Coffee Table Book: The Last Editor

Originally published at

picture-10What goes better with a strong cup of joe than a good book. My most recent book is the memoir of Jim Bellows, “The Last Editor“. It took about four pots of coffee from start to finish, but it was a straight read.

Jim Bellows does a great job of recounting the most memorable highlights during his career as a newspaper editor. Throughout the book, Bellows emphasizes overcoming obstacles and succeeding in spite of being the “underdog.”

Bellows mentions repeatedly how his slightly different approach to journalism — often controversial — helped him stick out from the crowd. I would suggest any entrepreneur or recent college graduate grab a cup of joe and read this book. Bellows constant reminder of hard work, dedication, persistence, and belief in a great cause is inspirational but down to earth.

Plain Joe gives ‘The Last Editor’ a full cup!
