Bill Moyers Journal

A Sampling of Media Coverage of Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues by Bill Moyers (The New Press, 2011)

“In an era of much instant and ephemeral talk, it is a pleasurable thing to hold this ‘book of ideas.’ These challenging, engaged conversations reward the reader’s serious attention.” Publishers Weekly

“Moyers probes with respect, intelligence, curiosity, humor, and graciousness…this companion book recaptures those compelling discussions on issues that matter.” Booklist starred review

“Focusing on topics both timely and timeless…the insatiably curious Moyers prods disparate intellectuals into candid talk about their sphere of interest. Glittering array of discussions.” Kirkus Reviews

“Readers of his new book will feast on four dozen wide-ranging conversations…which brim with big ideas and deep insights. Provocative, absorbing and necessary.” Star Tribune
