Summary

Here is the definitive autobiography of one of the most famous personalities in television history - an intimate, revealing, and riveting memoir that will show a Larry King the world has never known, up close and personal.For a half-century, the world's most influential figures have been telling their story to Larry King. Now the man in suspenders shares his inspiring story, from his humble roots in Depression-era Brooklyn to the heights of celebrity as host of CNN's Larry King Live.Before he befriended presidents and iconic entertainers, Larry grew up on the streets of Brooklyn, where he was known to friends as "Zeke the Greek the Mouthpiece" because he never stopped talking. Larry delves deeply into his extraordinary personal odyssey, beginning with the loss of his father at age nine. He has lost jobs, had a three-pack-a-day smoking habit, been down to his last $2 when he won an $8,000 trifecta at the racetrack, had a heart attack and quintuple bypass surgery, quit smoking, and now, at the age of 75, has recently been thrown out of a Little League game for arguing a call in defense of his nine-year-old son.Filled with delightfully evocative personal anecdotes and behind-the-scenes observations on some of our most important world figures, My Remarkable Journey will be devoured by Larry King's millions of fans worldwide.

Outstanding, fascinating, entertaining!!

What a superb listen 'my remarkable journey' turns out to be. Starting through from childhood to quadruple heart bypass operations, Larry King captivates in a totally relaxed yet riveting style. Star names are dropped like confetti throughout and I couldn't recommend this book highly enough!!

Amazingly Awesome

What a story! more folks should write stories like this, biographies of 'neighborhood' friends. Recent generations don't have the same kind of 'friends' or neighborhoods...and our recollections are clouded by 'reality' tv and electronic enhancements!

Larry's Remarkable Journey a remarkable listen

Larry King's latest book is chock full of the fascinating and personal anecdotes, adventures, and stories that accompany him from childhood to the present day and include a varied cast of family, schoolfriends, colleagues and celebrities along his journey. Alternatingly hilarious and heart-wrenching, there is plenty of food for thought here. Yet what puts this audiobook in a class of its own is King's delivery: It never once sounds like it is read, but is instead told in a natural, spontaneous voice that makes the listener feel he or she has just pulled up a chair for a long chat with an old friend. The icing on this cake is the interspersed commentary from family and friends. King also answers frequently-asked questions from his viewers. All of these features make this one of the most entertaining and enjoyable audiobooks I have ever listened to.
