Book Description

19 Sep 1995
Ever wanted to be that fly on the wall? To listen in on conversations that were meant to be intimate, private affairs? To overhear, verbatim, the words of famous entertainers, distinguished politicians, princes, potentates, and petty criminals? Welcome to an eavesdropper's jamboree, where you can revel in the real, unexpurgated words of real people in all their astonishing, appalling, and hilarious entirely - taken from sources like transcripts of testimony that was sealed, depositions that had been buried, recordings of exchanges that were cut from the official broadcasts, conversations considered so confidential, so off-the-record, so privileged and personal that we thought, Hey, why not share them with the whole world? Here is: Michael Jackson's housekeeper describing life chez Jacko; Prince Charles telling his lover his fondest hopes regarding reincarnation; pickup lines from Clarence Thomas; Senators Bob Dole and Alan Simpson trying to reach out and touch Saddam Hussein; Tommy Lasorda revealing what managers really say to pitchers out on the mound; Spike Lee on the importance of higher education; tobacco executives who can't quite make the connection between smoking and lung cancer; and lots more, word for regrettable word - in short, a feast of the famous and infamous caught with their guards down and their mikes on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reality Bites Back 20 Oct 1998
By Kenny Neal (kenny.neal@mci.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Beyond the delivery of a prepared speech or the correctness of a press agent's spin, often celebrities' hidden faces are only revealed in those candid moments when they think the camera is off or that the documents will be sealed. "Loose Lips" is a collection of transcriptions, ranging from near apocryphal "between takes" remarks to "why wasn't THAT on the news?" court records. In all cases, you'll be introdced to new facets of the speakers (and often unflattering sides at that). Since the transcriptions are fact rather than fiction (much like "found" art"), I'm mostly basing my fairly high rating on the idea to compile this book, and deducting slightly for the uninspired illustrations. Also, there really is no substitute for actually hearing the words out of the mouth of the speaker (as listners of the Don & Mike Show and the Howard Stern Show already know), so if you have not heard the Casey Kasem "rave-out" or the Orson Wells frozen food commercial, you might not fully appreciate the verité of it all. Finally, perhaps the biggest compliment/criticism I can give is that, with the wealth of accusitory depositions, asides, misspeaks, and cornered self-rationalizations forever preserved for postarity in the media age, "Loose Lips" could have (and should have) been several times as long. Let's hope for "Looser Lips: The Sequel."
