The Dangers and Delights of Life as a Foreign Correspondent
Since making his journalistic debut breaking into Piers Morgan’s 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 Correspondentland’ - its glamour, its quirks, and its sometimes unsavoury practices. Learn how to evade a shoot-to-kill curfew, the media’s rulebook’ for natural disasters, and when fireproof underwear is an absolute essential.
The book draws upon the Out Source Service Agents Programme that was launched in Xerox India in 1998. It covers the transformation of a group of Service Technicians with no background of business into successful entrepreneurs. It captures their fears and challenges as they set off on an unfamiliar journey and how they gradually learned the ropes…
Nick Bryant is currently New York correspondent for the BBC and was formerly the BBC's Washington correspondent. He 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 exposé, this is an unmissable insight into the world of modern reporting, and an intimate portrait of the countries Nick has come to know.
