Publisher's Summary

In Good Day!: The Paul Harvey Story, author Paul J. Batura follows the remarkable life of one of the founding fathers of the news media. Paul Harvey started his career during the Great Depression and narrated America's story day by day, through wars and peace, the threat of communism and the crumbling of old colonial powers, consumer booms and eventual busts. Whether he was covering racial tensions, terrorist attacks, or which vitamins to take, Paul Harvey articulated the American experience for average people making their way in a world too large for quick comprehension. Harvey brought them that world "in dime store words," with a deep sense of optimism, faith, and patriotism. Featuring a foreword by Mike Huckabee, Good Day! is the only biography of its kind; Good Day! is Harvey's story, the rest of the story, as he would tell it himself.


What the Critics Say

"Harvey's legacy couldn't be in more capable hands." (Dr. James Dobson, National Radio Hall of Fame broadcaster and founder of Focus on the Family)
"Beyond the story of a life well-lived, Good Day! captures the essence of this late radio pioneer. Mr. Harvey embodied our common American ideals." (Mike Huckabee, FOX News political commentator and former governor of Arkansas)
"Paul Harvey: a voice of reason, a voice of common sense, an eloquent spokesman for the America and the Americans he loved. Open this book and read 'the rest of the story.'" (Ben Stein, author, actor, economist, and journalist)

Should have been better

I have been a huge Paul Harvey fan since I was a kid. I like biographies. This instead of delving deep into Harvey's life this book seemed more like a report a college student would write. It's nice knowing what the weather was like on his first day of work but I would have rather had more insight from friends and family.

What wonderful story of 2 people - Paul and Angel.

The reader's style is a little monotonous but I still thorouhgly enjoyed the story of Paul, his wife Angel and the history of the early days of radio and Tulsa.
