אינני סובל מצניעות מופרזת, אבל לא הייתי טורח על הספר הזה אילולא התרשמתי כל כך מלווייתי. היא היתה ללא ספק הצלחה מסחררת. ראש המשלה בכה מעל קברי, מאות אנשים הצטופפו במעברים, וכמובן שהצלחתי לעורר שערורייה אחת אחרונה בכך שלראשונה בתולדות המדינה נקבר אדם קבורה חילונית בבית קבורה אורתודוכסי. בתום הלוויה, בעת ששולה צעדה החוצה, היא מלמלה באוזני עליזה אולמרט: אל תכעסי על עצמך, שולינ ...more

I actually think I would have enjoyed this book even if I'd read it in English, although in Hebrew there's always that added factor of yay, me! I read a full-length book in Hebrew and enjoyed it! That must mean it's a great book!

Yair Lapid writes this biography of his father, Tomi Lapid, as if it is actually Tomi himself writing his memoir. It's gimmicky but the gimmick works here. I kept forgetting that it was Yair writing, not Tomi. I was amazed at the level of detail and the apparent authenti

I feel like a bit mean-spirited giving this only three stars, but it's really not what I was hoping for. My hope was that it would provide a greater level of insight into some major events in Israel's history. Rather, it was too focused on the man himself. I realize that it is a biography, written the public-figure son of a public figure, so what was I expecting? Well, Yehuda Avner managed to write an excellent autobiography that of course focuses on his role in the major events happening around ...more

What an absolutely fantastic book! Yair Lapid has done his father proud. This Autobiography/Biography is well written, funny, easy to follow and even makes you hungry! Tommy Lapid, his life walked hand in hand with the History of the State of Israel and Tommy was a great then life character. Whether you loved or hated Tommy Lapid - this book is a must read to understand the mentality of the modern Israeli

I absolutely loved this book. I may not agree with Yair or Tommy's politics but what a terrific story and what a wonderful portrayal of a huge Israeli figure!
Fragmentage
I picked this one up in the middle of the 2012/13 Israeli election campaigns in a curious attempt to learn more about Yair Lapid (whose party would end up second strongest with 19 seats) as an author and his family background. His well-written account of the colourful life of his father Tommy Lapid impressed and surprised me on many levels.

To write a biography as a first-person narrative with the deceased functioning as narrator is daring even if you knew the person really well. I was pretty sk

In this excellent biography that was written after the death of Tommy Lapid by his son, Yair Lapid, the current treasury secretary of Israel, Tommy’s life story is told through the voice of his father as if it was written by Tommy himself. Tommy Lapid was born in Hungary and survived the Holocaust to later immigrate to Israel. In Israel he eventually became an important journalist and politician. This biography is also a great way to learn about Israel from the “good old days” up to modern Israe ...more

I heard in my mind Tomi's voice throughout the book. Any one who knew him or at least saw him on TV can't help be feel the same. So much so, that I actually doubt that Tomi did not actually write the book,
It is a fascinating story sprinkled with his unique sense of humor. It allows the reader to witness and understand a period in Israel's history.
Ruth Jalfon
A memoir written from Tommy Lapid's viewpoint with the words and easy-to-read style of his son Yair. Makes you understand Lapid's controversial actions (the latter ones of which I easily remember from living in Israel for 12 years already) and where he was coming from and the warmth, love and humour that came out just makes you sympathise with and love him. A treasure of a book that sometimes made me cry, sometimes laugh out loud, and proud to be a jew in this hard-fought-for land.

I was a little apprehensive about Yair Lapid's style, having read his column in an Israeli newspaper in January and hated it, but was pleasantly surprised. His style in this book is nothing like his trying-too-hard-to-be-funny newspaper writing. Like a good biography, it made it easier to understand Tommy Lapid's actions in his life, and generated a lot of sympathy in me toward him. i even liked the concept of a fake first-person autobiography.

I wonder whether I'm starting to like biographies. T

Following the death of Israeli journalist, politician, writer and all-round public figure, Tommy Lapid, his son Yair Lapid wrote his "autobiography".
Excellent portrayal that makes you feel as if you were there in the room with them. There are many scenes that will stay with you. Though it helps, I don't think you have to be Israeli to appreciate this book. It was written in Hebrew, but Evan Fallenberg's translation is flawless.

I just had a blast reading it.
The level of intimate acquaintance Yair sets up with his father is striking. Can't imagine how much work was put into this project, and how much love.
Found myself smiling uncontrollably, and at times, even crying.
Tommy Lapid was very different from the man I thought he was.
This is a journey you must take.

Tommy Lapid was an Israeli writer, journalist, television personality, politician. After Tommy Lapid's death, his son Yair - also a well-known journalist and television personality and now running for the Knesset - wrote his father's 'autobiography'. It's a great memoir, funny, heartwarming, and sometimes unbearably sad. I couldn't put it down.

Good read about a fascinating character, and telling it in the first person, as if told to his son was an interesting twist. Just wished it had been edited better. There were many editing mistakes, not the least of which was the year in which Lapid entered the Knesset.
Lisa
This is a must read for anyone interested in Israeli history or politics! The writing style takes time to get into if you are not a Lapid fan, but the stories are rich with details and humor. I can't wait for more of his works to be translated into English!

I couldn't put this book down. It is written in a very engaging manner, the plot is interesting and moves from past to present to past in a way that is simply charming. I highly suggest reading it.

I actually read it in English..... Wonderful book. But, you need to be familiar with Israel , her politics , geography and beauty....

He seems like he was a bit of a blow hard, interesting from a historical perspective though.
