I LOVED IT! If only more non-fiction books were written in this style; it reads like a story. Brilliant. It’s not dry and textbooky like most non-fiction books I have read (and that’s a lot, just check my library).
Most of the time non-fiction tends to be pretty dull, emotionless and little more than a long boring litany of: Fact. Fact. Date. Date. Fact. Date. Fact. You read it because you are interested in the information, but the presentation dulls your curiosity.
That’s not the case for this book, thanks to the story-style-set-up, it held my attention the entire way though... I never once got bored, or felt lost, or was mired down in a well of names and dates. I was captivated from the beginning to the end.
I enjoy this type of Anecdotal Celebrity Biography, it feels more personal than the typical bio format of: born here, went to school here, caught a break, got married, had 3 kids, had dinner with my celebrity friends, The End.
First hand anecdotes and recollections are much more enjoyable to read.
Overall, the book reminded me a lot of Betty White’s book “If You Ask Me”, and my feeling on this book are the same: If you are a fan you’ll love it, if you are not then don’t bother.
I’m the kind of person who buys DVDs for the special features; I love behind-the-scenes scoops and gossip!
It was great fun to learn how these shows came to be - a reminder of good times! If you liked Seinfeld, Frasier, Friends, Cheers, Mad About You, Will & Grace, ER etc you’ll get a kick out of it too.
It was a great trip down memory lane.
