For the past seventeen years, Wendy Walker has been the "woman behind the man" at Larry King Live. As King's senior executive producer, she has been responsible for landing exclusive interviews with the most important newsmakers and well-known celebrities from around the globe that have been the hallmark of CNN's iconic show.
From the shocking death of Michael Jackson to the first television interview with the Watergate scandal's Deep Throat, Wendy Walker has a wealth of never-before-shared stories involving the most relevant events and people of our time.
Starting as an ABC secretary over thirty years ago, she has risen through the male-dominated world of television production. Her passion, intellect, and work ethic are undeniable, but it's her heart that has always been her guide. It's with the same zeal and loving spirituality that she shares the insights gained during her long climb to the top. With empowering advice and inspirational thoughts, Wendy Walker has not only gained a lifetime of experience, but the wisdom to know that it needs to be shared.
The Journey of Life
I did not expect this to be an instructional on how to live one's life but found this the most extraordinary treatise written by a genuine veteran of life's circumstances. This instructional not only works for those who've been on life's road for some time but for early travelers. The bonus is that it is laced with some of the greatest anecdotes by an actual participant in some of life's great historical moments. I highly highly recommend "Producer" to anyone wishing to meet an incredibly interesting and brave warrior of life.

I was hoping that this memoir would be something more than the bragging and sheer good fortune of a successful person. But I was wrong. There was nothing relatable in this book. No nuggets of wisdom. Nothing. It was simply an account of Walker's good fortune. I do not recommend this book if you are hoping to get something deeper out of it.
