This is an excellent book. I'm not a big Jerry Lewis fan but I found his stories heartwarming, funny, and honest. He was candid about the bad times but was still able look back at the good times with fondness and a sense of humor. A very entertaining read. I had a hard time turning off my IPOD.
It's not necessary to have " language"like that in a book.
Not sure yet but I am returning this one after an hour of listening. It's a shame because I like Jerry and Dean. Just not the language in the book. To raw for me.
Bad 4 letter words.
This seems to be repetitive but the language bothered me
one of the best modern biography I have listed to.
That is was written by Jerry Lewis who had an intimate knowledge and relationship with Dean. It was so interesting to hear a first hand account about the how they met how they grew as performers and then how they broke up
the same as the Book....it was a love story...it was written with obvious love for a friend
really enjoyed the book..thanks Jerry
I loved everything about this book. great stories... great narration. a beautiful snapshot of life during the golden years of Hollywood
would have enjoyed a bit more on the MDA Telethon years.... the romance of "Old Hollywood" and his personal demons that impacted his health. (As I mildly understand these things).
I have always liked jerry lewis until I listened to this book. the book was well written and read but I don't really care for the person that Jerry lewis was or is now. I liked him better as his likable character in the movies.
Since Del Rey stopped the EU I've gone over to horror novels. I was really lucky when the first zombies. Mark Tufo is my favorite so far.
Jerry Lewis was the first celebrity I've ever met and he could see I was a little starstruck so when he stopped and said hi that was just so cool to me. That was back in 1985 in Las Vegas. I will always remember him as a class act and gentleman. I went on to meet him several more times and he was nice every time.
Avid Listener of books at 1-1/2 times the normal speed. Trying to make up for all those boring high school teachers that could not reach me.
This was a joy to listen to and gave me a sense for the 1950's The narration is great and should not be missed. I had no idea you could make that kind of money in a week. Doing club dates. They where one hot act.
