9780446525282: Anything Goes!: What I've Learned from Pundits, Politicians, and Presidents

As host of Larry King Live -- one of the most popular daily forums for political news and commentary -- King has used his show to ask probing questions of the pundits, spin doctors, major politicians, and the reporters who are directly involved with the passing - American scene.

In "Anything Goes!", King will take a long and in-depth look at how our America -- through the prism of the electronic and print media -- has gotten to the point where it is today. Bipartisan politics, bimbo eruptions, grandstanding in Congress, backstabbing tactics -- and more -- it's the stuff of our daily headlines, whether we like it or not.

In sum, expect Larry King at his best -- with inside political stories and anecdotes never before reported anywhere.

From AudioFile:

Larry King has a way of growing on you. His manner is not so much ingratiating as gossipy--the style of a gruff, but beloved, uncle. He works hard, talks to many different people, and LISTENS to their answers. The result is this insightful look at the Washington of the 1990s and the rise of an "anything goes" culture in politics and the media. King doesn't profess to know the answers, but he asks the right questions and provides a wealth of asides, anecdotes, and transcripts of on-camera exchanges. The one flaw with this program is that King sometimes flubs reading his own words. T.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Booklist:

Larry King has been something of a Zelig during the years of his CNN television program, popping up in the middle of whatever crisis was riveting viewers to their screens: the O. J. trial, the Lewinsky scandal, the death of JFK Jr. Since King (and his panel of talking heads) is ubiquitous during the playing out of all the big stories, it would follow that he might be able to bring some particular insight into the events and the players involved. Apparently not. King takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the last eight years or so and manages to add absolutely nothing to the big picture. Covering himself in his familiar mantel of humble Brooklyn boy made good, King seems to take particular pride in pointing out, at almost every opportunity, that he has no news sense. His first look at Bill Clinton? "Keep your day job, pal." The O. J. case: "I knew one thing: while it was a major homicide case, it was going to be a two, maybe three-day story." If the book fails to give us the big picture, however, it does add details to the small picture. Like King's USA Today column, his latest tome is a name-dropper's delight, and followers of the show who saw the Gore-Perot debate or the infamous interviews with Marlon Brando will enjoy the behind-the-scenes look at the action. The title refers to how the world has loosened up in the last decade or so, but it could apply equally to the rise of Larry King. Ilene Cooper
