I actually listened to this book, which I think made it a bit more interesting for me. He did voices for every major "character" he talked about, including an impressive Christopher Walken and Lucille Ball. You could hear the sorrow in his voice when he talked about sad things in life, and the absolute joy when he talked about his wife and sons. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone, even those who only have a passing interest in his work. The stories he tells are impressive, and I found myself saying, "Wow, who didn't you know or meet?"
