Greg covers a multitude of topics from writing to rehearsal and performance. If you are interested in doing comedy for a living this book has a tons of tips and advice on things you haven't even considered. I was skeptical at first but in the end I enjoyed this book very much and I learned quite a bit about the whole process from concept to live performance. I can honestly say I have a far greater understanding of the entire process now than I ever did before. Greg’s narration is clear, concise, and entertaining.
All of this stuff was collected by his wife and closest friends off his hard drive and lovingly put together into one final book including the first few chapters of a Dirk Gently book.
If you are a fan of his books The Salmon Of Doubt Lets you meet him in person and get to know him in an amazingly amusing way. What an amazing life and a great loss. I will always wonder where that last novel would have taken me however after reading this I kinda like it that way. I think it was his way of getting the last laugh by making us all think about his unfinished last story and smile from time to time.
There are many who have a problem with the ending so if you want a happy ending stop when he tells you to. The ending is fitting also keep in mind there will be another book King is planning on starting it in September. The biggest thing for me was saying goodbye to the wonderful rich characters. After listening to seven books on the road I laughed I cried and I felt like these were my friends, which is the whole point of phenomenal writing. All I can say is thank you Stephen King for a wonderful journey and a story that I will share with my children when the time is right. Long days and pleasant nights to you all.
