Off Camera - Private thoughts made public

Audio Book on CD

Here, closely observed with an insider's eye, are all the significant matters of 1999--from the Clinton impeachment and the war in Kosovo to the transformation of the global economy, and even the phenomenon of Viagra. Here, too, are the people (both on and off camera) who made the news--from Slobodan Milosevic to Hillary Rodham Clinton to Michael Jordan to John F. Kennedy Jr.

But Koppel doesn't stop there: he uses these personalities and events as jumping-off points for other discussions. Memory takes him back to England where he lived until he was 13, to family and friends, and to memorable moments in his career of almost 40 years. He discusses racial intolerance and brutality towards homosexuals. And he examines such cultural phenomena as misleading advertising in Sunday supplements and the price paid for one of Mark McGwire's home-run balls.

Here is the voice we know from Nightline--intelligent, curious, opinionated, witty--reminding us in entertaining and thought-provoking ways that even the most public events reverberate in our private lives.
