Interested in Language
I have two questions, can you please help me out?
1- The meaning of "a sense of theater"?
2- The meaning of this title "No Such thing as Over-Exposure"?
Thanks in advance
The second question is the biography of Ronal Trump written by Robert Salter. I have no more information.
And the first one I do not really. Can you please help me out?
No Such thing as Over-Exposure
Some politicians, actors, etc like 'exposure', news about them in the media, but some feel there can be too much of this - over-exposure. They feel that over-exposure might make people bored with them.
The writer of your sentence was saying effectively that you can never have too much exposure
Please try to give more helpful titles to your threads. You have used such titles as: Can anyone please answer the question?, I need your help. Please help me out, and Can you please help me?
These give no clue as to what sort of help you need.
You have also used more helpful titles as those below, showing that you can do it: Please help me to find the gist of the meaning, A question on title, and Please describe the meaning of Fireside Chats.

(1) I believe that "a sense of theater" is something like this:
(a) You know what a theater is. It is a place where people
go to watch actors on a stage perform a play.
(b) Well, as Shakespeare reminded us, all of us human
beings are also actors. For example, we act one way when
dealing with our family, and we act another way at work, etc.
(c) I believe that some people seem to have "a sense of
theater" in their conduct. In plain English, they are very dramatic.
That is, they know how act as if they were in a play.
(i) Here is my (terrible) example:
Mona has been invited to a party. Because she has a sense of
theater, she knows when to arrive (not too early and not too late);
she knows what to wear (nothing too wild but nothing too ordinary); she
knows when to smile and when to look serious; and -- above all -- she
knows the right time to leave (so that all the other partygoers will turn
to look as she smoothly leaves the room, as if she were a queen).
(d) Maybe the people who have the best sense of theater are
successful politicians. They know when to speak and when to say
nothing; they know what places to visit and what places to avoid;
they know how to use language to excite, anger, or inspire people.
(For example, a clever politician might use some of the grammar or
vocabulary used by his listeners. Then his listeners will think: "Wow!
he is one of us.") In other words, a good politician is a good actor.
He knows how to put on a show.
(2) Some people just seem to be born with a sense of theater. They just
seem to know how to gain your attention by everything they do --
and do not do. I guess that we can say that they are born actors.
