Confessions from Correspondentland The Dangers and Delights of Life as a Foreign Correspondent Synopsis

Since making his journalistic debut breaking into Piers Morgan's office, Nick reveals how he rattled Donald Rumsfield, slept through 9/11, had tea with President Karzai, struggled into fireproof underwear, and got a free lunch out of the Tamil Tigers. Casting a sideways glance at this influential profession, its glamour, and its sometimes shady practices, Nick also provides bite-sized intelligent insight into the countries he files from.
