It is staggering to think of how many important historical and cultural figures Mike Wallace has interviewed over the course of his legendary career. With great humor and insight, he recalls his encounters with such luminaries as Eleanor Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Yassir Arafat, Frank Lloyd Wright, Salvador Dali, Barbara Streisand, Tina Turner, and many more. From his early days, Wallace displayed a no--holds--barred interviewing technique that distinguished him from his colleagues and earned him many accolades -- but also often got him in hot water with his subjects and with his corporate bosses. In this remarkable book, BETWEEN YOU AND ME, he reveals the story behind the story: what happened off--camera before, during, and after his most famous interviews.
