The Best and the Brightest (1962), his sixth book, a critique of the Kennedy administrations Vietnam policy, became a 1 bestseller.

His next book, The Powers that Be, a study of four American media companies, was hailed by The New York Times as a prodigy of research.

In 1999s Playing for Keeps Michael Jordan and the World He Made, Halberstam documented the making of a legend. Always happy to extend his reach well beyond the subject at hand, Halberstam packed his books with social commentary as well as sports detail. His writing routine was as strenuous and disciplined as that of any of the athletes he wrote about.

To sustain his steady output of extensively researched, almost-always-massive books, he allows no unscheduled interruptions Most of us who have survived here New York after a number of years have ironclad work rules. Nothing interrupts us. Nothing, he once wrote in The New York Times.
