    Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

    Overall

    As you take stock of the main character's life and the lessons that he learns, you inadvertently find yourself reflecting on your life too. The book is funny and sobering, soothing and disturbing. I was shocked by the various emotions it brought up in me. So captivated was I by the story that I listened to it in one sitting.

    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    "Great Book!"
    Overall

    Whether you just love Dean Martin's songs, have been captured by his persona or just want to know more about Dean and Jerry, this is a must hear. The book is very well done and provides information on Jerry and Dean's relationship from a suprising prespective. You will laugh, you will be surprised and you will cry. It well worth reading!
