If you think you know the news, think again. In this behind-the-scenes, no holds barred account of life on Newsnight in the seconds before, during and after going on air, Emily Maitlis discloses the wrangling, bust-ups, blow-ups, pleading, last-second script-shreddings, scoops, walk-outs and unexpected love-ins that we never see on-screen. Covering everything from the Paris terror attacks to Grenfell, #MeToo to President Clinton's love affairs, Boris Johnson, goat yoga, and interviews with everyone from Emma Thompson and Tony Blair to Donald Trump and Russell Brand, Airhead is a brilliant expose of the moments that never make the news. 'A wonderfully sane book for our unhinged times' Simon Schama 'Vividly chronicles the pains and perils of news television' Guardian 'Emily has a style that would make you enjoy her report on the end of the world' Jeremy Vine 'Fluent, conversational and funny. Acerbic, hilarious' Evening Standard 'Searing honesty, compassion, intelligence . . . engages at every level' Daily Mail 'Irresistible. Her book's a romp' The Times

La nostra recensione

It's a brilliant, often funny, behind-the-scenes account of her working life, written by one of Britain's best television broadcasters. It proves she's far from an airhead! * John Craven * A fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into modern television news * Time & Leisure Magazine * Emily Maitlis is one of my favourite interviewers and I want to read her tales of interviewing people such as Donald Trump, Theresa May and Simon Cowell * Catriona Shearer, Sunday Mail * Emily Maitlis is a particular hero of mine . . . I know I'm in for a treat with Airhead * Gaby Huddart, Editor-in-chief, Good Housekeeping * The Newsnight presenter reads her memoirs with her usual dignified delivery . . . Her amusing, internal asides during interviews with Simon Cowell and Bill Clinton have something wonderfully gossipy about them. * Guardian, The best audiobooks of the year * We love the Maitlis * Stylist * A quick, absorbing read . . . my overriding impression is of rather breathless thoughtfulness . . . her formidable intelligence and self-deprecating awareness shine brightly * Times Higher Education * Recounts, one guest per chapter, a number of her interviews with the boldest of boldface figures . . . Entertaining * Strong Words * One of the best we've read this year . . . This insightful, hilarious and engrossing memoir from one of our most well-liked TV broadcasters takes you behind the scenes of the biggest news stories in recent years * SheerLuxe, 15 Best Beach Reads of 2019 * She offers insights into everyone from Donald Trump to Simon Cowell, showing them not just as what they represent, but as individuals with flaws and charm * The Press and Journal * She lifts the veil on the inner workings of the BBC, as she reflects on her long career as a journalist * Radio Times * A behind-the-scenes look at how news gets made * Observer * Fascinating . . . [an] excellent book * Mail on Sunday * A deliciously funny behind-the-scenes take on broadcasting and her encounters with politicians and celebrities * i * Not an autobiography but a serious book about journalism, disguised in anecdotal chapters about her encounters with the great and the good and the rather awful . . . leads the reader towards a deeper understanding of an essential part of our culture: current affairs . . . this is a book that engages at every level * Daily Mail * Smart and Broadcast News-funny, Airhead is peppered with insider anecdotes you could only pick up working on the kind of big news stories that the journalist has covered for decades * Daily Telegraph * An irreverent and amusing account of her media career * The Times, 100 Best Books for Summer * The irony of this riveting, enlightening and sometimes painfully honest book is that you couldn't meet less of an airhead than Emily Maitlis - a bold, fearless journalist, a splendidly probing and well-prepared interlocutor, and a warm, sharp and witty woman at the top of her game on and off camera. I'm just very disappointed there's only one chapter about me * Piers Morgan * Emily has a style that would make you enjoy her report on the end of the world. Absolutely irresistible * Jeremy Vine * A wonderfully sane book for our unhinged times * Simon Schama * A remarkable journey through the jungle of newsmaking. It combines razor-sharp analysis with compelling narrative drive and wit. A must-read Revelatory, riveting and frequently hilarious. A joy from beginning to end * James O'Brien * Smart, funny and brilliantly told stories about what goes on behind the scenes of television news. A joy * Elizabeth Day * Airhead is, like its author, funny, wise, self-deprecating and insightful * You Magazine * She recounts the interviews of her career, from the great, the good and the questionable, offering insights into the questions that illuminated their characters and the ones they dodged. A chapter on being the target of a stalker reveals her more vulnerable side in this compelling book * Observer * [Emily] is so absolutely of the moment, a quasi-memoir could not be better timed. Airhead is a compilation of her greatest hits. And boy are there many . . . narrated in her snappy, chatty style . . . her asides are acerbic, her observations hilarious * Evening Standard * She is a superb writer, used to throwing together pacy, engaging scripts at a second's notice. Each chapter is dedicated to one of her interviews - it is a sort of greatest-hits compilation * The Sunday Times * Maitlis paints a vivid picture of the intensity and unpredictability that come with her assignments, which punctures the perceived glamour of life reporting the news . . . Her writing is excellent: precise, economical and accessible * Guardian * Maitlis has written a deliciously funny book about the high-wire act of broadcasting and the madness that surrounds it. Lots of famous presenters have written books but Maitlis' is different . . . Irresistible. She sounds great company . . . Her book's a romp * The Times *
