A Wall Street Journal Review of the Book by R. Emmett Tyrrell Titled “How Do We Get Out of Here? Half a Century of Laughter and Mayhem at The American Spectator—From Bobby Kennedy to Donald Trump”

From a Wall Street Journal book review by Barton Swaim headlined “‘How Do We Get Out of Here?’ Review: An Alternative Viewpoint”:

‘Of all the virtues, humility is the one that I have never quite gotten the hang of.” So writes R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., founder and longtime editor of the American Spectator magazine, in his memoir, “How Do We Get Out of Here?” He’s right. No one has ever accused him of modesty, and no one ever will. The book is irreverent, discursive, intermittently hilarious, gossipy, spiteful, penetrating on political topics, and zealous in its admiration of R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.
