Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret of Their Success: Interviews with Legends & Luminaries?

Long overdue and welcome addition to the culture  Apr 27, 2008
The secret to Burt's success is in his ability to crisply edit his interviews and never drop a grain of his subject's wit & wisdom.

The "secret" that Burt has revealed with his interviews, is that there is no secret to success. Rather, it is always hard work and persistence to stay prepared for the many "lucky" opportunities that will present themselves in our lifetime.

If I were still teaching, I would surely assign this book to my students.
A Wonderful Collection of Interviews  Mar 4, 2008
I am deeply impressed with Burt Prelutsky's collection of interviews. Roger L. Simon and David Horowitz are among my favorite bloggers fighting against Islamic nihilism. I visit their blogs on a daily basis. Michael Medved's radio talk show is fantastic. Alas, it is impossible to cite all of the interviewees in a short review. The Gene Kelly one, however, particularly caught my attention. He explains how "The studios always took credit for making stars, but they never did." I never before realized that the great dancer was also highly intelligent.

One cannot go wrong if they purchase a copy of this book. Many of the most interesting and accomplished people of the last fifty years will reveal their innermost thoughts. If nothing else, these interviews with Mr. Prelutsky occurred during their mature years. They are therefore perhaps less reluctant to go into details best left untouched a few decades earlier. Yes, The Secret of Success is a sure winner. I whole-heartedly recommend it.
Quick, fun, and enlightening  Jan 27, 2008
Burt Prelutsky is the rare interviewer who listens to his subjects. You can see this in his follow-up questions. He's actually interested in his subjects, and his interest is infectious. Some of the names are classic movie stars, and their answers add to their canon.

You can dip into this book at any point, and skip around as you please. The answers won't appeal to the "get-rich-quick" crowd, but those of us who are interested in common-sense real-life advice from achievers will feast on this book.
Thanks for the Memories  Jan 23, 2008
Captivating! A unique incite into the lives of real celebrities, whose gifts to society are immeasurable. Thanks for the memories!
secrets of their success  Jan 22, 2008
I have been a Burt Prelutsky fan from the very first moment I discovered his erstwhile column in the Los Angeles Times. How I miss it.
His humor and clarity resound. He is a political writer to be reckoned with. There is no one like him. He will always impart wisdom, but never at the expense of his delicious humor.
