I was really looking forward to this book, but it was impossible to get into. There really is no theme whatsover to each chapter. It's a laundry list of "interesting" facts that the author managed to unearth--the type of stuff you would hear an obnoxious music enthusiast using to try to impress people at a cocktail party.
I'm not a Steve Martin fan but thought his autobiography was incredibly intelligent and well-written. It is fascinating to hear how his inner emotional life related to the public persona through different periods of his career. Ultimately, the self-awareness he achieves is quite inspiring.
