Richard Buskin

New York Times bestseller Richard Buskin has, to date, written more than 20 non-fiction books.
Several of these, the co-authored memoirs of celebrities, sports personalities, business people
and political figures, highlight his ability as an interviewer to extract and exploit the very best
stories, as well as his expertise at capturing the voices of both men and women, be they
American, British, Australian, European, Latino or from the Middle East. This ensures
that those who know the authors instantly recognize them while those who don't feel
as if they do. Here are some samples of his published work...
