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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudette | 2/15/2014

    " Did this in audio book--HIGHLY recommended. He is a great storyteller, and his voice is so distinctive that it carries the story. Interesting recorded comments by famiily memeber and friends interspersed. Some really interesting anecdotes about celebrities, historical events, and experiences. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisela | 2/8/2014

    " Excellent! I love hearing about Larry King and his multi-marriage life, his liberal type attitudes even though he may or may not be a liberal. I liked the way he and his son Larry King, Jr. found each other when the timing was right and how they run their organization for people who can't afford heart surgery. I also liked the end of the book and how the tables are turned on him and he is the interviewee. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margie | 2/3/2014

    " Good review of the famous people including all the Presidents that he has interviewed. Proof that sincerity and being yourself are all the skills you need to be successful. He loves live and is a great father. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn Hailley | 2/1/2014

    " This book was an easy read, although sometimes it was tedious. I guess it was differnt than I expected...I expected more on the celebritiy encounters and his marriages. He treated the first 7 marriages to about a page total in the whole book. But he had some funny stories which I enjoyed, as well as information on his early career that I didn't know and found interesting. Wasn't a super page-turner...it needed more of 'whats going to happen next' theme "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 1/31/2014

    " This is almost Larry King as comic. A really pleasant look into the big events in his life, with plenty of entertaining stories along the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryJane | 1/13/2014

    " Fast moving and fascinating book! Interesting tidbits of intrigue and Larry's connections with many newsmakers - never tacky! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/12/2014

    " Who knew that this man got married 8 times! He's no Elizabeth Taylor but I found the book a quick, informative read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Perry | 12/24/2013

    " Good book about all the people Larry interviewed over the years as well as his personal life. He's had an awesome career. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 11/25/2013

    " A curious read. Very interesting base on his life experiences and the wealth of people he's interviewed....yet I found it to be a bit superficial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kharah | 10/29/2013

    " My uncle recommended this book and I had no idea what to expect. It was surprisingly good! I really liked how they tried to present more than one side of an event or experience by asking family and friends to contribute, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 10/11/2013

    " Entertaining and enlightening. Some good insights; I especially liked the idea of "What seems bad may actually be good." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosalie | 9/28/2013

    " I loved the old time stories of Brooklyn and Miami. Interesting to get a chance to look into so many lives through King's perspective. "

    " Enjoyed this book very much "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Fought | 1/7/2013

    " There are many reasons why I've always been a fan of Larry King. This is an interesting memoir with lots of great stories, some of which made me laugh out loud. Yet, it's a bit over-the-top at some points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandy | 12/7/2012

    " I really liked it but I am into autobiographies from famous people. I just think he is fascinating because he has lived over so many decades....and he is married to a Mormon. ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Revier | 10/26/2012

    " I didn't really no to much about the man, but I knew he was a Dodger fan. So I figured what the hell. It was really good, he had stories on stories. Come to find out his new wife is L.D.S., go figure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elana | 8/6/2011

    " A few interesting tidbits about some of his encounters with US presidents etc., but mostly he is like most entertainers, very full of himself. "
