This third volume of autobiography from John Simpson concentrates on the mechanics of newsgathering and reporting, drawing on John's vast experience. With incident and anecdote, Simpson gives readers an insight into the way a journalist follows a story, even when the odds are stacked against them, and they are at risk of great personal danger, as for instance, when, disguised as a woman, he crossed the border into Afghanistan following the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre.
