Betty Liu with Work SmartsBloomberg TV anchor Betty Liu was feted for her new book, “Work Smarts: What CEOs Say You Need to Get Ahead,” this week at a party hosted by Chris Burch, the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital.

In his toast, Burch, who is featured in the book, praised Liu’s interviewing abilities, saying she asks “ingenious and beautiful questions” and is an “amazing woman, true to the heart.” The book also includes interviews with Warren Buffett, Jamie Dimon and Sam Zell, among many others.

In a speech, Liu thanked her Bloomberg colleagues, who she said “really held my hand” through the writing process.

“‘Work Smarts’ was a labor of love, but it was probably more like labor. I’ve written a book before, but this time it was with twin boys and also waking up at 3:45 in the morning everyday,” Liu said. “So I tried not to take myself too seriously when writing this book.”
