Instils a sense of fearlessness in thought
The stories are gems because getting a fly-on-wall feel is what one expects from a title like this. There is an element of honesty (reasonably managed modesty is possibly more apt) in the stories where one can usually get carried away in one’s storytelling and try to sound a righteous.
What didn’t seem very real though are Bob’s reactions to some crises where he makes it look overtly simplified .. everyone knows that situations like those present multiple layers of complexity and opinions .. and one doesn’t always have the liberty of taking the ‘right’ decision.
It’s a must read/hear for anyone in the media and entertainment business for sure. That’s what made me seek this title.
