Truth Worth Telling introduces us to unforgettable people who discovered the meaning of their lives in the historic events of our times.
A 60 Minutes correspondent and former anchor of the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley writes as a witness to events that changed our world. In moving, detailed prose, he stands with firefighters at the collapsing World Trade Center on 9/11, advances with American troops in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, and reveals private moments with presidents (and would-be presidents) he’s known for decades. Pelley also offers a resounding defense of free speech and a free press as the rights that guarantee all others.
Above all, Truth Worth Telling offers a collection of inspiring tales that reminds us of the importance of values in uncertain times. This is a book for readers who believe that values matter and that truth is worth telling.
