For that particular Genre it is probably an 8 out of 10
My Lucky Life by Dick Van Dyke. Russell Johnson (Although not as good as he thinks he is) tells a very realistic story of how they got along and when they didn't. It was a good account of how things were done on television way back.
Alan Hale. That was a surprise to me but I really got to like the man as Russell Johnson described him.
I like to read books about the old sitcoms. This was one I was glad I read.
Just like you, I spend my money here and am not on any author's payroll :)
As I write this Russell Johnson passed away from natural causes in the past week at age 89....RIP Professor...
I was a huge fan of Gilligan's Island after it went into syndication and was shown weekdays in the late afternoon after I arrived home from school. While I have viewed the specials and made-for-TV films made after the series, the Professor's memoirs and commentary really resonated with me.
If you are even a mild fan of the show, get this title. If you are/were a rabid fan...this is a must listen. Finally, for all you guys out there like me who were Gilligan fanatics as kids, I only have one question for you: Ginger or Mary Ann? :) :)
