ربما يكون كتابا للتنمية الذاتية، ولكننا نظلمه إذا ساويناه بأمثاله!

يركز الكتاب على هدفين أساسيين:
الأول : كيف تصبح متحدث جيد، وفي هذا الصدد إليكم ما استخلصته
- تحلّى بروح الدعابة
- استمع للآخرين بإهتمام حقيقي
- تحدث بـ "شغف" وحب حقيقي عما تتناوله من موضوعات، فما أسهل إدراك المتحدث المصطنع الذي يعتنق أفكارًا ليس مقتنع بها تمامًا.
- كن صريحًا وصادقًا
- حدّث الآخرين فيم هم خبراء فيه، ويمثل محور إهتمام لهم

الهدف الثاني : كيف تُلقي خطابا جيدا ؟
لا شك أننا نرى جميعًا افتقار المشاهير حولنا القدرة الخطابية ال

In How to Talk to Larry Talks to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere , you’ll learn about how Larry talks to his rich friends, politicians, and celebrities:
My awesome self with this awesome person at this awesome place, and this awesome conversation we had.. and blah blah blah… aren’t we just so famous and so superb with our impeccable conversations?
This is not a book about “Secrets” and definitely not on “Good Communication.” This is about Larry King, his story, his friends, and what amazing conver

Este o carte scrisă cu umor şi înţelepciune. Ca să netezească drumul spre succesul care, cum spune acest celebru moderator de televiziune şi radio Larry King, „este pavat cu discuţii”. Cu sfaturi şi exemple din viaţă, cu reguli precum ascultă, fii atent la limbajul trupului, la contactul vizual, la decor şi cele 8 lucruri pe care aşii conversaţiei le au în comun. „Majoritatea oamenilor de succes sunt vorbitori excelenţi. Să nu vă mire, reciproca este şi ea adevărată”, spune autorii talk-show-ulu ...more

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 ...more

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.

Хорошая, хотя и слегка поверхностная книга о том, как взрастить в себе человека, держащего под контролем свою речь. Хорошая, потому что написана призннанным авторитетом (из книги вы узнаете настоящую фамилию еврейского мальчика Ларри и историю появления "королевского" псевдонима) и изобилует большим количеством историй из жизни. Поверхностная, потому что Ларри описывает свой путь, а далеко не каждый может оказаться в его условиях и получить такую же практику. В общем, книга больше про самого Кин ...more

Larrry King is a classic spokes-person and I chose his book, "How to Talk to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: The Secrets of Good Communication" to enhance my social skills and have it benefit me at all times. Ever since 1st grade, I've been reluctant to speak up, I was diagnosed with glossophobia until I was 11 in 5th grade. I was afraid of talking in class, or anyone in general, and that I always had trouble ending a conversation. I've learned how to stand up for myself over the years and ended my p ...more

الكتاب من تأليف لاري كنج –ملك الكلام!- وهو غني عن التعريف- بالاشتراك مع بيل جيلبرت-الذي لا أعرفه.
يقولون عن لاري كنج: إذا ذهب لاري إلى الملعب واستمرت المبارة لساعتين وعشردقائق فسيكون وصف لاري للمبارة بعد أن يعود في ساعتين وعشر دقائق!.
قد لا يهمك هذا لكن شخصيا لو استمرت المباراة عشر ساعات فلن يكون وصفي لها إلا في عشر ثواني!

كتاب جميل من شخص يعرف الموضوع الذي يتحدث عنه جيدا, فهو متخصص في الكلام على حد قوله, ويعمل في الإذاعة و التلفاز منذ مدة طويلة جدا.

الكتاب يتكون من 216 صفحة من الحجم المتوسط. الكتاب

كتاب مفيد لتنمية القدرة على اجراء حوارات في مواقف مختلفة في حياتنا وإلقاء خطابات ، لغته سلسة وأسلوب الكاتب ممتع . لا يأخذ وقتاً في قراءته ويضيف معلومات مهمة . لو أردت تلخيصه بجملة ( أفضل أسلوب لاجراء أي حديث التزام الصدق).

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 ...more

Dimulai dengan pernyataan besar: orang yang sukses adalah pembicara yang sukses. Larry King membeberkan segala pengalaman, tips dan trik, dan seni berbicara yang membuatnya menjadi terkenal seperti sekarang. “Berbicara itu seperti bermain golf, mengendarai mobil, atau mengelola toko—semakin sering melakukannya, semakin mahir Anda jadinya, dan semakin senang Anda melakukannya,” kata pembawa acara Larry King Live CNN ini.

Liked it and easy to read. Loaded with stories and anecdotes which is better then just being told what to do. This book doesn't just cover how to be conversant but goes a bit into public speaking. I was mainly looking for ideas to improve in small talk with people or small groups. Got some help and ideas for this. Mostly common sense but still good reinforcement. Sometimes we need to hear the obvious.

As a person who likes to think out loud one of the biggest changes this book has brought me is

**Audio version reviewed**

Oh Larry King, you can talk to me anytime and anywhere. This silver-tongued devil's voice is smooth as silk. He could make anything sound great, which is why this audio book version is not as bad as it should be. It's really just 90 minutes of Larry King from the early 90's speaking off the cuff about speaking. There's no real system or organization to his method - - or any method at all. Don't count on getting more than only a few pointers.

كتاب جميل بشكل عام ، يساعدك في اتقان فنون الكلام وكيف تصبح متحدث جيد سواء كنت مذيعا تلفزيونيا او متحدث على الاذاعة ، ويوجه لك بعض النصائح لالقاء الخطب ويستشهد بامثلة لناس ناجحين في هذا المجال ، الكتاب صغير نسبيا وليس تفصيلي في حيثياته ولكنه يعطيك بعض النصائح لتكون متحدث بارع وكما هو الحال باي كتاب للتنمية البشرية فالبقية تكون عليك

King's book is a fairly fun read, but provides mostly common sense information. If you've never taken a class or read anything else it might be a nice introduction. One of the best sections was about business meetings. I do wish more people followed his suggestions in that setting!

Я ничего не узнаю когда говорю

Почему? Что если? А что вы об этом думаете?

1. Скажите им, о чем вы собираетесь сказать.
2. Скажите им это.
3. Скажите им, о чем вы только что говорили.

Обучающая часть с советами совсем не новая, но есть ссылки на классические книги. Мне больше всего понравились истории, плюс отдельные вещи я нарыла на YouTube и посмотрела - такой режим сразу позволил увидеть советы в действии, что полезно.

استمعت الى الأوديوبوك بناء على ترشيح هاني حمد. الكتاب خفيف، يتكلم فيه لاري كنج سريعا عن مجموعة مبادئ تعلمها خلال سنوات عمله عند الحديث مع الآخرين.

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.

Наверно второй по популярности диалог с главой российского государства или посвящённое главе российского государства, которое определило эпоху (первое, это не безызвестное «Who is Mister Putin»).

Ларри Кинг: Что случилось с подводной лодкой «Курск»?
Владимир Путин: Она утонула.

Не знаю, понимает ли Кинг, что это была историческая мизансцена. Возможно, и понимал. Однако в его книге «Как разговаривать с кем угодно, когда угодно и где угодно» ее, к сожалению нет. Но есть другие, так же интересные исто

If you've read any books on improving your conversation skills, you've read what's in Mr. King's book. Nothing new. Presented well, written much in the style of his talk shows, easy to understand. Some wonderful anecdotes.
