The books offers a great overview of what moved the media during the 90ies: so, here is your entertaining history lesson - not entirely comprehensive but certainly the basics for the media small talk. He does not show off, he is honest with himself and he displays the very down-to-earth side of himself. Maybe it just lacks more wicked, unheard-of experiences that I expected to get a better rating. You got to have this "wise uncle at 9 PM EST" with him to like the book.
This book is full of fun stories of Larry King’s long career, like the one when he ran into a car and this guy came out and said, “don’t worry about it, I plan to run for president next year and need your vote,” that was a unknown John F. Kennedy. Or the time he convinced the Mayor of Miami to have his mother on his show, and he did, the former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
Most of the stories from his CNN show come from the late 80s and early 90s and you are reminded how that was a much simpler time and as we were on the dawn of the information age.
A fun read and a few gems from Larry King, this book is a fun read.
I would like to say that I enjoyed this book or at least found parts interesting or well written, but that would not be honest. I had to keep reading given it was the only book I had on a 9 hour flight. How can someone that has interviewed so many interesting and influential people over the years have this little to say? Thank goodness for the professional writer he hired or who knows if we would have even had complete sentences to read. Overall the book was dull, no insights and barely anything interesting.
