In 1970 I was trying to survive as a 12 year old who had recently moved, and was having trouble making friends in a new school and completely different culture. This book was on my mother's shelves. I grabbed it, devoured it all...and applied Barbara Walter's insights and knowledge for the rest of my life--EVERYDAY! There's a story where she must interview a significant world leader...does her homework...finds out what he is really interested in...which happens to be growing tomatoes in his garden. She spends her time talking to him about his interests, rather than her own, then goes for the typical interview. The lessons apply for making friends, working in any situation, communicating effectively. Ironically 35 years later I was applying this same strategy while interviewing a celebrity myself. Instead of talking about the what I consider important, we talked about the birth of his child. The piece was wonderful...and yes, it did cycle around to his experiences that are of interest in more public areas. But it was Barbara's training that showed me how to tap into people and dig out the nuggests of pure gold. It's classic! This is the best resource I know to learn or teach interviewing skills for therapists, journalists, and anyone else who interviews for a living. I checked this out years ago from the library and it was already out of print. I been a social worker, teacher and therapist for over 30 years and recommend this book to my graduate students in field placement. They have to hunt to find it but they all agree it is well worth it to find this fun and easy to read guide to overcoming your self consciousness, preconceived notions, biases and fears and genuinely get into the moment and situation of the interview. It's classic!
