Warren Phillips, former editor-in-chief of the Wall Street Journal
describes his remarkable, nearly 50-year career. This "concise, well-crafted memoir" (Library Journal
) shows how he learned the newspaper business the old-fashioned way: beginning as a copyboy in 1945, he progressed to field reporter in post-World War II Europe and continued to play a leading role in the publication's direction until his 1991 retirement as CEO of parent company, Dow Jones. Newspaperman
is a glorious, breezy insider's look at the people, events, and ideas that transformed the Wall Street Journal
from just another local into the world's premier information outlet of business and financial news.
