    The creator and executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond dissects the art of comedy and the making of a sitcom classic. In television, where programs can premiere and disappear in the same week, Everybody Loves Raymond reigned as America's best-loved show for nine years with more than 17 million viewers. As the number-one sitcom, it received more than 70 Emmy nominations, including two wins for best comedy.

    Would you listen to You're Lucky You're Funny again? Why?

    Yes - Phil Rosenthal has the DNA of a storyteller. It's a good thing to have if you are writing stories. I never watched Raymond, but this book is a look into that alien world of Show Business through the eyes of a talented and funny storyteller. Hearing an autobiography read by the author adds a lot to the experience.
    I like this book.


    What other book might you compare You're Lucky You're Funny to and why?

    I've listened to Dick Van Dyke, Adrien Barbeau, and Kristen Chenoweth read their books and enjoyed them immensely too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Cover to cover - it's enjoyable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The funniest people are behind the camera.


    Any additional comments?

    Phil is a performer as well as a talented artist.

    When Ball Four was published in 1970, it created a firestorm. Bouton was called a Judas, a Benedict Arnold and a “social leper” for having violated the “sanctity of the clubhouse.” Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn tried to force Bouton to sign a statement saying the book wasn’t true. Ballplayers, most of whom hadn’t read it, denounced the book. It was even banned by a few libraries. Almost everyone else, however, loved Ball Four.

    Dennis Anderson says: "Author's reading provides new insight into classic"
    "A great story told by a great storyteller"

    What did you love best about Ball Four?

    Bouton is reading his own book. Sometimes he cracks himself up while reading and I love it. His personality comes through in every chapter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ball Four?

    Retelling some of the hijinx that overgrown boys will do.


    Any additional comments?

    Bouton should step aside and let someone with talent join the glee club. His voice just isn't up to the task! It's great to be an Astro.
