Overview

Larry King provides dozens of tips that will help you master the art of conversation in both social and professional settings. He shows you how to break the ice with strangers, what to say at a wedding or a funeral, and how to sell yourself to a prospective employer—or interview a prospective employee. He gives his secrets for how to survive if you have to appear on radio or television, and how to recover from making a blooper. He illustrates his points with a wealth of examples from his own experience, and tells you what makes Frank Sinatra and Bill Clinton good conversationalists (and some other celebrities poor ones). With "How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere," you, too, can learn to communicate with the assurance and ease that has made Larry King famous as a master of good talk.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
King, host of CNN's Larry King Live, here sets out to instruct readers on how to talk confidently and effectively in a variety of situations, such as job interviews, business presentations, social events and even discussions with one's spouse. Shyness and ``bloopers'' can be turned into assets, comments King, who relates how he clammed up the first time he was on a radio show. By openly admitting his nervousness, he claims he disarmed his listeners. Filled with practical advice, amusing anecdotes and a chapter on his ``best and worst guests,'' this self-help guide, written with freelancer Gilbert, will be a hit with King devotees. Fortune Book Club selection; BOMC and QPB alternates; author tour. (Nov.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
You might not be as smooth a talker as King after finishing this book, but it doesn't hurt to try. King, who has talked to everyone from Gorbachev to Michael Jackson, tells us how he does it.
