Publishers Description: Since making his journalistic debut breaking into Piers Morganas office, BBC foreign correspondent Nick Bryant has rattled Donald Rumsfeld, had tea with President Karzai, slept through 9/11, and gotten a free lunch out of the Tamil Tigers. Now casting a sideways glance at his own profession, Nick reveals the day-to-day realities of ï½Correspondentlanda a” its glamour, its quirks, and its sometimes unsavoury practices. Learn how to evade a shoot-to-kill curfew, the medias ï½rulebooka for natural disasters, and when fireproof underwear is an absolute essential.As former Washington correspondent for the BBC, Bryant also provides a window onto American politics that no insider can. From how Bush saves seats for his favorite reporters to how Clinton responds to questions about that little blue dress, Bryant discovers the dangers and delights of seeing the world through this unique and often strange perspective.Part memoir, part travelogue, part expos, this is an unmissable insight into the world of modern reporting, and an intimate portrait of the countries Nick has come to know.
