Reviews

[Rusbridger] has written a book of breathtaking range . . . The brilliant Breaking News is essential - and entertaining - reading -- SIR HAROLD EVANS * * Observer * *
I particularly enjoyed Alan Rusbridger's Breaking News - in places it's as exciting as a thriller (and the good guys win) but it also gave me a new understanding of the difficulties that now confront good journalism -- HENRY MARSH * * New Statesman, Best Books of 2018 * *
Just when we were feeling lost in the dark labyrinth of fake news and journalism in crisis, Alan Rusbridger lights his torch and leads the way. Essential -- STEVE COOGAN
The book [Rusbridger] has written is eloquent in its argument for well-resourced journalism, and never better than in its central narrative of how an old profession struggled to cope with a new technology that threatened it with obsolescence -- IAN JACK * * Guardian * *
It was my good luck - and the world's - that Alan Rusbridger was the Guardian's editor when powerful governments tried to prevent the paper from revealing that they had deceived and disempowered their citizens. Alan is a fearless defender of the public interest who has had a singular career in journalism. His book is an urgent reminder that there is still a place for real journalism - indeed, our democracies depend on it -- EDWARD SNOWDEN
A fascinating book and an important one * * Scotsman * *
Engaging . . . We love a good newspaper yarn, and Rusbridger provides a dandy * * Financial Times * *
Alan Rusbridger is one of the most important journalists of his generation . . . this book needs to be read * * Independent * *
Not all editors are able to write well. Rusbridger can and he tells the story of his tenure with wit, candour and insight . . . At times this book reads like a thriller . . . Rusbridger knows more than most and this book is often funny, occasionally frightening and always informative * * Prospect * *
Engaging, informed and readable . . . a right riveting read, as we say in the trade * * Herald * *
