    From 1962 until 1992, Johnny Carson hosted The Tonight Show and permeated the American consciousness. In the ’70s and ’80s he was the country’s highest-paid entertainer and its most enigmatic. He was notoriously inscrutable, as mercurial (and sometimes cruel) off-camera as he was charming and hilarious onstage. During the apex of his reign, Carson’s longtime lawyer and best friend was Henry Bushkin, who now shows us Johnny Carson with a breathtaking clarity and depth that nobody else could.

    "Likely a good story-but, narrator is annoying"

    Story
    What did you like best about Johnny Carson? What did you like least?

    Just began the book, and almost deleted it after listening to the narrator. His voice is far too animated-moves up and down to an extreme as if he is reading a children's bedtime story. My wife was in the car with me and said she could not listen to it so I stopped.


    If you’ve listened to books by Henry Bushkin before, how does this one compare?

    Have not read any others


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    Anyone else. Dick Hill should not narrate books-period!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book and skip the audio book. Hope I can get through this as I am looking forward to a good story.
