Inside The Founding Of Newsweek: How a Hot-Tempered, One-Legged R.A.F. Pilot Launched an American Media Giant by Thomas J. C. Martyn

A former wartime pilot and Time magazine's first foreign editor, Thomas J. C. Martyn had a vision: to establish a weekly news magazine that would rival Time, which in the 1930s was the only magazine of its kind in the United States. Martyn succeeded--so resoundingly that Newsweek has prospered for over 80 years, first as a stalwart of print media and now in the digital era, as well. Newsweek was Martyn's brainchild, brought to life through his own perseverance and ingenuity. In this memoir he draws a vivid picture of his efforts to get Newsweek off the ground including his meetings with powerful men such as President Roosevelt and Henry Ford. This classic entrepreneur's story reveals the struggles and triumphs of getting a national magazine off the ground during the depths of the Great Depression. One man's pursuit of his dream meets the tumultuous era of the 1930s in a memoir which will entertain and engage Newsweek fans, entrepreneurs, and history buffs alike.
