From Library Journal:

White, William S. The Making of a Journalist. Univ. Pr. of Kentucky. Sept. 1986. c.264p. illus. ISBN 0-8131-1603-1. $22. media/memoir The authors of these two books have a great deal in common. Both have had long and distinguished careers as professional journalists and writers. Both have essentially mid-Western roots, and both have had strong involvements with and interests in presidential politics, particularly the Democratic Party. (Martin worked on both Stevenson campaigns and for Kennedy in 1960 and Johnson in 1964, while White, as a national affairs correspondent for the New York Times and later as a nationally syndicated columnist covering the Washington scene, possessed especially close connections with the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.) Thus, their memoirs cover much of the same ground. Of the two books, Martin's is more fully a memoir in scope, relating a good deal about his personal life in addition to his writing career and diplomatic service (as ambassador to the Dominican Republic under President Kennedy). White's work offers more of an insider's view of the presidential administrations and historical events he covered during his career and contains less personal data, although it is not totally devoid of such material. Both works offer interesting perspectives on the major political figures and historical events of the postwar years. For their political insights, as well as their autobiographical elements, both works can be generally recommended. Scott Wright, History Dept., Coll. of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.
