.

He was there when JFK was elected and later assassinated. He also experienced the great Civil Rights revolution that divided America during the 1960's. This is reading history up real close. ( )

This is my first Carl Bernstein book, and I really enjoyed it. Having studied journalism in college and having taught it to high school students for about half of my 40-year teaching career, I’m always interested in someone’s story about his or her life in newspapers. Bernstein is the last of a dying breed of self-taught journalists. He tried college but just couldn’t put up with the nonsense required to earn a degree. And, in fact, that was responsible for his leaving the Washington Star where he began his career. An editor at the Star seemed to think a college diploma was more important than the thick scrapbook of clips Carl had accumulated during the time he spent at the Star. Bernstein went on to win a Pulitzer. The Star went bankrupt. You don’t have to necessarily have to be a fan of Carl Bernstein’s to enjoy this book. It does help if you have at least a passing interest in newspapers, especially newspapers before the age of the Internet. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. ( )

Bernstein’s book of his early days of reporting for the now defunct Washington Star reads like it could have jumped from the pages of The Front Page. There are the bells going off on the teletype machine denoting a news flash coming in, reporters calling in news stories to “dictationists” who type up the stories as the reporters are dictating them, linotype men setting one of the paper’s five editions in type, and the rumbling printing presses that make the building shake. The only thing missing is Bernstein running into the composing room yelling, “STOP THE PRESSES!”

Bernstein surely had newspapers in his blood, starting as a copyboy at age 16 while he was still in high school Bernstein works his way up to general assignment reporter and manages to be present for quite a lot of history along the way. He also manages to come in contact with the kind of colorful characters that filled books, and movies for the first half of the twentieth century.

This book makes me sad for what has been lost in our digital age and makes me want to read a print newspaper again. ( )
