Off Camera: Private Thoughts Made Public - Ted Koppel In 1999, Koppel kept a diary. These are notes from each day of the year. We learn a bit about his personal background, how he reacts to the events of the day, occasional musings about this and that. It does provide a little insight into his worldview, professional ethics, that sort of thing. It also contains some interesting tales of days in the field in far off places, but overall, I found this a disappointing book. It could have been so much more. It is not a bad book, just a very limited one. But there are a fair number of quotable lines in it.
