  1. Derek

    I actually didn t finish this I want to learn about Pulitzer, but the book wasn t holding my attention at all The narrative was frequently disjointed The author seemed to be trying to hard to be accessible I may try again another time, or find a different biography.As far in as I went, Pulitzer seemed fascinating He didn t seem nearly the paragon of journalistic integrity I expected, given his reputation He seemed eager to publish sensationalist news and published material of questionable sourc [...]

    I suppose this read was far overdue as I earned a degree in journalism work daily w journalists Even the pre face with promises of hardship, integrity, historical register and scandal prey tell A particularly fun story was of the young Pulitzer breaking open the doors on a secret democratic caucus so that his was the only republican newspaper to cover it Ballsy Pulitzer I like your style politics to Pulitzer was not the art of compromise but rather the determination to stick to one s well aimed [...]

    Mr Brian wrote an exceptional biography on Pulitzer, showing the reading world why Pulitzer s excessive attention to detail and his drive for journalistic excellence set the example for writers and editors to emulate I found the biography eye opening, especially in areas where Pultizer and his newspapers had direct impact on mayoral, gubernatorial and presidential elections I also was astounded by Pulitzer s ability to conduct an active almost dictatorial reign on his newspapers while going blin [...]

    I found this book quite an enjoyable read It is very well researched and the writing was excellent and kept me drawn in despite the story being a bit long The early years are fascinating however, I found that once Pulitzer had established his life, the story became a bit repetitive focusing on his battles with aristocratic Americans and corrupt politicians Nevertheless it portrays an interesting time period in history My favourite parts were the stories of stunt journalism tricks he played in th [...]

    I enjoyed the format of this Biography of Joseph Pulitzer His life was cleverly set against the background of History due to the World coverage of his newspapers I learned many interesting facts about the man behind the Pulitzer prizes Two things really intrigued me How he dealt with his deteriorating eyesight and eventual blindness and secondly the description of his secretaries who helped him deal with his condition The book made me wonder if I would have met the qualifications to be one of th [...]

    An APL Recycled Reads find A very well written and very readable biography of a brilliant and complex individual It is a fascinating look into American life and politics of the period through the eyes of Pulitzer as told by Brian I enjoyed it very much.

  8. Shannon

    Fascinating book about a fascinating man and his path I cannot fathom overcoming so much and making such a great impact on society along the way.

  9. Amber Seah

    Very useful book for anyone researching New York or Journalism in the late 19th century I especially like that the chapters are by year so it is easy to look up what was happening when Pulitzer was a fascinating man of contradictions.
