I've always enjoyed Garry Marshall as an actor, director and a personality. This memoir did not disappoint. It was as upbeat as an episode of Happy Days. He has some bumps in the road, but he keeps perspective and keeps moving.
author of books for teens and children
I loved hearing Garry Marshall's New Yawk accent and great comic timing. He seems like a very nice guy, and it was fascinating to hear details about Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Pretty Woman, and other TV shows and movies he wrote and/or directed. I enjoyed his positive attitude, work ethic, family values, and humor.
Thie history of some of my favorite TV shows and movies are fascinating. Garry Marshall's honesty and performance make this audio book a winner.
This is a very well intentioned and narrated account of a celebrity life. Garry Marshall is the kind of man that you wished was your father, uncle or grandfather. His live and let-live (or act and let act) attitude and personality are rare, very rare and yet for me there is something kind of odd about it. I guess I don't care too much for looking at another person's rather perfect life and then compare it to my own, makes me feel kind of badly actually. His account of "I met so and so in the Army and they later went on to fame and fortune," happened way too often. Talk about luck or karma or whatever. Make no mistake, I would love to know a guy like Garry Marshall, but absent of that, I really don't care to read about another person's wonderful largely drama and stress free life in a book. It's just not realistic, feels more like a fantasy than a life. I don't wish to offend others by my opinion, much less Mr. Marshall, this is all just my personal look at the thing from my point of view.
Garry reading the story added to the story certainly
