I picked up Truth Be Told without a lot of expectations. I've never been a huge Larry King fan, but I have watched his show on and off for years and thought it would be interesting, at the very least. I have to say that I was delighted with this book. It reads just like King speaks and is truly enchanting in that it feels like King has sat down to have a converstaion with you.

There are a lot of great, fun ancedotes about famous people from all walks of life, along with some personal observations and opinions about American politics, entertainment, etc. that I believe at 77 years old, King has a right to share. I was fascinated by all this man has seen and all the people he has known/interviewed since starting his first radio show in 1957. He gives a hat-tip to Jackie Gleason for helping him become the big name he is.

It was also very intersting to read how broadcasting has changed since cable networks have entered the scene. He was being asked to do tabloid type stuff and he wasn't comfortable with that, especially after having had a taste of that in his own personal life. He makes a strong case for what is news and what isn't, and unless you're an elected official, personal lives should be off-limits unless a person decides to share and/or come clean about personal matters. I admire him for not wanting to delve into personal matters unless invited to do so. And it does cause serious thought about the future of "news" broadcasting with the further addition of the Internet.

Above all things, this is a fun book to read. I loved it! King is an excellent storyteller and, boy, does this man have stories to tell! I would love to hear more of them. I love the idea of him doing a stand-up comedy routine.

I read Larry King's book in one sitting. I kept hearing his gravelly voice in my head. Larry's career spans so many years, he had stories from old Hollywood, such as Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, George Burns, Marlon Brando to current stars. Some of the stories were very funny & clever. Larry has really interviewed a lot of interesting people. His story of interviewing Marlon Brando was fascinating. Marlon also wanted to do an interview on the roof where both of them were nude. Now that would have been worthwhile. Mr. King had several insider stories about Frank Sinatra that were interesting. There was a pie throwing incident I won't spoil. Larry talks a bit off & on about his divorce proceedings with his wife Shawn that were called off. He acts like it was front page news. I totally do not recall any of this, but I guess maybe somebody cared enough to stalk him with cameras. I enjoyed all of the book except Mr. King's several digs at Fox News. I get that he hates the competition, but the digs were rather juvenile & uncalled for. Apparently Larry & Bill O'Reilly will never go out for a drink anytime soon...I get that Larry is a liberal, but what do the digs at conservatives and the tea party have to do with a book about his favorite guests? These political digs that were inserted throughout the book for no particular reason made me enjoy the book a lot less. In fairness, he did say George W. Bush was classy in the manner he left the White House. This is the only polite or positive thing I recall Larry saying about anybody Republican. Given that Larry's whole reputation was for "softball" polite questioning, jumping on the tea party and conservatives so harshly & out of context seems rather odd. Like his ghost writer just stuck the references in for personal reasons.

Picture yourself having a cup of coffee with Larry King. There the two of you are sipping coffee and Larry recounting all the interviews he has done and his thoughts on current events. I've always said, Larry King and Ronald Reagan have lead perhaps the most interesting lives of anyone. Sure sports stars and others in the entertainment industry have had fascinating lives but Larry King is one who has gone from rags to riches. He has met with such a cross variety of people and has gotten them to reveal there inner most thoughts and he's never changed who he is really is -- he has stayed true to himself and that's what makes him great and there will never be anyone else like him. His type of show has been replaced by reality shows and self serving political shows. In truth, Anderson Cooper is the next best Larry King. Side note: Anderson Cooper's book is tremendous -- his has seen things that are unbelievable. The biggest problem with Truth Be Told is that it was too damn short. This book could easily be volume one. It is a very quick read, one that will have the reader laughing out loud. 5 Stars for Larry and I truly hope the best is yet to come.
