I first read the title story in 1973. I was in high school, preparing to enter the military, and debating many great questions about the Universe and Life. "And Now The News" spoke to me on many different levels. It shaped what I chose to do in the service; become a paramedic. How I dealt with the sick and injured was informed by the character of the psychologist; arrogance and ego have no place in medicine. How we perceive each other and the world around us.
The other stories, for the most part, are a joy. Some, I hadn't read until this collection. The rest were like old friends you'd like to sit by a fire with and share a fine bourbon.
Theodore Sturgeon and his works are a treasure, not to be lightly regarded or forgotten easily.
Recommended to anyone who likes great stories as told by a master.
