    Where does My Mother Was Nuts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The top biography, maybe top 5 of all my books...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love when the author reads their own story, especially an autobiography. It's their story, they own it, they know how to tell it.


    Which character – as performed by Penny Marshall – was your favorite?

    Who doesn't love Laverne? But my favorite Penny Marshall character is simply Penny Marshall, the woman.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was particularly touched by Penny getting choked by emotion when telling of friends'/family members'/colleagues' deaths, or the 9-11 Attacks, for example.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an awesome book. I was afraid at first that Penny telling her own story would be unintelligible because of her mumbly-accented speaking voice. You warm up to it pretty quick. There are several times where you can tell she's gone off-book and it just telling you the story. Between that, the emotion, and the behind-the-Hollywood-scenes stories, this has got to be my Number 1 favorite biography.
