    This is no ordinary celebrity biography pieced together by an outsider. Steve Martin and author Morris Walker had a close relationship growing up. They were class clowns together, charming the girls and the teachers with their wit, and eventually going on the road as comedians. This personal account will introduce you to the Steve Martin you've never seen before.

    Overall

    While the book give some glimpse into Mr. Martin's more private personality, it is a bit like watching slides of someone elses summer vacation. The storys are those of a couple of kids told by a very average writer.

    The narrative thread is eliusive and the exposition so slapdash that most storys left me hearing Walker say "I guess you had to be there". I wish I could have been.

    The stories reveal far more about the authors motivations than they do the subjects. I couldn't help but sense that this was Mr. Walkers payday for having the good fortune to become friends with a terrific talent, whose privacy prevented even his closest friends to get to know what was going on in Mr. Martins young mind.
