About David Halberstam

David Halberstam (1934-2007) was the author of twenty-two books, including fifteen bestsellers. Born in New York City, Halberstam spent much of the 1960s as a reporter for "The New York Times," covering the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement. His Vietnam reporting earned him both a George C. Polk Award and a 1964 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. "Vanity Fair" dubbed Halberstam "the Moses of American journalism," and the subjects of his books reflect his passion and range: war, foreign policy, history, and sports. "The Best and the Brightest "(1962), his sixth book, a critique of the Kennedy administration's Vietnam policy, became a #1 bestseller. His next book, "The Powers that Be," a study of four American media companies, was hailed by "The New York Times" as a "prodigy of research." Many of Halberstam's books explored themes in professional sports, including bestsellers "The Teammates," a portrait of the friendship between baseball players Ted Williams, Dominic DiMaggio, Johnny Pesky, and Bobby Doerr, and "The Education of a Coach," a profile of New England Patriots' Coach Bill Belichick.
