Overview


Truth Be Told is a revealing and irresistibly entertaining look back on Larry's remarkable run at CNN, and an honest look at Larry's own life behind the scenes. After more than a half-century of asking questions, Larry King suddenly found everyone wanted answers from him. Was Larry King Live, CNN's highest rated program, ending after three decades? Was Larry getting divorced again? The paparazzi aimed their cameras at Larry. Jay Leno and other late-night talk-show hosts were having fun at his expense. And a cloud of uncertainty hovered over CNN. All of this forced Larry to look at changes in all aspects of his life, ultimately leading to his decision to leave Larry King Live and devote more time to his marriage and children.

Larry reflects on how much the world has changed around him over the course of his fifty-year career, and he has a lot to say about everything and everyone: from marriage, politics, sports, entertainment, to the justice system, broadcasting, and the American future. Truth Be Told is a candid and surprising look inside the monumental career of one of the most powerful and legendary talk-show hosts as he signs off from the nightly television program that has been close to all of our hearts.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

On May 1st, 1957, the abrupt departure of a Miami radio announcer gave a young man named Larry Zeigner his break. From that now historic day, the Brooklyn-born man now known as Larry King began an astonishing media career that didn't until last December. In this new memoir, the star of CNN's most-watched and longest-running (1985-2010) show finally stops asking questions and begins answering them. Everything you wanted to know about Larry, his many marriages and equally numerous candid opinions.

    Highly Recommended

    I enjoyed reading this book! It madre me laugh -a lot-, and it made me cry a few times. Larry King is as good a writer as he is a show host. I really respect the way he humanizes himself and some of his guests, never invading his or their privacy. It's a brear book!
