Enjoyed every page of this book. I believe Steve is one of this centuries most talented & versatile artists yet he is as humble as they come. I bet you'd even be a pretty decent Realtor.
Probably because I grew up watching Steve Martin and remember him as the wild and crazy guy. I found the a pretty clinical look at his life for it to be written and read by him. Maybe if I listen again sometime with less of a predetermined view of who I was listening to?
I watched this story while it was happening. It was fun to relive it, but with the benefit of the behind the scenes story. I love Steve Martin, and really enjoyed the book.
I love Steve Martin, and this little book did not disappoint. The story isn't anything special, but it's interesting to hear him narrate his own life and discuss his rise to fame.
While most everyone would agree the Steve had some universally appreciated one liners, I personally never cared for his style overall. Still this book was a great insight into the creative process in general, and the man specifically. Well worth your time
A hopeless book lover
This was a short but enjoyable listen. The focus is on his stand-up career and not much else.I've always been a fan but never saw much of his stand-up, mainly his hilarious movies. I was very impressed by how hard he worked to get to where he is. He sounds very grounded and likable to me. The parts about his father I found to be sad.
I thought his narration was fine. I don't think I would have liked a different narrator on this one.Short but insightful. If you are a fan I think you'll enjoy this.
The details of my life are quite inconsequential...
What a life.
I remember in the first time I heard the song King Tut. I was 9 years old in 1978. Steve Martin has been making me laugh ever since.
This was a great audio book.
I love that Steve read his story and played his banjo.
His perseverance and original ideas to further his career were inspirational to me. Thanks Steve.
