I really respect Mr. Ebert and consider him hugely talented as a film critic and as a writer, but overall, I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. It was too heavy on nostalgia and minutia, and as a previous reviewer noted there were many repetitions of portions of anecdotes and stories. I will say this, Mr. Ebert's ability to face his challenges and his own mortality with humor, strength, and optimism is very impressive--I just thought that the memoir was overall too sentimental for my tastes. The vocal performace is wonderful, though.
