    For years, Dick Cavett played host to the nation’s most famous personalities on his late-night talk show. In this humorous and evocative book, we get to hear Cavett's best tales, as he recounts great moments with the legendary entertainers who crossed his path and offers his own trenchant commentary on contemporary American culture and politics.

    Martha Humphreys says: "Witty, wry and wonderfully entertaining..."
    "Exceeded My Expectations - Considerably"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Talk Show to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I have a preference for books read by the author.


    What other book might you compare Talk Show to and why?

    Since this is one of the very few memoirs I've read, it's hard to compare, although I did listen to Michael Caines most recent and Cavett's compared more than favorably.


    What does Dick Cavett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Obviously, his voice (tone, modulation, inflection, etc.)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The John Wayne segments. A pair that is hard to imagine


    Any additional comments?

    I bought the audio thinking it would be a straight forward memoir. At first I was disappointed at it being a reading of his blogs. However, after I got into the pattern, I was very pleased. As to Mr Cavett himself, I found him to be more agreeable and empathic than I thought. That said is absolute intolerance of folks addicted to food and alcohol was a bit disconcerting.
