Editorial Reviews

From Publishers 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.

From 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.

I enjoyed this book - it is clear, concise, and an easy read.

Happened to borrow this book from library one month ago and keep on reading several pages a day.

Larry King knows how to talk, but that doesn't mean he knows how to teach.

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book because I have a problem with conversations. I have difficulty talking to people if I don't know them very well. That's one problem, but the real reason I read this book was my other problem: thinking of things to say with people I do know. Larry King (the king of talking) addresses the first problem, but not the second. He gives tips and techniques about how to talk to strangers and how to speak in a business setting. This advice is valuable. There were tips that I found useful, but as a whole, this book did not address what I needed.
Fortunately, this was an interesting book to read as King gives examples and illustrations from his own life and career. He explains things clearly and if I would have been reading this to help me converse with strangers, there would have been more value in reading this book. If you are thinking about reading this book for being able to converse with strangers, I would give this book a try. If you are looking at it for my reason, skip it and try something else.

I felt like I was reading an autobiography about Larry King's rise from obscurity to fame. That's all well and good, but please don't Camouflage the true nature of this book behind a title promoting "how - to". With any book, however, there is the occasional tidbit that you can use.

I was hoping to learn "how to talk to anyone, anytime, anywhere" but the book doesn't tell you much about it. Rather, the book talks about Larry himself, his rise and fall... I was so disappointed. I read the book half-way and quit as I don't want to waste my time on it. I guess his show would be better but I'd never watch that anyway. If you are looking for learning something from this book, don't buy this unless you expected to read a bibiography of Larry King.

Format: Paperback
This book is enternaining in places, but not particularly helpful in my opinion. Larry King is a master of the bold, rapid-fire question type of interview. In this book, though, he talks about celebrities like himself, with whom he is on first name terms. That's fine for him, but there's not much here that I can use.

This is a book about how to do interview and things like that. Larry King is world reknown and i m quite dissapointed to see his books. His real strength is the ability to ask question that is sharp and timely, plus his wide knowledge of any subjects. But the book did not show much nor will it trains you in anyway toward those things. Tanadi Santoso. 12/97.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good time killer. You don't have to read it straight on through because there are different sections to it. It took me about 3 weeks to read this book.

In 'How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere, author, Larry King, tells us his secrets to good communication. Although he does share some good advice, it's mostly what we already know. Some of the things he talks about, such as: body language, eye contact, listening,etc., is something we are already aware of; we just forget to use them.

This book didn't so much as provide me with a lot of new information, but it reminded me of the important things i have forgotten. Not only that, it gave me confidence to improve in areas I know that I am not good at.

Would you rather go to the dentist or have to give a speech? If you answered honestly, you'd rather get a filling, an extraction and a root canal than to speak in front of an audience. The truth is at some point in our lives we all will have to speak in front of a group. If you're a Communications Major, like me, that day is coming sooner than you think. Unless you hit a big lottery jackpot, you will someday have to interview with a prospective employer for a position. We all will be guest at a social gathering, and whether it's large or small there will be conversation. Everyone experiences nervousness when speaking to strangers...by following the basic tips Larry gives in this book your next public communication experience will be less stressful, you will appear more confident at your next job interview and make a better impresion at your next social gathering. After reading this book, I realize that talking/communicating is essential. According to Larry, no matter the event the principles of conversation are the same:be open,find the common ground with your partner and always listen. These basic tips will have you communicating effectively, professionally and with confidence. The only thing separating good communication and bad communication is the desire to have it...basically speaking.

This book provides some good tips, but they are not particularly insightful. Larry King treats his readers as extremely shy ppl or those who cannot even strike a conversation with a stranger. I think anyeone with average social skills would already know most of the things mentioned in his book.

On the other hand, I highly recommend Dale Carnegie's how to win friends and influence ppl. Definitely more insightful.
