“You cannot talk to people successfully if they think you are not interested in what they have to say or you have no respect for them. ”
The book is a sneak peak into Larry King's career and his path to becoming a legendary interviewer. It also offers guidance on how to become an exceptional conversationalist.
1. People open up when they sense that you have already opened up to them. Share how you feel and think, vulnerability pays off.
2. Learning to listen well is one of the most valuable skills you can ever acquire in life.
3. You can't fake your curiosity; if you aren't genuinely interested in your conversation partner, they will feel it and so the dialogue will be average.
READ IF: You want to become a better interviewer, podcaster, or just want to have more interesting conversations with people you meet in your life.
