Lost steam (I thought) in the latter part, but the childhood anecdotes were wonderfully told!
Worth-while, interesting book! I recommend it!
I’ve enjoyed Alan Alda as an actor, and after reading this book, I appreciate him more as a person, too. He recounts various major events in his life, both trials and tribulations, all with a dose of honest humor. His down-to-earth story is a reminder that behind the camera, celebrities still face real life challenges like the rest of us, and there are always lessons we can learn from each other, including – you guessed it – you probably shouldn’t have your beloved childhood pet stuffed.
Very interesting. A little slow, and strange at the beginning, but very interesting.
I’ve heard that many talented comedians have overcome personal tragedies to be the funny people they are. In Never Have Your Dog Stuffed And Other Things I’ve Learned, Alan Alda reveals some of the difficulties he has faced. “My mother didn’t try to stab my father until I was six” is the opening line of this sincere record of his life. Alan speaks to you as a friend and he is a friend you’ll enjoy getting to know. Alda has just written Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself, a new memoir in which you get to know more about the inner workings of his mind.
Alan Alda has a real way with words. He decided to write a different kind of Hollywood autobiography and his stories and life lessons are all delivered with is great sense of humour and his own particular outlook on life.
