Lesson #5: Give and You Shall Receive

Art Buchwald

Art Buchwald was unsure if he should go on Larry King Live in the early '90s to discuss depression; the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist didn't want to become a poster boy for mental health. But he did it because the author William Styron had been a role model for him, and because he realized celebrities can play a role in helping depressed people. After that show (which received the most viewer reaction of any Larry King episode ever), Buchwald decided to speak about his depression whenever he received an invitation because it helped him as much as it did the millions of people listening to him.
