Uncivilized beasts and shameless hellions : travels with an NPR correspondent
"In this candid, intimate account, John Burnett exposes the whoa he's known through his adventures as an NPR reporter. The result is a revealing and personal account that will fascinate not only NPR listeners, but anyone interested in the state of our world today and how the media covers it. John F. Burnett has reported from the Branch Davidian standoff in Waco and the Kosovo conflict; covered the guerrilla wars in Central America; ridden with US marines during the invasion of Iraq; and reported from the flooded streets of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and from New York City, Pakistan, and Afghanistan in the weeks and months following 9/11. In this book, John Burnett takes readers behind the scenes of the major events of our time, letting us see what it's really like gathering the news on the front lines."--BOOK JACKET.
