Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney

10 Nov

“Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney” by Piers Morgan covers the start of his career at CNN taking over from Larry King.  How he found his feet as a CNN host, and how he found his passionate cause in gun control.

A brilliant, no holds barred, in your face book, that is entertaining, thought provoking, and shocking in equal measure.

Highly recommended, regardless of where you stand on gun control.  In fact, the gun control issue doesn’t come into it until quite late in the book, given that the book is written in diary format.  I like this format from Piers.  It makes it easier to see the linear progression of his experiences.

Piers Morgan writes like he speaks, full of fire, passion, and self deprecating humour.

The fact that I remember all the events Piers talks about gave the book real resonance to me.
