Nice review in O'Dwyers:

"Former Washington Post Metropolitan Editor Harry Rosenfeld’s new memoir From Kristallnacht to Watergate is an uplifting personal story and a clear-eyed look at the craft and business of journalism... In an era of Twitter and blogs, this book is a history lesson on the development and production of several influential newspapers."

"Harry Rosenfeld tells his story in an earnest way, without waxing nostalgic about the 'good old days.' His life began under tyranny and he availed himself of the freedoms under the First Amendment to hold the powerful to account for their actions. This memoir is a success story that is not boastful, but the culmination of a career of commitment to one’s craft."
