Art has a great broadcasting voice, first of all, and I enjoyed a lot of the topics his show covered. Whereas George Noory is a career broadcaster who can come across as being rather inauthentic, Art was more of a "regular guy" who happened to have a radio show.
I was looking for some light reading recently and ordered "The Art of Talk." I enjoyed reading about Art's difficult upbringing under *two* military parents, his career in the Air Force, and his early days in radio broadcasting before Coast to Coast.
Art had some interesting things to say about Americans and their future (this was written in 1998): "America has become soft. We have had it too good, for too long."........and: "I do not see a good future for America, at least the way it is headed right now......Most Americans are in denial about a lot of things. Most of us have our heads in the sand economically, politically, and socially. We are experiencing a rapid deterioration in each of these areas."
I think most Art Bell fans would enjoy reading "The Art of Talk."
It came in a day ago and I burned through it very quickly. Jumping around Art's life from the horse's mouth was a fascinating experience that really can't be adequately described here. I encourage anyone even moderately interested in learning more about Art Bell to pick up this lovely book and ready away.
TL:DR Awesome book, will definitely read through again.
