remain silent and be presumed a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt The basics of successful conversation Honesty The right attitude The will to talk even when it might be uncomfortable The will to improve your talking ability and the will to work hard at it Int KNOWLEDGE I GAINED FROM THIS BOOK Most of us have the fear of saying the wrong thing while speaking and so avoid talking overall This fear is described beautifully in this quote, It is better to remain silent and be presumed a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt The basics of successful conversation Honesty The right attitude The will to talk even when it might be uncomfortable The will to improve your talking ability and the will to work hard at it Interest in the other person Openness about yourself The golden rule Do unto others as you would have them do unto you You should be willing to reveal the kind of information that you would ask of another person People you re talking to will enjoy the conversationif they see you are presenting yourself as someone who is enjoying it It will help you to overcome shyness when talking to strangers if you remember that the person you re talking to is probably just as shy as you are Breaking the ice with someone you are talking for the first time get them on comfortable ground Ask them about themselves That will give you something to talk about and also people love to be talked to about themselves It is the thing that are closest to a person that make them open up the most Remember that the people you are talking to areinterested in themselves and their wants and problems than they are in you and your problems If you re at a party in someone s home, or an office, there are likely to be furnishings or mementos that your hosts will cheerfully talk about Avoid yes no questions One tip is to ask questions using what do you think LISTEN Careful listening makes you better able to respond Good follow up questions are the mark of a good conversationalist You can lean slightly forward toward the person you are speaking to, to emphasize that you are focusing on them You don t need to stare continuously in the other person s eyes Many find that uncomfortable Maintain eye contact when your conversation partner is talking and when you are asking a question If you re speaking, you can take your eyes off your partner occasionally However, don t stare off into space And if you re at a party, don t let your eyes wander over your partner s shoulder as if you re looking for someoneimportant to talk to Stay informed and Stay current This will help a lot because you have to relate what you re talking about to the interests of the person you re talking to Today, the key word in being successful in your social conversation is RELEVENCE In cocktail parties, look for someone to have a one on one conversation with Or else, join others in conversations already under way that sound interesting If the other person is not interested in the subjects that interest you, excuse yourself politely Then move on There s bound to be someone else in the room who sfun for you to talk to One trick is not to get caught in the same place for a long period of time WHY It is the greatest question to ask and it is the surest way of keeping a conversation lively and interesting Good Exit lines This food is delicious I m going to go help myself to seconds Would you excuse me I m going to go say hello to our host or to a friend Well, I guess I d better go and mingle someIt is important not to make too much of your exit Don t spend the minute beforehand glancing around the room desperately or be too apologetic Just wait for a slight pause, say something polite, and move on as if it s a natural thing to do Simply saying It was nice talking to you and turning away can be graceful enough, as long as you sound as though you actually did enjoy the conversation If you are leading a conversation choose a topic that will involve everybody Solicit opinions Don t just offer your opinions You ll be remembered as a better conversationalist if you ask the opinions of others around you What do you think Help the shyest person in the group Don t monopolize the conversation Keep your own stories brief The other extreme is just as bad being so short on words that people think either you re not bright enough to say much or you re an unfriendly person WHAT IF questions are a can t miss way of starting a conversation in a social setting or picking it up during a lull Allow people to sit close together If you re having four people for dinner, don t use your grandmother s gigantic table that seats twelve Lol At funerals, comments such as, This is such a tragedy or It s a terrible loss imply that the level of their grief is yours to gauge, which it s not One thing you can do is share a favorite memory of yours involving the deceased Celebrities enjoy normal conversations Approach them not as famous people but just as people who have the same likes, dislikes and feelings like the rest of us If you happen to know about the celebrity s extracurricular interest, you might find they will speak to you about it muchfreely than they would about their professional life Most successful people are successful talkers Never stay too serious too long HUMOR Professional comedians know that timing is everything, and bringing everything to a halt so that you can tell your joke is bad timing Even if you heard a hilarious joke at the office, don t interrupt a conversation in progress just so you can tell it Never introduce humor with any of these lines Let me tell you a little joke A funny thing happened to me on my way here today Here s a good joke You re going to love it It s really funny This reminds me of a little joke NOTHING WORDS Words and noises that add nothing to what we are trying to say Acts as oral crutches Example you know, basically, hopefully, whatever, like, uh and um Hopefully doesn t mean I hope when you say, Hopefully, the meeting will be held Thursday, you re really saying the meeting will be held Thursday in an atmosphere of hope Leave the nothing words out of your conversations If you are worried about political correctness, if what you are going to say seems safe, then go along Business basics Time is money so don t waste the time of the people you are talking to Don t talk about the last night s ball game until the end of your one on one lunch and then try to cram the real purpose of the meeting into a hurried 5 minute discussion And don t try to be the life of the meeting with a long monologue when everybody else is anxious to get down to business Know what you re talking about, and be prepared Remember also what the other person wants and needs to know Art of Selling Two rules of sales Know what you re selling and once you ve closed the deal don t keep selling Sell the advantage of the product, not the features of the product Example Don t talk about the premiums and payouts of the insurance policy Talk about the security your client will feel and about the gratitude of his or her spouse and children in knowing that the cornerstone of their financial future is in place Selling yourself Show prospective employers what you can do for them What do you bring that s unique Don t tell the person interviewing you what s on your resume, which they ve already read Tell them instead how you are going to do this job better than anyone else will Maintain an open attitude Don t be so businesslike demeanor that you stifle your openness Be prepared Ask questions Ask intelligent questions this will show that you are prepared and you care Don t make it appear that you reinterested in your own clever questions than you are in hearing and reacting to the responses Approach your boss in an open manner using the two word Help me Tips from getting information from famous people If what you need from someone is simple information, talk to that person s assistant first The assistance can often pull a file or make an appointment quicker than the boss Why leave a message for the boss to call you back when you are asking questions that the boss can refer to the assistant Asking the assistant saves all three of you some time and gets you the information earlier in your day In a meeting, if you re not involved in a topic under discussion, avoid the temptation to jump into the conversation just for the sake of being noticed It s much better to have a reputation as someone who talks only when it counts than to be known as someone who has to put in his two cents worth on every subject When you are running a meeting Start on time Be decisive You ve established what the issues are The last two questions for each item are What action is to be taken, and who s going to do it If you leave this vague, there was no point in having the meeting in the first place Be firm Don t let others waste time or try to score points on each other Just say, Sorry, Pete we have to move on to the next item There is no reason for you to be afraid of seeming bossy Ways of getting out of answering a question It would be premature for me to answer that question now I m not able to answer that question because I haven t seen the report yet The incident has become the subject of a court case, so I can t comment on it One bad answer for news interview is No comment It might imply you are guilty Know your audience

    Useless book, does not live up to it s title It is filled with Larry s self promotion and name dropping stories Larry just tells us what a great guy he is, and how cool he is because he talked to all those important people, and all that in a fairly unstructured way No actual advise on communicating, no lessons that you could expect form a king of interviews.

    This is not a good self help book, contrary to what it s title suggests Larry King takes his experience in radio and tv presentation, derives lessons that he himself learnt from them and presents them to the reader As a result, How tos are not presented in a very clear chronological way but rather a la Aesop s fables It s got a stronger bent towards how to do public speaking , be it speaking to large crowds or on tv radio because that s where his experience lies For the layman, it honestly This is not a good self help book, contrary to what it s title suggests Larry King takes his experience in radio and tv presentation, derives lessons that he himself learnt from them and presents them to the reader As a result, How tos are not presented in a very clear chronological way but rather a la Aesop s fables It s got a stronger bent towards how to do public speaking , be it speaking to large crowds or on tv radio because that s where his experience lies For the layman, it honestly isn t very useful, I wouldn t even read it as a basic first book to a whole string of communication books that you might start on And there s a whole chapter dedicated to the worst guests on his talk shows and why I mean, what the hell was that for If I wasn t so bored as to read this on a 3 hr plane ride, I wonder whether I would have had the strength to complete this

    Didn t do what it said on the tin While championing all his rich and famous friends for their skills in conversation and oratory, King ironically comes across as an insufferable bore The book lacks any consistent structure a paragraph named how to talk at a funeral was immediately followed by how to talk to celebrities and offers very little practical advice beopen it s that easy Rather than including implementable exercises or techniques to slowly improve the way you speak, Didn t do what it said on the tin While championing all his rich and famous friends for their skills in conversation and oratory, King ironically comes across as an insufferable bore The book lacks any consistent structure a paragraph named how to talk at a funeral was immediately followed by how to talk to celebrities and offers very little practical advice beopen it s that easy Rather than including implementable exercises or techniques to slowly improve the way you speak, each loose theme suggestion is lost in a stream of dull, often contradictory and sometimes dubious celebrity fables These seem to be designed to give shout outs to his mates and it gets very tiresome very quickly Would not recommend

    Larry King obviously knows what he s talking about At no point of this book did I feel bored or that he was repeating himself, and for a book about talking and the art of conversing, this is the perfect testimony to its success I found the book very useful, and the advice it offered was practical and straight forward, although my first thought was that reading a book on how to talk to people is kind of pathetic, but that was an oversimplification It s a book on how to hold a conversation and Larry King obviously knows what he s talking about At no point of this book did I feel bored or that he was repeating himself, and for a book about talking and the art of conversing, this is the perfect testimony to its success I found the book very useful, and the advice it offered was practical and straight forward, although my first thought was that reading a book on how to talk to people is kind of pathetic, but that was an oversimplification It s a book on how to hold a conversation and how to connect to people, in social life, in business, in the media, etc And the biggest takeaway, as Larry himself sums is up at the conclusion of the book, is that talking should not be dealt with as an obligation but rather as a pleasure, an opportunity, which I think we now needthan ever at this time and age where we re constantly talking even when we re alone frantically typing on our phones, and when we feel that we re losing touch with certain people, with whom we have less and less in common, so it s useful to remember that talking is actually a way to connect with another human being, we just have to be willing to try

    The title should be , Larry King and his ways on how to talk to anyone The title is misleading, i thought i would be able to get some points from this book but i can hardly relate to it Not everyone is a radio host and goes to business meetings or have friends that are businessmen This is all about him and his job and experiences.

    I think this book was an entertaining experience , written by a media icon.
