In this volume, Cooke reports on a varied selection of events, including the 1992 presidential election, the art of Charles Schulz and introducing Bernstein to Handel's Messiah. He remembers the infamous standoff over Cuba, which nearly caused a third world war, and recalls the more recent shocking events surrounding September 11th 2001 and the subsequent 'war on terror'.
