When Gregory Levey was in his mid-twenties, he wasn't exactly chugging from a beer bong or playing Grand Theft Auto for 8 hours. Gregory Levey was bored at law school and decided to apply for an internship at the Israeli UN Mission. Many months and resumes later, he found himself in an office there, not as an intern but as a speechwriter for Israeli diplomats. Before long, he moved to Israel and become a speechwriter for Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. He's written a book about it called Shut Up, I'm Talking: And Other Diplomacy Lessons I Learned in the Israeli Government. Gregory Levey speaks with Faith Salie on Fair Game.
