Dispatches from the Edge: a Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival (2006)

- Few people have witnessed more scenes of chaos and conflict around the world than Anderson Cooper, whose groundbreaking coverage on CNN has changed the way we watch the news. In this gripping, candid, and remarkably powerful memoir, he offers an unstinting, up-close view of the most harrowing crises of our time, and the profound impact they have had on his life.

We are not showing pictures or video of grieving families [of MH370 passengers]. We all know what grief looks like.

It is in the family that we learn almost all we ever know of loving. In my sons’ youth, their promise, their possibilities, my stake in immortality is invested.

Khalil Abdallah: Our last show in Kiev. Heading home.

I’m not a big believer in telling people what they should think or care about. People can decide for themselves. I’m not going to tell them to eat their broccoli. People have a lot of stuff, enough stuff, going on in their lives for me to tell them that. My job is to accurately describe what a place is like, what people are going through, and let [viewers] make up their own minds. As a storyteller, I know the best stories, like Africa or Sarajevo or Haiti, are the ones where you step out of the way and let the stories, the voices, the sounds tell it. It’s all happening in front of you.
