The knack How to kiss and tell, by Max Clifford

"Think carefully before you do anything. There can be a lot of minuses: you're washing your dirty laundry in public, everybody will know your business, the other person will come back with all kinds of accusations about you, you'll cause embarrassment to your relations, and it could spoil your career because people will think you can't be trusted. You can't ensure that once you've told you'll be perceived in a positive light because, generally speaking, there's not a lot of sympathy for people who kiss and tell. Some people try and kickstart a career this way, but I would say nine times out of 10 it's a bad move.
