Synopsis >

David Letterman spent the first fourteen years of his remarkable career at NBC. Throughout that time, he periodically spoke with NBC News about his comedy and his career. Here, collected for the first time, are the best of Dave's conversations with the likes of Tom Snyder, Jane Pauley, Jack Perkins and Tom Brokaw. They range from a 1978 interview with Snyder when Letterman was just 31, still playing clubs and looking for his big break, to a 1993 encounter with Brokaw, who took Dave fly fishing in Central Park! Some rare and fascinating insights into a famously private man.
