Wonderful! I've always loved Dick Van Dyke and listening to him share his events, thoughts and feelings through his life was great fun. Audio quality is not what it should be, though. Seems like Random House could do better.
I was especially surprised at how open, honest, and genuinely spiritual he was -- and how he emphasized repeatedly that what is important is creating love in the world. No wonder we all love him so much.
I really like Dick Van Dyke, so I was surprised by how boring this book was. There's just no meat here, and I don't mean dirt. It read like a series of "this happened then that happened," and I was never drawn into the story. He's a great guy and has nice things to say about everyone, but that does not an engrossing memoir make. As a narrator, Mr. Van Dyke was often difficult to understand, which is a shame, because it's usually more enjoyable when a celebrity reads their own work.
It's a fun look back at a great time in America
His voice is great to listen too and easy on the ears
When Mr Van Dyke met Stan Laurel for the first time...then when Stan passed.
He is very open and candid in this book, yet tells so much of it in a fun and entertaining way. It showed me the person behind the actor I had grown up watching and enjoying most of my life.
Might - if they grew up knowing of Dick Van Dyke
Not sure if I would read another one of his books. I felt like there was a lot not covered or answered.
No - kinda sounds like he has trouble talking at times
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I love Dick VanDyke but I was really disappointed in this book. I found it to be boreing, which really surprised me.
