News from No Man's Land is a brilliant interweaving of John Simpson's experiences in Afghanistan with tales from his thirty plus years of journalism. Concentrating on how news is made, how leads are followed and how, quite simply, journalists get to the often far-flung places where stories break, this is vintage Simpson. In it, he talks, too, about the pressures placed on journalists, ethical and political, from foreign governments and surprisingly often from our own. Vivid, absorbing, and written with all the care and lucidity of his trademark reporting style, this will appeal to John Simpson's many fans.
