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.
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.
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.
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.
Jerry Lewis....What a great book! Heartfelt. Detailed. Well written. A great behind the scenes of a great era! Stephen Hoye brings this book to life. He is very entertaining. Highly recommend it!
Wonderfully narrated story how Jerry Lewis underwent his relationship with Dean. Bragging and exaggerating still at times very honest I think.
As an author myself, dyslexic, and ADD, I need something that grabs me. Non-fiction on things of interest to me, educates, & titillates.
No unfortunately, I was so bummed at the way Jerry's ego got in the way of everything and I have loved this man my whole life.
something non-fiction, as always, could be a bio or true crime.
another narrator. he is horrible!
Yes, some of the info on how Jerry grew up was interesting.
IF Jerry had narrated the book himself, maybe I would have enjoyed it more. I own every movie he was ever in, and so bummed that the book dragged and was uninteresting in the way it was read, and edited. Clearly could have been edited down more.
