Publisher's Summary

As host of Larry King Live, one of the most popular daily forums for political news and commentary, Larry King has asked probing questions of North America's movers and shakers: the major world leaders, politicians, pundits, spin doctors, and reporters who are directly involved with the North American scene.

Now, in Anything Goes!, King takes an in-depth look at how North America, through the prism of the electronic and print media, has gotten to the point where it is today. Bi-partisan politics, bimbo eruptions, grandstanding in Congress, backstabbing tactics, and more are covered in this fascinating and revealing memoir of the last decade.

It's Larry King at his best, including inside political stories and anecdotes never before reported anywhere. Since its 1985 debut, Larry King Live has consistently been CNN's highest-rated program. Viewers in more than 170 million households from 210 countries and territories worldwide tune in regularly.

What would have made Anything Goes! better?

Delivery was rushed and garbled, and his stories weren't told with context or flair. I really liked "My Remarkable Journey" so go with that one.

Nothing to do with the Title

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

the title suggests that Larry is going to summarize the wisdom that he got from all the successful people he interviewed . which would have been an amazing book to listen to.instead i got a simple reciting of some historical incidences , some are totally useless others entertaining but definitely not educational . mix in some self grandiosity temper it with some self deprecation and u get a book ? this was a great disappointment

What was most disappointing about Larry King’s story?

so not represented in the title

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Larry King?

he is a good narrator

Any additional comments?
