How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: The Secrets of Good Communication
"How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: The Secrets of Good Communication" by Larry King
Larry King, well-known host of CNN's Larry King Live, is probably one of the best known, if not the most respected, interviewers today. I found his book to be a collection of useful tips on how to communicate and talk to people, not only in professional, but also in personal situations.
He covers such varied topics as how to start conversations, public speaking, and job interviews. The book is also full of anecdotes of his personal experiences in social situations as well as while filming his talk show...
Some find talking to others uncomfortable, difficult, or intimidating. Here is a way to overcome these communication challenges. HOW TO TALK TO ANYONE, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE is the key to building confidence and improving communication skills. Written by Larry King, this guide provides simple and practical advice to help make communication easier, more successful, and even more enjoyable. Anecdotes from a life spent talking--on television, radio, and in person,--add to the fun and value of the book. Learn what famous talkers say and how the way they say it makes them so successful.

Larry King says: "Talking is like playing golf, driving a car, or owning a store - the more you do it, the better you get at it, and the more fun you have doing it. But you have to understand the fundamentals first.
It's true that talking has come naturally to me, but even those who have a natural ability for something have to work to develop it. That's what turns a talent into a skill."
