    Breakfast With Bill Richardson

    A celebrated author as well as a former Cabinet official, U.N. ambassador and two-term governor, Bill Richardson earned fame as the man to turn to when diplomacy isn't enough. Richardson's new book, "How to Sweet-Talk a Shark," details his successes and failures in delicate but tough bargaining with the likes of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, the Taliban and two generations of North Korean leaders.
    At this breakfast for Milken Institute Associates and invited guests, presented in partnership with the RAND Corp., Richardson will recall the highlights and lowlights of his experiences leading high-stakes negotiations in some of the world's most hostile places. The discussion will be moderated by Ambassador Charles Ries, a RAND senior fellow who has represented the United States in Iraq, Greece and Europe.
