Reynolds has commented that the hardest thing about writing this book was cutting out all the bad stuff he wanted to say about former wife Loni Anderson. Thus this becomes a tell-somewhat, rather than a tell-all, but a bonanza for Reynolds' fans nonetheless. A good ol' Florida boy, Reynolds spent his younger years in the shadow of his formidable father, the chief of police. His promising football career was stopped short by a shattered knee, but Burt stumbled into acting. Despite his movie and television triumphs, Reynolds seems best known for his private life--his affairs with Sally Field and Dinah Shore, his marriage to Loni, and even after all these years, his decision to be a Cosmopolitan centerfold. Fortunately, Burt doesn't take himself too seriously, even when taking on such serious subjects as his bout with an illness that everyone assumed was AIDS. (It was a jaw problem that left him unable to eat and in horrible pain.) He also has some great Hollywood stories to tell, so even those who are immune to Reynolds' charms will find something to like here. Ilene CooperReview:
This came in just under the wire and we're pleased to announce an excellent abridgement of Reynolds' autobiography, spiced by a strong narrative style of the author and subject himself. This fine abridgement touches upon all the highlights of Reynolds' book and life, following his Broadway and Hollywood careers and revealing his personal loves and career struggles in the process. An excellent, revealing account! -- Midwest Book Review
